Tales Of Tomorrow: The Crystal Egg
the show's opening, with the electrodes and the lightning and the retro-style title. So reminiscent of what I grew up watching in rerun and seeing in the comics of my youth as syndicated sci-fi shows always showed on TV and outlandish science fiction comics populated the news stands.
With regards to H.G. Wells, viewers familiar with Wells and War Of The Worlds
may go as far as to see The Crystal Egg as an artifact possibly left behind by the alien invaders, one of great power that many are vying for, in that typical cloak-and-dagger Cold War theme that plays out as the episode comes to it's predictable end.
Overall, not a great story, but your typical classic cautionary tale of cloak-and-dagger intrigue with some good old science fiction thrown in for good measure. Most of all, it's a great look back on TV it's it's early days, and the worlds of wonder it took us to.
