  • Hard working man holds on to life by using the best techonology availabble in his time.

    In a very special kind of way i wanted this guy to live, even though, he looked like a poor version of Robocop. What we have in this episode is a person trying to live his life past the limits given by nature. He is a half human, half machine businessman who has fought very hard to build a big company, however, his son thinks it is time for him to have control of the company. Well, this “kid” really needs to die; what a horrible person he is, but I guess that is what we deserve when we do not teach our children to earn their own living. The ending was a little relief, because our main character managed to survive his son’s hate in a very special way. I hope he was uploaded to a new machine or robot and managed to spank his son one last time.moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (2)

    • (Opening Narration)
      Narrator: Don't be deceived by the youthful appearance of our subject: Darius Stephens. He abused his body for 79 years. Now he is walking on his own bought-and-paid-for two feet, down a path he hopes will lead him into a new life.

    • (Closing Narration)
      Narrator: Darius Stephens, the product of a new generation of medical miracles that began with false teeth, expanded into prosthetic limbs, and reached near godhood in plastic surgery and mechanical hearts. As we continue to second-guess and improve upon nature, we are reminded that there is more to being alive than mere flesh and blood, in the Twilight Zone.
