I was watching this thinking to myself "if this planet turns out to be Earth, I won't be pleased". That twist has been used so many times now. But, even though it was, I was actually pleasantly surprised that it wasn't just the usual way of doing it.

Very nicely directed episode I thought, some good touches. The silence as the shot slowly zooms towards the door of the spaceship when you know that something is in the cockpit was a nice bit of suspense.

I wonder if Serling took any flack for this one back in the day; suggesting that Adam and Eve were travellers from space and not God's creations.
