One Of The Six Stinkers In The Series
11 July 2014 | by StuOzSee all my reviews

This is about the production and decay of strange particles.

Stay clear of this boring hour that might have been rather clever in 1964 but will put you to sleep today.

The story is boring, the script is boring, the actors are boring. There is some nice effects photography in the later stages of the hour but that is about the only good thing I can say about this episode!!!!!!!!

However, only six stinkers in a 49 episode TV series is actually a very good track record. Most 49 episode TV shows would have more stinkers than that. This is just the nature of television. So Limits still stands as a great TV series despite this "decay" at the end of season one.
