Gets Better With Repeat Viewings
5 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A colony in outer space is troubled by a guy with special powers.

For decades I was turned off by this episode by one thing: the make-up job on that guy's eyes. I just could not get past the fake look of it.

But, as I have said in past reviews, repeat viewings do wonders for The Outer Limits, and now today I actually love this hour.

Thanks to the other reviewers, I never picked up on the cross over with Star Trek: Where No Man Has Gone Before, but in my opinion at least...Trek did it better!

Be warned, this hour is a bit slow...but well worth watching...once you get past the guy with the big eyes.
