  • This episode is very special because of a combination of great acting talent and a thought-provoking, original story line.

    I have seen this particular epsiode (both DVD and VHS versions) of the original Outer Limits series far more times than I have seen any other entertainment. The reason I enjoy it so much is due to the outstanding acting talents of Martin Landau and Shirley Knight, as well as the story line, dealing with time travel, and the ability of one person to change the course of future events. This episode skillfully weaves an entertaining story about influencing future events, that have occured in the past for some of the characters, but for other characters, places those events still in their future. The dialogue is high class melodrama, making it thoroughly enjoyable and entertaining for me since I am quite the sucker for sappy, literate, melodramatic dialogue. I realize that this type of story may not be to everyone's liking, but it is to mine.
