The 4th episode of Masters of Science Fiction aired this past weekend. This was the final episode to be aired, even though two more were filmed.
Like the ones that preceded it, I thought the episode was uninspired, too long and, ultimately, just plain boring. And that’s the general consensus elsewhere. The only reason I gave it a chance was because of the high-caliber talent attached to the project and the fact that they were based on some short stories by big name authors.
So what happened?
I have not read the source material…did it stink because it was adapted poorly? Or was it poor material to begin with? (Did Heinlein and Ellison let us down?) Was it too little material stretched out to cover an hour?
