Entertaining but derivative of Men in Black

Judd Nelson as Harry the kid is the protégé.
Gerry Chalk as Detective Frank Dayton is Tommy Lee Jones.
This was a decent episode of Outer Limits but not a great one for the
following reason. A classic Outer Limits Episodes really gets me hooked
into the fate of the characters. I did care about the characters but I
dinged it because it was an obvious derivative of 'Men in Black'.
For better episodes of 'The Outer Limits' that are more original see
... 'The Light Brigade' (with Will Wheaton) for sci-fi setting. 'An
Inconstant Moon' - a beautiful love story 'New Lease' - very underrated
story about a scientist who gets a taste of his own medicine and an
empathetic view of his beautiful and long suffering wife.
This is all in my most humble opinion of course.
