I am a fan of "The Outer Limits" - the original series that is. This remake however is more shocking. Many of these newer episodes have sex or violence incorporated into the storyline, many others showcase the evils of the human mind (the killing of others, the detonation of bombs etc.).
What was once a show about the unknown - or aliens from Outer space - seems to have developed into a bit more of a drama.
Granted, I was glad that they brought this series back, and a few episodes are decent (mainly the ones that are more "sci-fi" in content, like the original) but I think I still prefer the original series over this.
