A high-strung radar operator is convinced that UFOs are following the test rockets he monitors at a secret facility in Pecos, New Mexico. His kids' new playmate, an odd little girl who feels no pain, causes him to jump to conclusions; he's sure the child and her family are spies from outer space.

Harassing Little Rednecks and Their Father
15 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is as much about fear and bigotry as it is about the little science fiction tale that ensues. It's about a man who works at a facility where rockets are tracked with radar. He is in a lousy mood all the time because he has seen some shadows on the radar screen and can't explain what they are. He snaps at his wife and his two boys, a couple of little Nazis in training. As he storms off to work, a little girl, new to the neighborhood, comes to play with the boys. They, of course, are cruel and unkind to her. She also suffers from a nervous condition where she can't feel pain (a condition that really exists). She is hit by a truck and draws suspicion when she eventually gets up an returns home. To make matters worse, one of the boys spends a large part of his time, looking into the windows of the family. The do talk about space ships and such, but it appears to be into a dictation device of some kind. The boys write "Martians go home" in chalk on the sidewalk in front of the house. This jerk now goes to the sheriff to complain about these people. It goes on from there. I would like to know if we were to ever identify with this guy. He's ugly and abusive. Watch it and express your opinion here.
