Below-average Outer Limits
on 19 May 2005
The episodes on this disc definitely fall into the category of sex and science-fiction, but they're by no means the sexiest 'Outer Limits' episodes when you consider the many episodes that comprise this fanntastic and innovative shows' history. Particularly during the earlier seasons there were some very sexy/sensual stories, but either the guys in charge of compliling this DVD decided it wouldn't sell as well with mostly early episodes, or perhaps to keep them for other themed DVD's in the future (because they centred on aliens, for example).
But whatever the reason, it unfortunatley makes this compilation feel like below-average 'Outer Limits' and that's a shame, because while all these episodes focus more on sex than anything else, the majority of them are short on plot and not as intense as the 'Outer Limits' can be when at the top of its' game. So in the end this offers mild diversion and quick thrills, but not the intensity or quality we've come to expect.
