Well, a 'so-so' episode, all things considered. In fact, the episode of the Hunger, which followed it, was better I thought. I just thought the story was predictable, despite all the standard sci-fi convolutions . Another story of a father too busy to look after his family properly, who gets a not so just reward. But I'm sure it will get better. What do you all think? I'm sure Peter P. loved it.

I thought it was a little better then so-so. Of course, an average outer limits is better then 95% of the stuff on tv. IT did however remind me of an adoption one along the same lines, cant remember the episode name. Anyway, the reason I thought it was a little better then average was that it dealt with something that ive only seen on the Outer Limits. The probability that there will be someting random with the whole cloning & genetic alteration procedure & that cloned or genetically altered humans will create a whole class of inferior humans that will find it hard to compete in the future. I have never seen this point raised anywhere else. JStrongbow wrote: > Well, a 'so-so' episode, all things considered. > In fact, the episode of the Hunger, which followed it, was better I thought.

Sure thought that was what it was going to be, too. I found it fairly entertaining until the last act, when the "suspension of disbelief" went down like the Hindenberg. The actor playing the cop had not struck me as a maniac, even though he took some dire steps to capture his mutant son. SO the stuff at the finish, with everyone more scared of him than they had REASON to be, didn't ring true. This was the same thing that messed up last year's REGENERATION for me; the "bad guy" didn't play his part BAD enough, and I never thought he was _really_ evil! He and the CRIMINAL NATURE cop have both done some awful things and have some dreadful secrets, but neither seemed to me to be deranged in a violent, monstrous, scary fashion.
