Deja vu all over again!
6 March 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

During the first season of "The Outer Limits", at least four different episodes had to do with power! This makes this fourth show of its type a bit dull--though I suspect this is still a pretty weak episode regardless.

The show begins at some sort of nuclear power research station. They are experimenting with some weird material that fell from space--which, as we all know, is NOT a good idea. Soon, the material begins to go out of control--releasing tons of dangerous radiation and actually turning workers into electrical-nuclear zombies! Can the boss (George Macready) stop this all from consuming the planet? Aside from seeing Leonard Nimoy in a small part, there isn't a lot to distinguish this one. Not a bad episode but also too familiar and not especially effective.
