The prehistoric cave movies were more interesting than the episode itself
Stranded astronauts Mac (Frank Aletter) and Hector (Jack Mullaney) successfully lift off in their space capsule and deem it ready to leave the next morning. (Why wouldn't they leave right then and there?) They feel no one will believe that they flew back in time to the prehistoric age. They use their motion camera to film a dinosaur and the cave people, then return to their cave to review it. Boss (Cliff Norton) and Clon (Mike Mazurki) see "they've captured their spirits" and imprison them. Shad (Imogene Coca) easily pokes through the back of the rock wall (really?) and knocks out Clon, allowing the men to escape. They forget the film and are captured again while returning for it. Can the video be the answer when "the painted people" attack? The dialogue, especially from Hector, is putrid in this episode, even allowing for the absurdity of the series. The plot is equally uninspiring, and any attempt at comedy is lost as a result. This is certainly the worst episode in the series to this point in my evaluation.
