This was one of the better episodes I've seen so far, mainly because of all the familiar faces, and how both stories were clever and interesting. Those faces include Dennis Cole(9 total episodes!), Roddy McDowell, Donna Mills, Cameron Mitchell, Brett Halsey, and R.G. Armstrong, and I'm not hesitant to say that they all did a credible job. I thought the plots were fairly original. One segment had Cindy Carter(Mills)wishing to run a company, and things are going smoothly for a bit, but you just know the bottom will fall out; both McDowell and Halsey are very good here, and I liked how Mills' character went from sappy to aggressive when she finds out she's been wronged, even though when she and Gary(McDowell)leave the island together, I didn't sense any romantic chemistry between them. The other story had Mike Jenner(Cole)hunting down a man(Mitchell)he believes is responsible for killing his father in a botched robbery scheme; Armstrong played the sadistic officer very effectively. There's a cool flashback that shows how Jenner's father really died, and a few decent shots of the prison camp at night. It seems the writers had their imaginations working for both these stories, and it's very evident by the end of this episode.
