Hey there, I saw my first episode of Outer Limits last week. It was titled "Josh" for the main character played by Alex McArthur. Josh was a man with special powers who was captured and cruelly examined by the military. The main plot point was whether he was alien or divine. The special effects were cheesy and the writing was melodramatic but I enjoyed the episode, especially Alex McArthur's portrayal of Josh. Anyone else have an opinion? Sherry

>Anyone else have an opinion? > >Sherry I liked JOSH fine, though at first I thought we were in for an ET retread. Of course there is no answer ever given to Josh's true origin, which is how it should be. Ruppenthal's second OL, MONSTER, is well-written, but he has nothing new to bring to the well-worn plot, IMHO. (I wont tell you what the plot IS, but suffice it to say that the original OL did an ep very, very similar to it.) But JOSH had enough of a new angle to hold me throughout. "It is said that Music is a universal language, crossing the barriers of culture, age, and language. Perhaps, eventually, we will learn that it also spans those of time... and space."

Personally, it's one of my favourites, and MGM liked it so much they may make it into it's own series.

Well, that sounds like it would quickly become tedious "Starman" stuff, but we'll see... "It is said that Music is a universal language, crossing the barriers of culture, age, and language.
