  • Intriguing episode

    The strength of this episode is twofold: the fine performance of Constance Towers as the wife of the clone and the writing. There's a lot to think about with this episode and the concept of cloning would become a big issue decades later. I agree with the other poster who said that the megasoid did not seem scary enough. I also found it laughable that the phones they are using are rotary-dial phones. At one point the year 1986 is mentioned, as a reference to something in the clearly, the writers should've known that if phones have video capabilities in the future, they would probably be button-operated and that dials would be obsolete. Aside from this use of a 1960s telephone, the rest of the story seemed very credible...and hauntingly prophetic.
