What! Again!
20 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Another lame attempt to reuse scenes from the previous three seasons. In this one, a reporter played by Alan Thicke is doing a broadcast, attempting to expose the federal government's efforts at genetic engineering, including the use of cloning. The broadcast isn't bad and is handled nicely by Thicke, but to take unrelated episodes and try to fuse them just doesn't work. People who care about this stuff must have been so angry to see how the original plots were ignored so a bit of footage could be taken out of context. It is exciting, certainly, but we are given a dose of what will happen early on. Like so much of the science fiction/fantasy anthology stuff, we know that the characters are constantly swimming uphill. I haven't seen future episodes, but I sincerely hope they can come up with a budget that would allow them to do a new episode, even an exciting one, to conclude the season.
