While I wouldn't call this a favourite, I do think it's a good solid episode. The time travel device is nicely used just to put the man where he needs to be so the episode can chew over its message. It does seem very cut and dried, but then there's that scene where the cowboy says that professor Manion should walk in his shoes and live the life he's had to.

I found this to be a great episode,full of black humour and an ending that was highly satisfying.
