Storyline

Convicted criminal James Corry has been place in a very peculiar form of solitary confinement - he's alone on an asteroid 9 million miles from Earth. He's been there four and a half years now and is looking forward to the return of the supply ship and the goods it may have for him. When it arrives, Captain Allenby has something of a surprise for him: a female robot companion by the name of Alicia. She is human-like in every way but Corry can't but see her as a machine. He comes around however but they won't live happily ever after. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

James A. Corry: Alicia and I'll climb into that ship of yours, and we'll - we'll look out the port, and we'll give it all a big kiss goodbye.
Adams: Who, Corry?
Captain Allenby: Oh, my dear God, I forgot her.
Adams: He's out of his mind. Who's Alicia?
Captain Allenby: A robot.
James A. Corry: She's a woman.
Captain Allenby: Corry, she's a robot.
James A. Corry: She's a woman! She's gentle and kind. Allenby, she kept me alive. Why, if it wasn't for her, I'd have been finished. I'd have given up.

She Doesn't Even Need a Wedding Ring
30 June 2006 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

One of the very best of the series. Convicted criminal Jack Warden is banished to outlying asteroid, where he lives alone on barren plain (Death Valley) in a rickety corrugated shack (not a wise choice of hot weather building materials). Needless to say, he's going slowly nutzoid. Supply ship commander (Dehner) takes pity and smuggles a female android to him for company.

Outstanding script treats Warden's predicament in unusually intelligent, thoughtful manner, providing at the same time some insight into ordinary human frailties. Android gimmick supplements theme rather than defining it. Solid performances, especially Warden's depiction of a man at the end of his rope, (note presence of uncredited Ted Cassidy as crewman, practicing the obnoxious personality that would later flower as Ted Baxter on "Mary Tyler Moore Show"). Good location sites help create sense of desperate isolation. The shot of the shack pictured against the infernally barren landscape is enough to send you running for the nearest city. Ending is powerfully done with an emotional impact that will likely stay with you.

In my book, this is one of the entries that established the series' reputation and its now classic status.
