Members of a subsequent expedition are hypnotized into believing that they have landed in the childhood community of their leader and have been reunited with deceased family and friends, and they are poisoned by the Martians. Col. John Wilder leads a third expedition and learns that a chicken pox virus brought to Mars by the first two expeditions has almost eradicated the Martian population.

Maj. Jeff Spender:
I just believe in things that were done. And there were so many things done here. Streets and houses and books and big canals and clocks and places with names - things that were used and touched for centuries. And I don't see how we could ever use them without feeling uncomfortable. Oh, we could change the names, but the old names will still be there. So no matter how we touch Mars, we won't be able to really touch it. See, that'll make us angry. We'll get mad at that and just rip it up. We'll ...

This mini series was great. Comparing it to big budget features like Star Wars is unfair.Its much more intelligent than Star Wars. Star Wars is also not real Science Fiction its Fantasy. Well, enough about Star Wars. If you like the Twilight zone or Star Trek, I believe you'll love this program. Yes its dated, but the genius of Ray Bradbury shines through. I found the film to be better than the Illustrated man or Fareheight 451. There's not a lot of Action, but its not suppose to be an action film. Its very methodical and will leave you thinking at the end.The acting isn't great, but its good to see Roddy MacDowell again. Hes an Icon like Peter Cushing or Pam Grier. All together its a classic!
