  • worse than death

    9.0

    This episode demonstrates graphically that there are indeed worse things than death. Imagine having to go through a battle campaign with a "gift" such as that of the main character here; at some point it would have to seem a relief to see your face light up in the mirror as well. The moment where the guy says "War stinks" (as he's going through the dead man's mementos) in one of my favorites from the series. Also a host of familiar faces in this one: Dick York (his 2nd TZ), Barney Phillips, Paul Mazursky and even Warren Oates in a cool cameo toward the end.
