He Had No Other Option
6 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode involves choices that would be hard to make. It involves a base where a spacecraft is inadvertently compromised, allowing a plague to take over the base. Anyone in contact with the alien (who is really a kind of interplanetary Typhoid Mary) becomes ill with no hope of survival. It builds pretty good suspense and is brought to a logical conclusion. I'm really interested in how often this series dealt in the bleakest of themes. There are few happy endings or messages of hope. These were all made post World War II, after the A-bomb, and probably fed into the fright register of the average viewer. The acting here is pretty good and the story one that could conceivably happen. In contemporary times people would not have been so quick to delve into the mysteries of the space ship. Apparently, quarantine wasn't an option or a choice.
