This episode was a, dare I say, Cold War thriller. It was not the best written or acted. But looking back at time before the fall of the USSR or the Berlin Wall, this episode's effect would have been more applicable. Stealth paint in a Mystery Theater episode--very ambitious for 1982. 3 stars.

DAVY JOE

I agree with Davy Joe. But the episode was made less enjoyable by the background distractions. Whoever recorded this kept answering his phone and talking through much of the program. Obviously done with the old “microphone in front of the radio speaker trick.” But I got a chuckle from the appetite suppressant commercial at the beginning. What a difference a few decades can make.
