      The Ray Bradbury Theater: Mars Is Heaven is the opener for the science fiction series fourth year on television. Airing in July 1990, it stars Hal Linden as Captain Black, the leader of the first Earth expedition to Mars. What’s shocking is that Black and his men discover what appears to be a small town, and the small town looks like

      a typical American place.

      In fact, things get even eerier when the astronauts view the town as being just like the towns they grew up in. Even more intriguing, their families are there. This includes the grandparents of one man and Black’s parents and brother, Skip, who is played by Due South’s Paul Gross.

      There are a few ways this story could go,

      • so it remains unpredictable as the half hour moves along. Even as the last gripping moment runs out, you aren’t totally sure of the events. It’s a little bit like if you don’t see it, you can’t know for sure. Thus, it leaves much to the imagination and interpretation of the viewer.

        Linden and Gross provide solid performances and are both

        very watchable. I do believe, however, the show could have been a little brighter in some aspects. There was a nice scene with Black dancing with his mother which added some lightness to the episode.

        Overall, Mars Is Heaven was a good science fiction tale from noted author Bradbury. It will certainly leave you curious, which is often what good sci fi writing does.
