Very even.
11 December 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Helen (Jacqueline Scott) kisses her earth returned husband, Major Robert Gaines (Steve Forrest) and things might seem alright, after all, for an instant. Then her eyes tell you that something IS very wrong! It's as though Major Gaines has been made-up in the bedroom as he finds he's a colonel by the rank displayed on his shirt.

Solid and interesting entry, like most TZ way ahead of it's time, though the pace is rather gentle for a modern audience. As with so much of the series, the idea has been used a great many times since. There's a halfway plot twist that you might well guess. The acting is restrained because of the military characters. The picture quality helps to retain the appeal of this nice idea that could have done with a little more powerful delivery.
