I hate this episode. Draggy, drugged plot, especially in the middle. But I RESPECT it, but it's not entertaining. Tourist Attraction is also rather lethargic. But as always it has the great acting etc. RC

Stevens' ONLY solid ep is THE GALAXY BEING. CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT comes over as quaint and silly at this late date, BORDERLAND states some good ideas, but has nowhere to go with them, and PRODUCTION AND DECAY OF STRANGE PARTICLES is one of the original OL's worst episodes...along with TOURIST ATTRACTION, which wasn't written by Stevens. New OL's ep DEJA VU seemed to borrow from both BORDERLAND and CONTROLLED EXPERIMENT, in some ways, but it was about a thousand times better than either of those. In fact, I would consider it one of the new series' 4-star eps...
