Has Potential, Bad Ending
7 September 2020 | by dgdxfilmsincSee all my reviews

Has a intriguing beginning, a fascinating middle when the twist comes in, but the ending is not satisfying. Without getting into spoilers, if you didn't like the episode "Not All Men" from Season 1, you won't like this episode. Although it's better written than "Not All Men" but it shares a similar ideology. I will say Topher Grace pulls off some impressive acting in this episode.

I wish this show could move forward with their interesting ideas without forcing illogical ideology. Whereas Rod Serling's original show felt like it was made by a mature adult with life experience, this reboot feels like it was made by a teenager who thinks they know it all.
