MY FAVORITE MARTIAN: Man Or Amoeba

Starring Ray Walston, Bill Bixby
Guest Stars:  Pamela Britton, Ann Marshall, John Fiedler, Betsy Jones-Moreland
Directed by Alan Rafkin
(actor & director credits courtesy IMDB.com)

Martin assists Angela with a school assignment, but when she fails it because of his views of life on Mars, he tries to set things right.

An entertaining enough episode, although without much depth, but all the actors seem to be having a good time, as did I.  In the guest cast, Fiedler is better known for his memorable guest spot on Star Trek's "Wolf In The Fold" episode, and Jones-Moreland for a number of films she made for Roger Corman.  Not one of the best, but an amiable evening's entertainment.
