All pretty good episodes

(4 stars)

Favorite is Low-Flying Aircraft, with its pre-Children of Men dystopian theme, which also plays into the current Zika crisis in South America. A near-future couple anxiously awaits the birth of their latest child at an abandoned resort in Spain, anxious because previous tries (like other mothers worldwide) have been born deformed. A doctor who lives nearby tries to give them hope. Has an eerie dream / nightmare quality to it.
