Alternate Versions

To sell the pilot movie overseas as a theatrical feature, a few brief insert shots of topless actresses during the "revelry" scene near the end were shot and added to that version, which was a fairly common practice when U.S. television product was being considered for foreign cinema release. It is this "European cut" that has aired in recent years on U.S. cable movie channels (like Fox Movie Channel). See more »

A Fine Thriller
3 April 2000 | by captnemoSee all my reviews

This would have made an excellent television series. Robert Culp has rarely been better as Sebastian, a psychic sleuth and expert on the occult. He takes on a case that threatens the world. Not bad for your introduction. An excellent Gene Roddenberry creation. I give it a "7" out of "10."
