A True Classic
5 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

An amusement park spaceship is actually a real spaceship with real aliens!

What a great storyline! The first half of the hour is better than the second half but the whole thing rocks. At the top of my head I can't think of another sci-fi TV show or movie that has taken on this storyline. But everything got stolen from The Outer Limits so I am guessing the story has been done again somewhere?

Don Gordon did so much for 1960s TV sci-fi, his two roles in The Outer Limits, his one role in Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea and one role in QM's The Invaders are great. The guy may not be remembered by all but he has a place in TV history with me.
