Trivia

Once Marie has accepted her baby is Christ, she starts wearing more blue clothing. The Virgin Mary is often depicted wearing blue, especially a light blue veil. In the last shot of the episode Marie is wearing a hood that is light blue, making her look very similar to the statue of Mary in the Catholic Church she visits. See more »

Totally Lame

I love the Outer Limits and this had virtually no characteristics of a typical good Outer Limits episode and I was very surprised that it was so well rated. Basically, a religious zealot dupes a young couple to * * SPOILER ALERT * * clone Jesus.

This was a bad combination of The Omen, Rosemary's Baby, and various other bad 70's movies. 1. Everyone was wooden and I did not care about the characters. David Stiers (Winchester from M.A.S.H.) gave a valiant but futile attempt to look convincing. In a good Outer Limits episode you ALWAYS care about the actors and it kills you when there is a bad ending.

2. Pacing, in a good Outer Limits episode they use the non-story time for character development but in this episode there simply was no character development.

I kept watching this episode to see when it was going to pick up and it never does. Please watch virtually any other Outer Limit's episode before judging this series.
