The Outer Limits Slide Into Obscurity
18 December 2014 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

The plot is interesting. A group of astronauts are on board a ship that has been sent to create a biosphere. There is all kinds of conflict because the politicians on Earth are finding ways to destroy the planet. An android, who is hooked up to the computer on the ship, decides to activate a destruct sequence because in his "mind" he sees the human race as an infestation. The sad thing is that the final two episodes, the producers dredge up scenes from past episodes, which really don't work. For a few bucks, they could have created a set of original dramatic examples that would have progressed a reasonably adroit offering. Instead, those of us who saw all these previous shows wouldn't sit there saying, "But in that plot ........" Which means that a group of writers sit in a room for a few days trying like hell to patch together this drivel. As usual, there is quite a cynical denouement.
