Storyline

In a far corner of the universe, a spaceship with three astronauts lands on a planet with gravity and air conditions virtually identical to that on Earth. Their surroundings appear as Earth did 200 years ago but the planet has two suns so they're fairly certain they didn't somehow end up back home. People however seem to be frozen in time. They eventually stumble upon Jeremy Wickwire, who is the caretaker for the locale. His explanation of what he is and where they are defies belief but in the end, he does grant them their wish.

Quotes

Narrator: [Closing Narration] Kirby, Webber, and Meyers, three men lost. They shared a common wish, a simple one, really - they wanted to be aboard their ship, headed for home. And Fate, a laughing Fate, a practical jokester with a smile that stretched across the stars, saw to it that they got their wish, with just one reservation: the wish came true, but only in the Twilight Zone.

The Wrong Planet
25 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Jeff Morrow, Kevin Hagen, and Don Dubbins play three Earth astronauts who are forced to land on a mysterious planet after their ship runs into trouble, who discover human-looking inhabitants that are strangely motionless. One man does appear to them, a self-proclaimed caretaker named Jeremy Wickwire(played by Cecil Kellaway) who explains that the place is really a cemetery named Happy Glades, where people fulfill their greatest wish after death, and that the three astronauts are in for a most unpleasant surprise... Kellaway's lively performance elevates this otherwise ordinary sci-fi tale, which still has an air of both amusement and melancholy.
