Trivia

Much of the music used in this episode was taken directly from the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951). This really isn't surprising since both were produced by 20th Century Fox. See more »

Goofs

When backing away from the robot, Patterson brushes against large metal pipes and valves which wobble. See more »

In hindsight, not one of Dr. Brand's better inventions!
4 October 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

The episode begins with some stock footage of a Mercury-style capsule landing in the ocean. It was rather grainy and not all that well suited for the show...but hey, it was cheap. Dr. Brand (Michael Constantine) is aboard the Seaview in order to retrieve the astronaut from the capsule. The crew is surprised to see that the spaceman is no man at all but a robot. Brand's contention is that the machine can learn anything a man can...but with no risk of life. His satisfaction, however, is short-lived as the robot inexplicably goes wonky and switches to 'kill everyone aboard the ship' mode!

This is an incredibly simple episode. Why a robot would switch to crush, kill, destroy is never really explained...and it did seem silly. Overall, a rather weak but watchable episode.
