I love this Episode! It's in direct relation with the events that happened at Columbine.
1 May 2011 | by orioles2011See all my reviews

The ending is extremely well written. And hit's on the very root's and reasons why event's like columbine happen. Aired only 2 years after the columbine events. I think this episode really has helped some teens who have watched it. And how under certain circumstances bulling can push some kids to far. That's how well the end is written, and performed.

This is an outstanding series. I just started getting back into it again. I wish they would come out with another science fiction show that has the same plots and story lines as The Outer Limits. Based on science future/past/present fiction and fact, It's an outstanding series, that really get's you thinking. Highly recommend TV series.
