This one has it all...
6 March 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better episodes of "The Outer Limits" and it seems to have it all--excellent writing, lots of originality and some exceptional guest actors. In particular, Sam Wanamaker, David Opatashu and Joyce Van Patten help to make this one better since they all are very good actors.

The show begins with an alien species kidnapping a group of humans by literally chopping part of a town out of the Earth and bringing it to their planet. At first, the humans don't realize what has happened but they soon come to realize many BAD things--that they are not on Earth, the aliens are infected with a horrible virus and this is all part of a study to see if ALL the people of Earth can be enslaved to serve these brilliant but evil aliens. How the humans handle all this makes this one great--and very, very poignant. The ending, in particular, is one that might just make you shed a tear or two! Really. This is just exceptional throughout and I won't say more, as I don't want to spoil it.
