Another ripping episode that utilises the best aspect that the Twilight Zone can offer. And as good as the acting is, it’s the writing that brings it to the fore perfectly.
Starting off the episode in the hospital room of Bill Gart and being visited by his comrade Clegg Forbes, both of whom have just returned from piloting an experimental spaceship is perfect. Everything seems normal, until Clegg insists that there was three of them in the ship, and now the whole world – including Bill – is certain that there was only two. From here everything looks as though Clegg has lost his mind, before we go back to the previous day and see what happened while Bill was stuck in his hospital room.
Rod Taylor is brilliant as Clegg, as he tries to work out what is happening to him or around him. The episode progresses as one would expect, and ends in the same perfect way, leaving the explained and unexplained to lie in those vast reaches of the Twilight Zone as they should. Entirely entertaining.
Rating: There were THREE of us dammit!! 5/5
