This is a pretty good effort. The Truman Bradley part had to do with time (in the episode, "Time is just a place"). The story is a simple one. A new couple has moved in next door and they act in a rather off manner. He is an inventor. As a matter of fact, he has invented a roving vacuum cleaner, not unlike the ones we can buy today that move about the house in our absence. He also has a flashlight that acts as an x-ray device. The nice guy gets nosey and begins to check out the stranger. At a dinner party, the strange man relates a science fiction story he is writing. It's about a group of time travelers who have left a planet because of the oppressive environment. Unfortunately, those in power have sent agents out to look for them. During a particularly severe electrical storm, things fall apart. This is pretty good television as simple and stark as it is.
