Trivia

When Glenn Howard (Gene Barry) is introduced to "the Chairman", he is told to call him Walt, with the explanation "We use first names here. Friendlier...". This is a sly reference to Walt Disney and his first-name policies for Disneyland and other Disney businesses. See more »

Best show of the series
4 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen the episode since I was a child, but I remember the imagination and power of it. It was extremely good. It was easily the best show of the entire series. The other comments are dead on about the content and how economically effective it was. It was a mixture of quiet menace and solid science with fond dashes of humour. The "senior citizen's bar" with octogenarian Hippies playing electric guitars was quite memorable.

Someone needs to make a TV series of these Sci Fi gems from the 60's. Episodes like those golden ten episodes of the Outer Limits and Twilight Zone. This would stand right up there with them. It surely would beat the rehashes like the new American Gladiators.
