Pretty lame...
2 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Jack Carter stars in this very poor episode of "Tales of Tomorrow". Now I am NOT saying it was a bad show, but even a good one occasionally misses the mark and clearly "The Search for the Flying Saucer" is one of them.

It begins with Carter arriving in a teeny, tiny town out west. At first, folks think he's a reporter and he does nothing to give them any other impression, he's actually an ex-Air Force officer who has spent his recent years traveling about the country trying to investigate UFO reports. It seems he saw one himself and was pushed out of the service because he's insisted they are real.

While the setup isn't bad, the film REALLY bogs down soon afterwords because it introduces the dumbest romance in TV history. Although Carter just arrived, he and a 'local' fall INSTANTLY in love and are filled with gooey, mushy romance--and there is no discernible reason whatsoever for this to occur--especially so quickly. Now there IS a twist to it--but it doesn't at all save the show. The bottom line is that it's exceptionally poorly written and kind of dumb.
