Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The nuclear war of 2047 A.D. has wiped out virtually all of mankind. The sole survivor is Aidan Hunter (Jon Tenney), currently living deep in an underground bomb shelter. To stave off loneliness, Aidan has surrounded himself with holographic images of his friends and loved ones. Not realizing that it is best to leave well enough alone, Aidan tries to make love to the beautiful holographic interface Emma (Natasha Henstridge) -- and is forced to pay dearly for playing fast and loose with a computer's emotions. "Bits of Love" originally aired on January 19, 1997, as the inaugural episode of The Outer Limits' third season.
