Goofs

When the giant scientists use the "floor suction" system to recapture the fleeing Spindrift crew members in the ductwork, there are several points at which their hair (especially Valerie's) is blowing directly away from the direction they are supposedly being pulled by the suction. See more »

Great Don Marshall performance
12 February 2006 | by (Burlington, VT) – See all my reviews

This episode contains very few "giant" special effects aside from the usual giant props. This is probably because of the many split screen shots of the regular cast and their clones. Yes, a scientist has captured some of the "little people" and is using them in a cloning experiment. The process makes an exact duplicate, including their memory, clothes, hairstyle and make-up. Welcome to the world of Irwin Allen productions.

The only problem is, the clones are unstable in both senses of the word. After awhile, their skin shows spots and they become paranoid and hostile.

So far, it's a typical episode. The twist comes when, after they escape from the scientist, Dan begins to wonder if he's one of the clones. The others laugh it off and remind him his skin isn't showing any spots, but Dan, who is black, knows the spots might not be visible on his skin. It creates a suspenseful episode, and features a great performance by Don Marshall.
