neat special effects
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to agree with a previous poster that one of the cool things about this episode was the genuine sense of alien exploration it had. Felt like you really didn't know what to expect when a door opened. I can still recall watching this in the late 70s as a child. Those bouncing balls were the coolest thing I had ever seen ... so strange. It was one of the few crystal clear memories I had when I finally viewed the DVDs as an adult again. I remember thinking as a child how cool it was that he drew the third planet from the sun and the aliens knew where we were from. Of course, watching these as an adult we can see all the incongruities, but still, remembering the sense of awe when I was younger is like having one of mom's old chocolate chip cookies.
