Narrator: God looked upon His world and called it good, but Man was not content. He looked for ways to make it better, and built machines to do the work. But in vain we build the world, unless the builder also grows.

Issues Which Are Pertinent Today...Even More Than Then.....
18 July 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

PERHAPS WE ARE just a little overly enthusiastic about this episode. We come about this definitely slanted and decidedly prejudiced attitude honestly. Ours is a tradition of story reading and appreciation that has its roots in the genres of Science Fiction and the Super Hero; which were mainly featured in the pages of the Pulp Magazines and their visual counterpart, the Comic Book.

ANOTHER REASON WHY we have developed this devotion to the episode is that the author Eando Binder is a legendary writer in both the fields of the written narrative and the illustrated comics.

WHILE THIS IS just conjecture on our part, it would appear that this episode (as well as the I. ROBOT episode of the revival OUTER LIMITS Series of 19095-2002) was probably intended to be a pilot episode for a spin-off series of ADAM LINK.

WITHOUT THE AUTHOR'S being heavy handed, over dramatic or sanctimonious, the general tone of the stories are a sort of reminder to we of the Human Race to check our moral compass and never forget those basic foundational items such as the Golden Rule. In this Age of fanatical terrorism, questionable moral equivalences and total disrespect for Human Life, we need Adam Link more than ever.

INCIDENTALLY, THIS WRITER'S name of "Eando" was a nom-de-plume of two brothers. Earl and Otto Binder combined their first initials and thus E and O became "Eando."

WHEN WE TOLD Schultz about this his comment was: "Clever, these Americans!"
