One of the finest hours of sci-fi television
24 January 2019 | by antony-1See all my reviews

What a truly amazing episode. It does exactly what sci-fi does best: look at the humanity in us all through the lens of science fiction.

That no matter how much advance, how much we build cool toys... that all our advances cannot take away that we are fragile human beings.

Moral and ethical dilemmas abound, THIS is what sci-fi is about. It reminded me of the great episodes of The Outer Limits that will stay with you for ages after.

I love the arc of Fringe, it's what I think is what drives it and provides the best of the stories... but for this one episode i just wanted the arc to slip away and instead focus on the amazing character piece that was playing out with the guest actors.
