  • Interesting concept, but tedious execution. If the show had been 30 minutes shorter, it would have been twice as good.

    3.0
    The summary for this show is correct, but imagine that same review twice as long and interspersed with lots of running around from place to place. That's what this episode is like. The concept is interesting but simply suffers from too much filler; the wrap-up at the end is weak (they had to spend 40+ minutes explaining a premonition?). There's also an overemotional, helpless, and dumb female which is grating, although other episodes were definitely worse in this department. On the plus side, the figure in limbo is mysterious and features nice FX that stand the test of time, the scenes of stopped motion are eerie, and you can make it all the way through the episode (but just barely).moreless

Except one: the legend of the Gordian knot. A knot so intricate and convoluted that no man could untie it, For there are problems so perplexing that they're seemingly impossible to solve when man ventures to the outer limits of his experience.

    • Control Voice: (closing narration) Man is forever solving the most perplexing problems as he ventures every further into the unknown. But where are the outer limits of his ingenuity? Will he ever encounter a problem, a gordian knot which he cannot ultimately cut?
