I love the fact that Serling went to science fiction because he wanted to be able to comment on political issues, but would previously be shut down by the commercial sponsors. Here he could say what he really thought, and nobody could complain because it was about aliens. This episode is fantastic. The HUAC anti-Communist with hunts are such a blight on American history, and particularly Hollywood history. Fascinating that Serling would be so brazen in his criticism of McCarthy.
