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).<br/><br/>9.3 / 10

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.
