Transmissions From The Twilight Zone

Episode 25: 'People Are Alike All Over'. A two man US rocket crash lands on Mars. Before the Captain dies from his wounds, he tells the more cynical Conrad that he shouldn't worry about the intentions of the Martians as, ultimately, 'people are alike all over'. True to his words, the Martians are charming, helpful people who treat the wary Conrad with every courtesy, even adapting his living quarters to perfectly resemble an Earth apartment. Conrad overcomes his suspicions and settles in, and even begins to think of a future with the beautiful Teenya. Then, one day, it occurs to him that his new home is missing something...

Starring Roddy McDowall, of course, an actor who could show every single thought on his face. I miss him.

Happy 2011, by the way, and the best of luck in the coming year.


  1. Yeah, we've all been there, haven't we.

    Mars, I mean.

  2. Best thing about new years is the Twilightzone marathon.
