some new stuff --back then.
20 November 2017 | by dlynch843See all my reviews

This second episode had those strange infra-red rifles making a sound I'd never heard before back in 1964. And to add to this new strangeness, Donner filmed these black-suited guys in barely perceived slow-motion. So in both sound and sight, it made TMFU a show with a difference. These rifles appeared later to great comic/action affect in 'The Never-Never Affair'. By then, TMFU was on its way to becoming a TV phenomenon.
