  I had to stop watching in the middle to ask You, guys, do You maybe know why is this piece of garbage in publication order right before my ST Milestone, by which I mean "The City on the Edge of Forever"

That makes it double shitty...

  Yikes, another bad one. Nothing in this plot makes sense. Even if it introduces the concept of alternate realities, the rendering is so bad it takes away all the interest.

The scenes where Lazarus and anti-Lazarus switch place are awfully long and happen way too often. And the idea of total annihilation of everything that exists if they meet is total crap.

The ending where anti-Lazarus saves the day and sacrifices himself by getting trapped between the two universes with his opposite ego was the only decent twist for me.
