Nerdy and far from good
Wow, this episode was a joke. Far from my favorite, far from how I think of the average Twilight episodes since by in large, I really enjoy the Twilight zone. But I did not enjoy this one, except for a few spots where I just laughed at the lunacy of those moments. Wally Cox here was like one of the biggest nerds I've ever seen in an older style show. He really looked like a nerd and he really acted like a nerd. He was that science geek type who worked at an electronics lab. His department was with a talking space data machine. He asks out Milly (Ann Randolf), a beauty who works at his company, and she actually said yes. On the date at his apartment with Milly, she wanted to dance and get romantic and that dork just sat there with his science book opened saying "I was wanted us to keep comparing notes on the neutron status data". I might have not quoted those last three words 100% correctly but who cares? This guy had a real cutie advancing on him and this was how he acts? Then when they start dancing he starts complaining about the sores on his feet? Then he opens the champaign bottle with the end of the bottle pointed three inches from Milly's face and doesn't expect the champaign to spray on her? I did not feel sorry for that nerd when Milly then stormed out, and then the next night reject Wally and shoo him away to spend the evening advancing herself onto a much cooler, more appealing guy. I really wondered what Milly saw in Wally in the first place. Maybe because she thought he'd be such an intelligent nerd, that if she went out with him, he'd make her a lot of money. As soon as she found out he wasn't so smart, look how fast she ditched him to be with a cooler, better looking guy. The rest of the episode delt with Wally talking to the machine asking it about all this technical space data and the machine just wanting to talk to Wally about his love life. An added little running joke about how Wally kept running into the same girl in the hallway giving her each of the things (candy, flowers, etc.) that were rejected from Milly when he tried giving them to her. Then the hallway girl would just shrug, form a weak smile, not say anything and keep walking. The end result in this episode with Wally and the machine was also quite ridiculous.
