A scientist working on a military base becomes intrigued by the strange man next door, whose startling inventions make him wonder where he's really from.
A big improvement over the series' first episode, this is a memorable tale from a science-fiction story by Jack Finney well-adapted to a television budget, and featuring a fine cast, including sci-fi veterans Windsor and Stevens. Although the special effects aren't particularly impressive, they're believable due to the strong teleplay and convincing performances by the actors. This one's a winner.
