In six stories from the deepest inner mind, a chaste young
woman develops a deadly sexual appetite; a lonely paraplegic
allows a robot to be his companion; the last man on Earth
interacts with holograms controlled by a beautiful computer
interface; a student's new girlfriend is a dead ringer for
a woman his father rescued from a military experiment 20 years
earlier; a mentally challenged boy is the last person unaffected
by a strange madness; and a man with an inoperable cancer
risks an experimental remedy...
This themed double-disc set features the episodes Caught
in the Act, Valerie 23, Bits of Love, Last
Supper, From Within and The New Breed.
its title, only three episodes in this collection - Caught
in the Act, Valerie 23 and Bits of Love
- deal primarily with sexual relationships, though they all
include some sexual content. Last Supper is only here
because of the jealousy that erupts between father (Peter
Onorati) and son (Fred Savage), while From Within concerns
the release of human inhibitions in general, and The New
Breed deals with evolution more than anything else.
this is a stronger set of episodes than its companion volume,
Among Us, in spite of the rather exploitative cheap
thrills offered up by Caught in the Act.
the best storylines are those of Valerie 23 and The
New Breed. While admittedly pretty hokey, they are both
also gripping. Valerie 23 even manages to overcome
the fact that you can tell from a mile away that Valerie (Sofia
Shinas) will turn into a complete rabbit-boiler. Her possessive
love for Frank (William Sadler) isn't even a technical glitch:
it's part of the intended design! One of her programmers happily
informs us that Valerie is capable of a full range of human
emotions, including jealousy. D'oh!
contrast, when the cancer-ridden Andy (Peter Outerbridge)
injects himself with a potential but untested cure-all, it
really is a case of "What's the worst that can happen?" Well,
just like in the Dr Pepper commercials, things do get
worse, in the most horrific and imaginative ways. The events
are underscored by some particularly dramatic music by John
you can see from the "Starring" line at the top of this review,
there are guest stars a-plenty in this collection. In addition
to leading roles played by a pre-Charmed Alyssa Milano
in Caught in the Act, a pre-Roswell William
Sadler in Valerie 23, Species
star Natasha Henstridge in Bits of Love, Fred Savage
(The Wonder Years) in Last Supper, Doogie
Howser's Neil Patrick Harris in From Within and
Richard Thomas (The Waltons, Battle Beyond the Stars)
in The New Breed, X-Files fans will also spot
more minor roles by Lone Gunman Bruce Harwood in Valerie
23 and Scully's mum Sheila Larkin in Bits of Love.
only additional feature is a five-minute analysis of the DVD's
themes, but with so much episodic material to enjoy and at
such a low price, this volume doesn't really need any sexing
