|The Outer Limits - S06E01 - Judgment Day (Aired: 2000-01-21) |
Capitol punishment makes it to primetime. Judgment Day has quickly become the hottest show on the Justice Channel and on television - period. Produced by Jack Parson and hosted by Stan Draper and Heather Cattrell, the show has turned the Justice system on its ear by becoming judge, jury and executioner, allowing a murder victim's family to carry out the death sentence on live television. Today, Allison Channing will hunt down Declan McMahon, the petty criminal who killed her sister Kaitlin. Declan gets a 20 minute head start, but he's got a microchip in his brain that's tuned to the taser that Allison carries. He's also had a camera implanted in his eye, allowing the home audience to see his point of view as they phone in tips and send digicam images to the studio in exchange for cash rewards. There's only one problem: Declan insists he was framed, that the security camera footage that would have cleared him has been altered by someone. With Allison on his trail and the ratings going through the roof, Declan turns to his brother Dooley to help him provehis innocence to Allison, his would-be executioner and to the watching world.
