  • Overdramatic bug-eyed-monster episode.

    While the science behind this episode is possible, and while the characters themselves were interesting, the plot was predictable and the acting was highly variable (at times, perfect and at times, horribly stilted). Also, the interesting ideas were counterbalanced by overdramatic or generic ones that revealed poor plotting. Really, now. Was the bit about the world ending if one bird gets through the time warp back to Eck's home world necessary? Wasn't it enough that a 2-D creature existed? Did we really need the standard "all aliens are dangers to society" police routine? If you're looking for a good TOL episode, you can do better.
