  • Programming a computer to kill is a tricky business if the machine is too intelligent...

    8.0
    A rather neat idea, if far from original - killer computers seem to have been with us as long as the machines themselves have been. But this episode benefits from realistic characterization and solid acting - the people in it aren't stereotypes (apart from Aubrey Morris's shamelessly overacted private eye) but believably fallible. Barbara Bel Geddes is just fine as a highly intelligent, middle-aged woman with no glamour at all who may have outsmarted her murderous husband or who may have been outsmarted herself by an unexpected admirer. Jack Hedley is surprisingly low-billed in the second-biggest role as an insurance investigator whose unscrupulousness is all the more believable for being largely unremarked by the others in the story.moreless
  • From Inga With Hate

    4.0
    Okay, no doubt this one would've played a bit better back when computers were still numbered amongst the exotica of contemporary life. When they were explaining such things as the ID cards I was thinking, "Yeah, so what?" Then realized that that sort of thing was indeed all news to the audience for which it was intended. Anyway, an extremely hokey idea (and even pretty hoary back then; I have only to think of the Twilight Zone with Wally Cox). A bit silly that the series was called Journey To the Unknown, when you could see that thing coming a mile off.moreless
