  • A woman time travels to kill Hitler as an infant to save the future world from his horrific wrath. However, she creates the very monster she set out to destroy

    Best Episode from this Series(2002). This episode is the very meaning of the word IRONY. A woman time travels to kill Hitler as an infant to save the future world from his horrific wrath. She succeeds in killing the biological Hitler only to have the nanny (whom followed her) buy an infant to replace him. Not only is it ironic in the sense that the woman had great intentions but ended up being the creator of what she initially set out to destroy, but it also gives its own little rule of time travel in which you don't neccisary alter history, more as create it. Also, it was found the Hitler was in fact part Jewish, so I think the film kinda subliminally hinted as to why that is with the replaced baby! COOLEST EPISODE!
  • One woman gets a chance to prevent the deaths of millions by murdering an infant Adolf Hitler

    This is definetely one of the best Twilight Zone episode. Its creativity, originality and claver twists remind viewers of the fifties and sixties twilight zone episodes. The character of Andrea is sent from an unknown future back to kill Adolf Hitler It's an interesting possiblity, the power to end millions of death with only one, but Andrea has to battle the consequences her actions will have. The ending is absolutely brilliant. It doesn't take a genuis to guess that she obviously wont actually end up killing Hitler but speculating the twists are fun, and the ending is a treat.
    A brilliant and inventive episode.
