      Third Planet from the Sun is an episode of the Twilight Zone from the first season of the original series. It is a cautionary tale.

      It is about nuclear war, and the end of the world.

      The story revolves around a family.

      The father works for the government, and is privy to


      a piece of information that the general public does not know- war is about to begin, and the human race is unlikely to survive it.

      He goes home to spend one last night with his family- his wife and teenage daughter.

      He reveals that he has a plan to take his family ...


      • and run.

        Since there is nowhere on earth to run, he plans to go into space.

        But he is soon involved in a cat and mouse game with a government official who wants to thwart his plans.

        The story is interesting, but not terribly original.

        Despite the episode’s twist ending, I

        felt that it was one of the poorer Twilight Zone episodes.

        I think the producers of the show sacrificed entertainment value for the teaching of a lesson.

        However, the cold war was at its peak when the show was made, so you can see why the producers felt the lesson was so important.
