Storyline

Astronaut Adam Cook crash lands on an Earth-like planet several light-years from Earth. His ship is badly damaged and likely beyond repair. He manages to contact his home base but they have little encouragement for him. They don't have a replacement spacecraft to rescue him and the security situation is such that they may soon be at war. Cook readies himself to make a home on his new world when he discovers another inhabitant, a human-like female from another world. As they learn to communicate, he learns her name is Eve Norda and together set off to begin a new life. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Cook mentions that's he's 4.3 light-years from his home base, but when he talks on his radio, the replies to him are instantaneous. In reality, his message would take 4.3 years to reach the base and another 4.3 years for the reply to reach him - a total of almost 9 years per message. See more »

Ends with a twist but I'm not giving it away.
29 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This is the first review here without any reference to the twist in the tale. The ending is usually the talking point. I would like to think there's someone out there who doesn't know it. If such a person exists then this review is submitted for your approval.

There are some remarkable likenesses about this one to an earlier entry (right down to the eye shadow), but I wont elaborate so as not to give anything away.

Yet another story about the world facing obliteration from nuclear war. Cook (Richard Basehart) is an astronaut crash landing on a planet light-years away. If there is war back home then he is surely stuck there.

One big plus is an actor of Basehart's caliber to deliver the pessimistic dialogue. There are shades of Taylor from 'Planet of the Apes' (another Serling written astronaut) in Cook's lonely reports to whatever might be left of the apocalyptic world he has left. The anthropological observation that fear is 'a universal trait' is a comment on how close to destruction the world was in the early 60's.

Loneliness, that often revisited Serling theme, rears it's head once again. The show began with 'Where Is Everybody' and was soon to disappear into a timeless and universal place in the hearts of those who love a great story well told.

Now watch this entry and be sure to read more reviews after.
