  • A clever title goes here!

    One of the best episodes of the show's second season. A little preachy, but, the performances by Burgess Meredith and Fritz Weaver, makes this a moot point. What I love is the fact that Romney Wordsworth (Meredith) wins in the end when the Chancellor (Weaver) gets his comeupance and considered obsolete. Kudos also to director Elliott Silverstein, who recounted that the episode's editor didn't want to go along with his vision of the final scene, and what ended up on the screen was a compromise.
