  • Jeez, what a bunch of bozos.

    Another Outer Limits episode which just basically turns out to be so much smoke and mirrors. And what exactly was that weird little alien dude scurrying around anyway? Where did it come from? Was that ever explained? If it was, I'm afraid that it eluded my notice. So anyway, Culp is given ever more reason to rue his participation in this program as things go on, and by the end the effect (on me, at least) is not, "Wow, what a noble effort to end all internecine strife on our planet!" but more like, Jeez, what a bunch of bozos. And the Control Voice pretty much seems to be admitting at the end that the whole past hour was pretty goofy. (lol)
