Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.

After resigning, a secret agent is abducted and taken to what looks like an idyllic village, but is really a bizarre prison. His warders demand information. He gives them nothing, but only tries to escape.
*Spoiler/plot- TNOT Simian Terror, 68. Our agents uncover a bizarre revenge plot upon a US senator and his family involving inhuman medical experiments.
*Special Stars- Robert Conrad, Ross Martin, Dabbs Greer, John Abbott, Richard Kiel.
*Theme- Family matters should be handled by family communication.
*Trivia/location/goofs- Air date 2-16-68. Takes place in Kansas. Famous TV faces of Dabbs Greer, John Abbott, Richard Kiel are featured in this episode. Richard Kiel gets to really act with lines and emotions instead of being just a mindless murder henchman as in most films. I guess the pay is the same, though. To those who thoroughly enjoy character actors, Dabbs Greer is an icon of that performer. Mr. Conrad's short stature/height for a leading man (5'7") was compensated for with shoe 'lifts' in his boots, casting short stunt people, and short leading ladies. In fact his show was known for needing so many short stature love-interest roles for women among females actresses, it became a staple for actresses in Hollywood.
*Emotion- I was not impressed by the Sherlock Holmesian 'mysterious animal murderer' scenario plot line. The guest star lead villain's performance is somewhat forgettable due to it's late arrival in the episode.....many time villain roles fail to deliver enough 'gravitas' to balance with the strong leads of Conrad and Martin. The inclusion of gorilla spiced-up the drama. This is not vintage W3.
