Suspension of disbelief just did not kick in on this episode. For one thing, the accident at the beginning of the show would have killed her.
The way her man treated her was painful to watch but really did not morally justify the conclusion that the plot was spinning towards.
There really was no way to identify with the characters. Both of them seemed to go on with their hopeless lives, ignoring the harm it or their own actions did them. She just ignored the problems and looked for distractions. He, bored, tried to hurt her feelings for his own amusement and to stoke his ego. If there was a moral, it was: do not live like these people!
This episode was pretty bizarre. Frankly, I found it boring. Also, there really was not really any science fiction to speak of in it.
