  • A megalomaniac genius replaces Admiral Nelson with a cyborg in an effort to destroy the Western world and install a world run by cyborgs.

    This is another great episode, helped tremendously by the casting of Victor Buono (King Tut of Batman) as the deranged genius. One of the biggest complaints about this show is that the episodes start out great but run out of gas and ideas by the third act. Regardless of whether or not you agree with that assessment, this episode is great all the way through. The acting is great from top to bottom. The writing is brilliant- one would expect the 'grunts' to blindly follow orders but they realize the gravity of what they have been ordered to do- some cry, another freaks out. Strip away the plot and you have a drama with a group of men trying to deal with the unfathomable prospect of world destruction, and it is handled very well. There is an episode near the end in which Nelson is doing something that seems to make no sense at all- needless to say, when you discover what he's doing you are going to wonder how you missed it and just say to yourself, brilliant. The set at Buono's lab is great too- no walls, everything is in a black void. And Buono's scooter is sort of like a Roman chariot with a Lay-Z-Boy™. This is a prescient episode which I'm sure plays better today that it did 40 years ago because we know so much more now. Watch it, you'll know what I mean.moreless
