    So what are some of your least favorite episodes, and why? Here are mine:

    1. "The Probe": A great series goes out with a whimper. Everything about this one says that the production crew was mailing it in, playing out the string, or whatever euphemism you prefer.

    2. "Cry of Silence": Maybe just because I'm not an Eddie Albert fan, but this one left me cold.

    3. "Production and Decay of Strange Particles": This one, not the far superior one about the bee woman, should have been the one to get the title "ZZZZZ," but for an altogether different reason.

    4. "Children of Spider County": Great title, dull episode.

    5. "Borderland": It's been a while since I've seen it, but as I recall, there was a lot of talk and very little action.

    1. Behold Eck! - Honestly, the less said about that fiasco, the better.

    2. Tourist Attraction - The most expensive episode in the series, and the dullest.

    3. Production and Decay of Strange Particles

    4. The Brain of Colonel Markham - Yet another take off of Donovan's Brain.

    5. Expanding Human

    I have to admit, the science represented on 'The production and decay of strange particles' was so bad it qualified this episode as a comedy.

    An addendum: I just watched "Architects of Fear" on my DVD set, mainly because I couldn't remember it, and now I see why I couldn't. It wasn't bad enough to supplant any of the episodes I listed in my bottom five, but it wasn't all that good, either--nowhere near the rating this site gives it, in my opinion. The premise was good, but it moved very slowly. By the thirty minute mark, the transformation should have been complete, but it was barely done by the 45 minute mark...not good when the episode itself is only 50 minutes.
