Let’s Watch Dean Stockwell (And Leonard Nimoy) In The Twilight Zone!

Why "A Quality Of Mercy" won't make the Boxing Day marathon.

We’d never heard of this third-season episode before, and while it’s based on Rod Serling’s IRL wartime experiences and has a couple of good performances, it’s also eight minutes of concept stretched to twice the length; it’s not very science-fiction-y; and it has…1961 ideas about Asian representation that do not travel well, at all. Oh, and it was filmed in a box truck and accent-coached by the Razzie nominating committee. Other than that, great stuff, no notes.
