It is also interesting that author planktonrules tries to compare Twilight Zone to Star Trek. OK, not the shows really, but the fans. While I'm sure that there are plenty of Twilight Zone fans, it comes no where near the number of Star Trek fans.
It is also interesting to note how he uses Star Trek in his comparison, as three of the main actors in this fine episode, went on to perform in Star Trek episodes and a Star Trek movie.
James Gregory appeared in Star Trek's "Dagger of the Mind", while Rex Holman (Charlie near the beginning) appeared in "Spectre of the Gun" as Morgan Earp and in "Star Trek V: The Final Frontier". And Joanne Linville played the famous female Romulan Commander who tries unsuccessfully to seduce Spock, in the episode "The Enterprise Incident".
