A Great Lesson On How Power Can Affect A Person

Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorite TZ episodes of all-time. It's a neat little sci-fi twist on an age-old moral about how power can get to your head. (Even JUST A LITTLE BIT of it).

Another great episode

I loved the progression of this episode. It's a perfect allegory/cautionary tale for authority and aging parenthood.

This is one I remember from my youth!

I remember watching this show when it first came out in black and white. A group of people crashed on a barren world and have waited 30 years a rescue ship. This is about how the captain felt when the ship arrives.
Great performance.

It's hard to be king...

I've read other stories and novels with the same core theme, and it's always effective. Dethroning a king is never easy - on the king.

Here all the things needed to make a classic T Z episode are present. Story, setting, acting, sound effects are all top notch. Recommended.
