  • A man named Paul Driscoll hates the present day with it's constant threat of nuclear destruction. So Driscoll uses a time machine in an attempt to prevent tragic events in the past. He soon finds that it won't be as easy as he thought.

    This episode has a very good premise and it does have its highlights. One such highlight is the scene where Driscoll has a discussion with one of his fellow boarders about American military policy. As a whole, however, this episode is a disappointment. There are some logic loopholes here. For example, why did Driscoll choose to travel to Hiroshima less than one hour before the bomb was dropped? Even if the Japanese police captain believed him, there would not be enough time to evacuate the city so Driscoll's visit serves no purpose and will accomplish nothing. There are better episodes.
