What an Episode!!
12 November 2006 | by (london england) – See all my reviews

I am old enough to remember the original Twilight Zone and Outher Limits series on TV. The newer Twilight Zone series was disappointing at times, but the New Outer Limits was always thought-provoking and adult sci-fi at its best. Quality of Mercy is perhaps the best episode EVER of The new Outer Limits, and that's saying something! And this is the best thing Robert Patrick's ever done!! What a shock, depressing, sickening ending!! It was a real shame that this series came to the end of its run, and when are we going to get the complete collection here in the UK on DVD? We're always the last to get the cool stuff. Anyway, regardless of that, this particular story gets full marks on every count!
