I hope Harlan Ellison doesn't sue me for posting this. He did sue James Cameron over it and was awarded an undisclosed settlement. Needless to say this was one of the better episodes of the otherwise mediocre show, The Outer Limits. Just be ready for a cringe inducing scene where they repeatedly refer to our solar system as a "galaxy." When will people ever learn?

I completely agree. This is one of the better, more memorable, Outer Limits episodes.

And it's amazing how often, especially in film and television, that "Solar System," "Galaxy," and "Universe" were (and occasionally still are) misused.

My favorite part is where tries to talk to the cat. Classic. And it is a depressingly common error. It happens in comics, too. C'est la vie.
