Same Tiired Old Plot
12 December 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

In the seventh season, we can see that this series was starting to grind to a halt. It's rather unimaginative in light of previous efforts. Once again, a person with delusions of grandeur hooks up with the evil age of computer dominance. The story begins with a tech guy realizing he is in over his head, confronted by a flaming red entity, which grabs him by the throat and basically hangs him. Just before this happens, he makes a phone call to another guy from the company, telling him that they need to find a way to shut down what they are working on. After his "mysterious" disappearance, things go on as before at the office, but something horribly wrong. As with so many "Outer Limits" episodes, the power of the antagonist is so great that it makes confronting it really hopeless. There is the usual conspiracy thing going on and nobody knows what is up. As for the conclusion, we see it coming a mile away.
