  • Genuine rapport

    8.0
    This was the first one of these where (for a time anyway) I actually felt that the rapport between the leads was genuine, in this case between George and McClure, in the scene where they are arguing over what to do about O'Brien. Generally McClure has seemed to me little more than an ambulatory grin, but here he shows a serious, concerned side which should have perhaps been emphasized more in the series.





    The plot of this one is pretty taut and doesn't seem to ramble (as some of these can tend to do). O'Brien is good as well, even though she very carefully avoids the use of contractions throughout. Sue Ane Langdon (the Wife of the Future in that Twilight Zone starring Cliff Robertson btw) provides amusing bits of comic relief as the ditzy receptionist.moreless
