  • robots not believable.

    7.0
    i suppose the plot of this episode is okay (it kind of dawdles)but the robots are so obviously faked, there is just no way anyone would believe this. show a human hand from a distance, then a closeup of a fake hand? i get that there is some suspension of belief in this series (eg paris being asian in at least two episodes and some of the masks) but this is too much.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • How does Gemini know the speech he's supposed to give at the end? It's a speech that was created by the IMF team and "performed" for Kamirov. But Gemini wasn't there and never heard it, and there's no time indicated where they could have told him what it was. So how does he recite it word-perfect to match what Kamirov heard earlier?

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Kamirov: You will do it.
      Jim: No.
      Kamirov: Well, Mr Lambert, I can't force you, but I can kill you. If you consider that a choice, go ahead and think it over.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Leonard Nimoy plays no less than five roles in this episode: Paris, the late Premier, Gemini, the robot, and Silensky.

    • Thanks to the work of Bob Dawn, the cosmetics man, Leonard Nimoy does the first "face pulloff" that is actually accomplished with make-up and a mask rather than a camera cutaway.
