The Outer Limits/Afterlife - 19/5/1996
21 February 2009 | by babydolphin8See all my reviews

Linden Stiles struggles to retain his humanity after he is convicted of a murder he didn't commit. When asked to make a frightful choice: accept execution or become the subject of a secret military experiment -- he chooses to live. As the experiment progresses, Stiles fights the dehumanizing influence of injected DNA from an alien lifeform. The attending doctor is troubled by a growing awareness of the inhumanity of the experiment itself, of the men in charge and of her own role. Using his preter-natural strength, Stiles escapes. Then, hunted by his former compatriots, he faces a decision even more difficult than the one that set him on such a tragic course.

This was one of my favourites episodes of the new version The Outer Limits. I have to admit I was not consistent with my viewership with the series so there was many episodes I it did not have a chance to see. The message of this episode is the moral ambiguity of our governments will do to create the ultimate weapon of war whatever the consequences.
