Storyline

An emissary from the future struggles to convince the next U.S. President to jump from an airliner, before it crashes, killing him and setting off a disastrous future. The candidate is already torn in several directions, elated from a big primary win, avoiding an interview by an aggressive reporter, excited by having his mistress on-board, with his frigid wife absent. The time traveler assures the candidate he needs no parachute, because the advanced technology his presidency will make possible, allows them to scoop him out of the sky. Written by David Stevens

Decompression
25 June 2006 | by (Oakland County) – See all my reviews

"The best" should reserved for episodes that grab the viewer's attention and keeps them super-glued to the plot, character development, and writing. This episode does that.

Bruce Boxleitner and cast are excellent in this "will he or won't he" character study. Unlike other Outer Limits series, the plot moves along at an even clip. Most other OL episodes pad sucrose-laden dialog that does nothing to enhance its value other than add time to the hour long series.

Decompression is the exception to the rule. The pacing, dialog, and characters drive the plot, making it worthwhile to the very end. And make sure you watch it to the very end. You'll be glad you did.
