very, very poor outer limits rip-off
1 December 2013 | by See all my reviews

they did obviously not choose the stories for their content, but for their ability to be filmed in not much more than one room and without any special effects.

virtually every outer limits episode is more interesting than any of these.

also every science fiction short story i ever read (and they are not a few) was better than these episodes.

grabbing any random science fiction anthology and converting it into to a mini series of this kind would have given a much much better result.

what was stephen hawking thinking? i consider him intelligent. probably mo-ney mo-ney mo-ney.
