Storyline

Commander Douglas Stansfield is selected to be the first astronaut to go on a deep space mission. He will be away for 40 years but for much of that, he will be in stasis and on his return he will hardly have aged. Stansfield is a seemingly ideal candidate as he is single and has no close family. Prior to his departure however, he meets the beautiful Sandra Horn and they fall very much in love. Forty years later, Stansfield returns but it seems he and Sandra had their own way of dealing with the 40 years since they last saw each other. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Narrator: [Opening Narration] It may be said with a degree of assurance that not everything that meets the eye is as it appears. Case in point: the scene you're watching. This is not a hospital, not a morgue, not a mausoleum, not an undertaker's parlor of the future. What it is is the belly of a spaceship. It is en route to another planetary system an incredible distance from the Earth. This is the crux of our story, a flight into space. It is also the story of the things that might happen to human beings...

What I did for love
8 June 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Robert Lansing and Mariette Hartley star in what was The Twilight Zone's most romantic episode. This one was unbelievably poignant with the ironic ending.

As is usual science fiction never gets it quite right in terms of time in the future. It's 1987 and a long range space probe is being sent to the nearest solar system in space. Lansing is told by project head George MacReady that he will be put in suspended animation, cryogenically frozen for the trip there and back. As he's a man without attachments he's perfect for the mission.

Except that between that moment and the actual blastoff he meets another scientist Mariette Hartley and they do form an attachment. Let's say it changes everything for both.

Incredibly beautiful script and a story for the romantics everywhere.
