This Is The Future
19 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A futuristic 21st century hour about duplicates and an ape-like monster.

The duplicates storyline is fine and very compelling, I can forgive the stupid looking ape-costume, but the thing to watch out for is the futuristic cars/phones/lights/buildings/cloths! The props/art department are the stars of this hour!

The building is question is the famous Chemosphere house which now requires research from me.

Another poster has noted how good the Harry Lubin music score is, but I don't agree, in fact I would go as far as saying that the season two scores are getting on my nerves!

1960s TV produced some of the best scores out (see Irwin Allen TV, Batman, Star Trek, The Invaders, The Outer Limits Season One) but the sleepy level of music is some of season two is just not good enough!
