THE METEORITE is just a great episode with a terrestrial sci-fiction tilt and features some of the great but lesser known voices from the series in John Beal and Joe Silver. The whole cast is spectacular including the alien, whose first words will scare the wits out of you. Writer Roy Winsor is very deliberate as he carefully unravels the sincere concern and protectiveness of an average American couple for their new visitor. Contrast these values with the cold authority and air of superiority by the agents of government and academia; making this story especially timely in our age of authoritative overreach. Listeners will find great satisfaction in the just desserts of the proto-fascist G-men and the re-installation of the every-day citizen to his place as master through polite but resolute strength and common sense. I give THE METEORITE 4 out of 5 stars - JUROR #4
