Storyline

Days ago Trent awoke with no memory of his past. Since then, sinister men have pursued him constantly. He manages to stay one step ahead of them by following the advice of... his hand! Made of glass and apparently capable of speech, Trent's hand can answer many of his questions. But it cannot tell him who he is or why his enemies seek him until he finds all of its fingers. The only trouble is, they're in the... hands... of his enemies! Written by CommanderBalok

Trivia

The line of dialogue "The 70 billion people of Earth: where are they hiding" was sampled by the experimental music group Cabaret Voltaire for the song "Yashar", from their 1982 album "2X45." See more »

Goofs

When Trent's glass hand has only one or two fingers, he is seen using all fingers when gloved. This is most obvious when he is holding his left hand over Consuelo's mouth to keep her silent and when he retrieves and is gripping the second finger with his gloved hand. See more »

Quotes

Trent: You Kyben were always super patriots, especially when you bombed Earth from ten miles out. How does your patriotism sit with burning women and children alive?
Battle: That's war.
Trent: So's this.

Very original
26 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I beg you to remember that this was written when most TV fans thought of science fiction as Buck Rogers or Flash Gorgon. The ideas and concepts were way ahead of their time for TV. Today we laugh at the special effects and Cosme's but also remember that TOL was made on a very tight budget. lighting effects and camera angles were used with he music to try and add the confused feeling that Trent and Consuelo were enduring. All in all it worked by 60's standards.

You can poke holes or take exception to certain issues that were not addressed but hey, they only had an hour (about 48 minutes without commercials). All in all I feel this is one of the most ingenious and in some ways eerie plots in early TV scifi. It has rightfully earned its place in the hearts of scifi fans.
