  • A Senatorial investigation into O.B.I.T. reveals dark secrets about those who 'watch' over us.

    Brilliant from beginning to end. A cast of veteran character actors makes the most of a subject that is still topical today. Up till now there was not a lot to brag about this new cutting-edge scifi series. O.B.I.T. was one of the first. The familiar strains of music as it played at key moments of the series started with this episode. The camera angles and closeups are memorable, even haunting. Who could have done it better than Jeff Corey? But the episode is dominated by the OBIT machine itself. And it should be. The OBIT screen will stay in one's mind for a long time. The best scene is when the military man testifies that even he watches he can't NOT watch it. Who among us could resist the temptation?
