Goofs

While not all of Col. Glades ribbons (on his chest) are identifiable. He has a Silver Star Ribbon in the bottom row, with a Bronze Star above it. A Silver Star should be in the top row with the Bronze Star close by. But not above it. There is even a Good Conduct ribbon in a row above the Silver Star. And that is not allowed. The ribbons that any one individual in the military is authorized to wear and where he should wear it is spelled out in their record. Awards for valor or gallantry are always at the top. These kinds of mistakes are common in Hollywood. They have very little factual knowledge of the military. See more »

one of the better Outer Limits
1 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

Dr. Mark Crest (Kevin Nealon) is running an experiment to teleport by creating a wormhole with Dr. Cleo Lazar (Terri Hawkes) and overseen by Lt. Col. Lester Glade (Ronny Cox) and the military. The experiment goes terribly wrong and destabilizes engulfing everyone. Crest manages to pull the cable and is pulled back a day. Every time, the experiment goes wrong and he manages to go back in time by pulling the cable. However, the time loop grows shorter each time, animal rights activist Julie Alger (Jennifer Copping) keeps trying to sabotage and Col. Glade is hiding a secret agenda.

This is one of the better Outer Limits episodes. Time loop has been done over and over again in sci-fi. I like a lot of them because the good ones get to build the story in complexity as it goes through the same story multiple times. This one has the twist that the loops are closing which adds to the tension. The acting is pretty good with a surprising Nealon dramatic performance. This one takes the usual interesting basic idea and stays compelling all the way through.
