Another junk episode
9 April 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

MONSTERS seems to be getting worse and worse. These season 2 episodes - I watched this at the same time as HABITAT - seem to be missing any real monster action and instead feature dull characters in dull story lines. HALF AS OLD AS TIME sees an elderly man searching for the fountain of youth, which he discovers thanks to some Native American mythology.

Unfortunately to regain his younger years the old man must make a terrible sacrifice, and the entire episode hinges on whether or not he'll go through with it after all. Sadly it's nowhere near as dramatic as it sounds, the cheesy production values giving it a pantomime feel instead. For some reason a young actor plays the old man in makeup, which is hardly convincing, and the acting is very poor.
