One wonders if the creators of this Outer Limits episode ever saw the 1933 fantasy film It's Great to Be Alive, since both share essentially the same fantastic plot line. Cryogenically frozen for 40 years, Major Jason Mercer (David Keith) awakens to discover that the earth is now populated exclusively by women; all the men have been killed in an apocalyptic war. Before long, Jason is at the center of a heated debate: Should the female scientists attempt to revitalize the male race -- or should they leave well enough alone, lest the world face total annihilation? "Lithia" first aired on July 3, 1998.
