"Drugs Are Bad" Is Today's Lesson....
9 January 2019 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

Troubled father drugs his own son so he will perform better in sports.

The above plotline is enough to bother most viewers but, on top of that, if you were a loyal fan of the original 1960s series, and just happen to bump into this episode (like I did)...this hour will probably bother you even more and make you just a little mad! What were they thinking?? And when the end credits appear we see that some of the makers of the old show were creative advisers on this! Help! Granted, the original series had the odd goofy episode with just as goofy characters (Cry Of Silence, about killer weeds)....but this!

Okay, this is sounding like a bashing of this episode, and I guess it is, but I have to admit I enjoyed it. However, it reads like a more violent-than-usual episode of Power Rangers rather than The Outer Limits.

The key to watching this is simple, just don't think of it as an episode of The Outer Limits, think of it as some goofy time-filler...then you will enjoy it.
