Sucked! Sucked! Sucked! Sucked! Sucked!

This had all the balls stripped from it. If ever there was TZ that didn't ever need to be remade - and I do mean EVER - this is it. The tension is gone, the subtle direction of Douglas Heyes is gone, the drama of Maxine Stuart, unseen in the original but was the lady under the bandages, gone.

The only saving grace on this story was they reused Rod's script.

1!

Or, as some would say it, Su-hu-HU-HUCKED! Sucked big time, sucked horribly, sucked the big meat missile.

A 2 from me. The episode just doesn't work in colour as the twist will be telegraphed before you come close to the end.

It wasn't me, and normally I can figure out who voted. (or how high/close)
Unless it was LoBo, I have no clue.


In fact, I didn't vote on this one at all.
I don't know exactly what my vote would be, but it wouldn't be very high.....
Been ages since I saw it, and I remember damn little about it, so I know I didn't think highly of it.
