I found the main body of the episode a little long, and the constant noise a bit annoying. Obviously it was meant to be so the moments of silence were more effective, but still...

A first watch for me, so I wondered whether the end would be that she ends up spending so much time out of time that she ages before everyone else, and ends up an old woman; a little lesson in appreciating the moment. The ending we did get though I thought to be very good actually. If she un-freezes time everybody dies, so it's quite a good ironic and dark little ending. You wanted time? Here you go...

Recorded this today off the Horror Channel and just watched it. Thought it was not bad and the ending was more akin to 'Time enough at Last'
Strange the way the 1980's episodes seem more dated than the 60's ones.

I much preferred this half to the first, the ending was really quite haunting. It must have been so much fun filming the "frozen" scenes too. Just starting to watch episode 2 now.
