Just magic!
25 January 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I won't give a plot outline for this episode of LIS. Watch it for yourself to experience one of the best episodes of the entire series and perhaps one of the finest hours of TV made in the US at the time. I saw this episode when it first aired on Australian TV in the mid 60s in glorious monochrome. It had a huge impact on me because it was the first time I think I ever contemplated the nature of the universe, of existence and life.

How could anyone not be hooked by this wonderful story with a simply superb score written by the then "Johnny" Williams. The final few minutes of this episode contain, perhaps, the finest music themes ever composed for a TV show, bar none. To this day the final scenes of "My Friend, Mr. Nobody" can move me to tears and they will for you too.
