Ridiculous Premise
10 October 2016 | by dlpburkeSee all my reviews

The Outer Limits underwent a slide in quality after Season 5 (Season 6 was terrible and Season 7 was hit and miss). Likely the main writing staff of the seasons prior to Season 6 moved on, and this is the result.

When you have a premise this daft (come on, which guy would buy a robot to take his place around the home? And which wife would allow it haha?), nothing too good can come from it. It's just all-round silly. It at least remains slightly entertaining, but it's not well written, edgy, or anything we came to expect from the earlier episodes.

At least the next episode is good.
