  • A man find himself alone with his bomber plane in a desert after a crash and wonders where his crew disappeared

    5.0
    Unfortunately one of the weakest episodes in the show...

    It starts nowhere and there is little to go on from there, the acting is mediocre and the scifi element comes like an afterthought to justify the story.

    There is very little to say about the storyline... a man has visual hallucinations as he wanders around a desert, seemingly alone after a bombing mission during WWII... The setup is weak and the "reveal" is even weaker. I won't go into details so as not to spoil it but it is unoriginal even at the time, with the first season already in the can.

    It definitely has the look of a "torn from the headlines" story with an extra micro "unexplained" element added just for show...

    Disappointing start for Season 2
