Part 2 of "The Inheritors" on "The Outer Limits" was a fine conclusion to the previous one
21 August 2012 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

In Part 2 of "The Inheritors" ep of "The Outer Limits", government agent Adam Ballard (Robert Duvall) continues his pursuit of Lt. Phillip Minns (Steve Ihnat) and his three men-Sgt. James Conover (Ivan Dixon), Pfc. Francis Hadley (Dee Pollock), and Pvt. Robert Renaldo (James Frawley)-all of whom are in some alien mind control. And now Ballard finds out they're taking some handicapped children with them...Okay, let me say just now that while there's some suspicion among the men under Minns about their mission and why they're doing what they're doing on it, the explanation puts nearly everyone at ease when it's said in a calm and understanding manner especially concerning the kids. So on that note, both eps of "The Outer Limits" called "The Inheritors" are recommended. P.S. I didn't mention in my review of the previous installment that a couple of "Hogan's Heroes" future players were in that one: besides Dixon-who was Sgt. Kinchloe there, Leon Askin-known as General Burkhalter there-was his boss here though he had no scenes with Dixon. Also, one of the children was played by Suzanne Cupito who later changed her name to Morgan Brittany as an adult and played Katherine Wentworth on the original "Dallas". Incidentally, she also played a child of similar condition as here previously on a movie called Stage at Thunder Rock which I reviewed a few days ago.
