Publisher's Summary

Experience one of television’s greatest science-fiction series, The Twilight Zone™ - fully dramatized for AUDIO! Featuring a full cast, music and sound effects, and today’s biggest celebrities in modern radio dramatizations.

The Lateness of the Hour, starring Jane Seymour and James Keach: Dr. Loren and his wife live in a beautiful home with their daughter, and are waited upon hand and foot by robots. But daughter Jana is beginning to think her parent's need for robot help is turning their brains to silt, and bodies to mud. She demands of her father to get rid of the robots, or else she will leave the family forever. Unhappy, but caring for his daughter's concerns, Dr. Loren does as asked.

Please note: spoilers ahead.

Later on, when Jana tells her parents she will meet a beau and have children of her own soon, her parents look unhappy, but will not tell her why. As she puts the pieces together, she looks for pictures of herself from younger years, but finds none. The revelation comes, and she collapses: Jana herself is a robot. Her father knows life cannot continue as it has, so he reprograms his robot daughter to be a maid.

Great episode. Don't read the summary.

At least not the post spoiler warning part. The summary is not just a summary - it tells the whole story. Good of Audible to at least insert a spoiler warning. Too many of these T Z episodes has had major spoilers in the summaries.

So, about the episode. Great creepy story. Stellar voice acting from all the actors. Not much in the way of sound effects needed, but the few that are heard are effective for the story and perfectly done. Recommended
