  • Bottom of the barrel in that it's much too preposterous.

    2.1
    When I criticize this episode as preposterous, what I refer to is the absurdity of the alien being two-dimensional. In the episode, the Optometrist tries to explain the principle by using a sheet of paper, saying that when the alien shows only the SIDE of his body that it becomes "invisible." That comparison between the alien and a sheet of paper does not make sense at all, because if you look at the EDGE of a sheet of paper, it STILL has a thickness, a depth. So the idea that an object can be Two-dimensional makes no sense at all. In order for any object to have substance, it has to have THREE dimensions.
