Nice episode
26 September 2013 | by (The Last New Jersey Drive-In on the Left) – See all my reviews

After Virdon (sturdy work by Ron Harper) gets gravely injured, Galen (Roddy McDowall in typically fine form) has to risk contacting his old sweetheart Kira (an excellent performance by Jacqueline Scott), who's a prominent surgeon. Moreover, Galen and Burke (solid James Naughton) must obtain steal a forbidden book on human anatomy that's needed for the operation to save Virdon's life. Director Arnold Laven maintains a steady pace and serious tone throughout while exploring the themes of trust, loyalty, and compassion. Barry Oringer's engrossing script offers an interesting exploration of the rules, taboos, and superstitions existent in human slave culture. The operation sequence is quite tense and gripping. Jamie Smith-Jackson brings a touching vulnerability to her role as browbeaten servant girl Arna, who is picked as a reluctant blood donor for Virdon's operation. Michael Strong also does well as gruff chief orderly Travin. Mark Lenard as the huffy Urko and Booth Colman as the cagey Zaius both make welcome appearances. A worthy show.
