They're Coming for Us; They're in Us
22 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A shock-jock spends his time talking to the lunatic fringe. People who have been abducted by aliens call him and plead their case. He rails at them and belittles their very being. He is a really offensive, nihilistic man who has no scruples at all. After telling one man to help everyone out and do away with himself, the man waits for the radio guy and immolates himself with gasoline. As he is burning up, a glowing presence leaves his body. It is true, but the shock-jock can't reconcile this, imagining there has to be some sort of explanation. The executives start to see him as dangerous to their ratings and ask him to apologize to the family of the man, but he refuses. A young woman who is part of a group that is aware of these aliens inside our bodies enlists him, hoping to get him to assist their efforts. As time passes, he realizes that there are indeed great dangers out there which sets a series of events in motion. There is nothing wrong with the episode. It's just that it follows the pattern of so many of these Outer Limits offerings.
