Not All That Great!
10 August 2013 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I have a sincere belief that when we rank something high, it should be able to hold its own against similar presentations in contemporary times. I'm not talking about technology. That wouldn't be fair. I understand that this was probably a bit bold for its time, but one doesn't automatically get an A for effort. This episode is dull. It's dull for two reasons. First of all, the acting is almost laughable. The guys delivering their silly lines and running back and forth between a TV set and a camera. But what is worse is what's going on at the apartment. The writing is plodding and endless. Let's try to establish a little bit of rhythm. The people are stiff because they have nothing to say. It was kind of neat to see a young Rod Steiger, but all he could do was try to comfort the hysterical abused wife. All they have her do is whine and scream and emote. Let's not get carried away with the "War of the Worlds" comparisons. Listen to those broadcasts and see how real actors give us a sense of terror.
