Although the final episode of the 2nd colour season this episode is actually quite good. It starts off looking as though it's going to be very silly, but actually it's another morality tale about family. (as an aside I can't help thinking all the luridly coloured 2nd and 3rd season episodes would have worked better in black and white). There's some strangely attired aliens (which somehow work and look very sinister and otherworldly indeed) and economical reuse of props from earlier episodes (including yet another reuse of the Jupiter 2's freezing tubes and the circular rocket base which has also been used on numerous occasions). As usual Dr Smith tries to bargain with a bunch of aliens to get back to earth and gets into trouble. Guy Williams and Mark Goddard are only briefly in this episode. The alien guest star is the splendid John Carradine.
