Goofs

In Part 1, Jaime watches the madman's doomsday-warning message in color on the full-size table-model color TV in her kitchen, yet here in the recap of Part 1, Jaime is shown watching the same mad scientist's broadcast on the same large TV set, but the show is in B&W. See more »

Quotes

Jaime Sommers: [about Dr. Cooper] He told me that you never appreciate life as much as you do when you're closest to death. And today he took every leader of the world to his own funeral and let them feel death right up close. I mean what could be a better inspiration for living in peace than that?
Dmitri Muskov: But will they remember it tomorrow?

machine-woman vs. human computer
9 December 2014 | by (Estero Island) – See all my reviews

Written and directed by series creator kenny johnson, this two-parter is arguably the pinnacle of the series. Alone at an enormous desert complex, jaime takes on a supercomputer which has been programmed by its dying creator (lew ayres - ALL QUEST ON THE WESTERN FRONT, BATTLESTAR GALACTICA) to destroy humanity unless all nations pledge to never detonate a nuclear weapon again. When a disbelieving third world country detonates a test bomb, the countdown to Armageddon is begun. Jaime battles against waves of defenses, trying to reason with the computer while descending toward its core. The casting of lew was a brilliant coup - as the star of the DR. KILDARE series, he had registered as a conscientious objector when drafted for WWII. The country was outraged and his career disappeared, until an Oscar nomination in 1948. An opportunity to play dr. kildare again died, when the network refused to honor his request for no cigarette sponsorship. His turn here as the ultimate person of peace is perfect. With no one to play against except a disembodied voice, lindsay turns in a performance a million miles beyond good. The dramatic twists and turns are searing.
