I'm told that Nicholas Lea ("In Our Own Image") will be doing another episode of OL, called "The Inheritors." Do you think this will be a sequel to "In Our Own Image"? Or a remake of the old OL ep by that name? Leigh

A good one to do, since the budget just wasn't there for that ep, but can they make it as good as the original _story_, sfx aside?

Most haven't been as good as the originals, IMO. And somehow I can't imagine "The Inheritors" being done in the '90s. There was something so sweet and innocent and 1960s about it. I liked it, but it's really hard to picture it being done today. We're far too paranoid now. Leigh

>I have to say, I've been pretty disappointed with the remakes. Most haven't >been as good as the originals, IMO. I thought I ROBOT and FEASIBILITY STUDY were better than the originals. NIGHTMARE was about as good. The "remake" of THE MAN WITH THE POWER, Chris Ruppenthal's MONSTER, is a pretty creepy ep but has NOTHING new to add that the original didn't already cover. "You see?
