Best Episode of Series
25 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Deprogrammers" is the best written, acted, and directed of the new Outer Limits series. It has the creepiest and scariest "monsters" and the plot line is close to flawless. By far, it is my favorite. The ending is a real surprise, and it has great twists and turns.

It fits in perfectly with the theme of other episodes dealing with wars with alien races. It manages to compress a great deal of plot material into an hour episode. James Crocker is apparently a master science fiction writer and a word craftsman.

Anyone who wants to capture the essence of the Outer Limits series can do without some of the more forgettable episodes, but this is definitely not one of them.
