The Okay One
10 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

An evil alien teacher wants to help an earth boy.

Another IMDb poster has found hidden homosexual ideas (between the kid and the adult) in the storyline of this episode. I must admit none of that entered my mind when watching this hour but it is always fun trying to read stuff into a series like The Outer Limits. There is no question the series loved sticking in hidden ideas.

The Special One might not be a favourite of mine but it is a bit different to the usual Outer Limits hours and there is the odd moment that really shines. The variety of settings/characters in this series is outstanding!
