My Favorite Episode of The Outer Limits

The original series of The Outer Limits was something of a lame monster-of-the-week show. Rather unimpressive. The modern series in the 90s, however, was a majestic depiction of great science fiction stories. My favorite episode is "The Human Operators", written by Harlan Ellison. It is a tale of the indomitable human will rising up against oppression. Here's the first part.

Be forewarned: there's a nude scene. It's tasteful and romantic, like the one in the director's cut of Earnest Goes to Camp. But I thought that readers might like to know ahead of time.
