Actually, it was Ted KNIGHT, not Ted CASSIDY, who played the uncredited obnoxious crew member. The very tall (6'9") Mr. Cassidy is probably best remembered for playing butler Lurch on 'The Addams Family.' Ted Knight, of course, is the actor who played anchorman Ted Baxter on 'Mary Tyler Moore.'
Having said that, there is no disputing that this was one of the very best episodes (tied with 'Midnight Sun' as my personal favorite) of the Twilight Zone series. No small achievement, considering the number of gems presented. Unfortunately, in order to make room for more commercials than when it was originally presented on CBS, Sci-Fi Channel has cut one crucial scene. In it, one night Corry and Alicia are gazing at the stars, with Corry explaining which star is which, etc., and, well, 'cuddling.' Not just romantic, but touching, the scene adds even more emotional power to this compelling episode. You MAY have a chance to see the uncut version when Sci-Fi Channel has one of its Twilight Zone Marathons. Look for it again at 4:00 a.m. EDT, Sunday July 5, 2009.
