I loved this episode, but it made no sense whatsoever! I couldn't follow it past the 2nd sentence of dialog. But it's a delight and I recommend it for everyone. But what a confusing story. You'll love it.

This is a must listen. Mercedes McCambridge is on another level of commitment as an actress. Would have loved it if Himan Brown had let her do the classic 'Sorry Wrong Number'

Captivating episode but at the end I was not sure if the man she killed was an alien or playing a hoax. Listening to these shows makes me think of important people from my past.


I was drawn to this episode to hear Judith Light. She was fine, but Mercedes McCambridge was amazing. Such a well-written episode. I think this is my new favorite.

Very well done episode! Great acting and well written. Recommended listening for everyone.

This episode was far-fetched, sorry. I wonder what hallucinogenic material was being pumped into the studio that had anyone buy into this plot. Like much of the '70s, it is better left undisturbed in its grave.
