      It’s another story about Mars, a planet that science fiction author Ray Bradbury loves to write about. This is the second story within just a few weeks that has a Martian theme and there’s another one within a few weeks forward. From January 1992, the show and episode discussed in this review is The Ray Bradbury Theater: The Earthmen.

      Like a previous story, this is the third expedition to Mars. Like before, they discover the


      planet has breathable air, and as in the previous story, their astronaut attire was orange in color. While the story is nowhere near the primary plot of And the Moon Be Still as Bright, there were all of these similarities in the opening couple of minutes, and I couldn’t help but see the connections.

      David Birney stars as Captain Jonathan Williams, who takes part of his expedition crew with him as they explore the planet. They ...


      • come across a home and a Martian woman. Apparently, these human like Martian uses telepathy and speaks English in a stereotypical manner with staccato beats.

        What struck me was a line by the lady Martian where she says something like it’s the illusion of the hour and the delusion of the day. That stood out in my mind, but it’s not until the end that it really makes sense.

        I liked the peculiarity of the Martian names.

        Mr. Aaa, Mr. Ttt, Mr. Iii, etc. That was like a touch of humor. However, it’s not a humorous show. There’s a lot of confusion until the last scene, and that’s when much of it makes sense.

        This is a story that I really don’t have any interest in seeing again. I don’t even really see the point in the tale. It’s just a story, and not a very pleasant one at that.
