The Sets, The Aliens, The Cast, The Music: Love It
27 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

US soldiers are sent to an alien planet as POWs.

First viewed in the 1980s when I was very young, I was turned off by the "stage show" feel of this hour but always liked Time Tunnel's Whit Bissell appearing as a General...again.

Viewed again this year when I am older...now I love it. I love everything about it! The sets, the aliens costumes, the tone, Martin Sheen, Whit Bissell, the beginning/closing narration and the well matched music score.

The IMDb has revealed that a third season classic Star Trek got some ideas from this hour. I will need to re-watch that Trek!
