Yet Another Energy Being
27 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Yet another energy being creates death and terror.

This series was beginning to repeat itself in plots and the lead actor (Scott Marlowe) is now way too associated with another Limits episode (The Forms Of Things Unknown) where he played a much more memorable/colourful character: "Andre".

I am so glad that shows like The Outer Limits and QM's The Invaders had a massive parade of guest stars each week, it gave the shows variety in faces on the screen, the only negative side to that is that both shows often demanded each guest star come back for a second or third episode playing a totally different character in the same series. Not a big issue but in the case of "Woodwork" this got on my nerves.

"Woodwork" might not be a favourite but it is still good entertainment.
