The fact that this man passed away from male breast cancer-an extremely rare disease- suggests a form of hormone or chemical imbalance that unavoidably warped and twisted his ability to think and reason by any sort of normal standard.  This DOES NOT, in ANY way, excuse his criminal behavior, but it does help to explain it.  His death was a blessing, not only to him, but to the community which had suffered at his hands.

Compared to today's technology, this film seems primitive, but the basic principles remain sound.  Also, nowadays, the subject of "weather control" is almost a forbidden subject, due to long-range environmental concerns.

The designation "Manslaughter in the first degree" would most likely be known as "voluntary manslaughter" today.  While the law regarding murder and manslaughter varies somewhat from one state to another, in general the charges range from capital or aggravated murder to premeditated murder to second degree murder to voluntary manslaughter to involuntary manslaughter, depending on the circumstances involved, and the laws of the state in which the crime occurred.  In this case, Martha, undoubtedly in fear of her life, felt compelled to take the terrible step of ending the life of the man she was married to.  Today, the laws are such that a claim of self-defense might well be entertained by the courts in a case such as this.  The good part of this tragic story was that she WAS finally pardoned, and had a chance to start a new life--a life that was hopefully peaceful, free from domestic strife, and noteworthy in that it did point out the need for separate facilities for women prisoners, thereby initiating a much-needed penal reform throughout the United States, as well as in Missouri.

The chain reaction that sent XL5 hurtling past the speed of light was most likely caused by an undetected and unknown impurity in the nuclear fuel which would have been loaded into the Nutomic reactor prior to XL5's departure from Earth.  Once the ship returned safely to Space City, it undoubtedly would have been subject to an intense examination before repairs were made.

The sound track is slightly out of sync with the video, especially when people are talking on camera.  Can this be fixed?

Why did you darken the screen the way you did?  This makes the film VERY hard to see, especially if you have eye problems as I do!  PLEASE fix this and re-post!

Although your title matches the episode, the description does not, to say the least!  Can you please correct this?  Thanks!

It's reassuring to note that, despite Commander Zero's blustering exterior, he cares very deeply indeed about the space crews under his command.  The urgency in his voice when he begins giving orders for XL5's rescue is proof of this!

The "poisonous smoke" referred to here seems to have been some sort of nerve gas.  In the case of the underwater cavern, the aquaphibian had to use a great deal more gas than he might have expected, because of the much larger space than the surface dwellings he had attacked earlier.  Nevertheless this gave Steve and Venus the time they needed to rescue the two survivors and take care of the aquaphibian--hopefully once and for all!

Much as I hate to say this, the Finale comes across to me as being rushed--it's simply too fast.  The late Dr. John Obetz was as fine an interpreter of the Finale as I have ever heard, and he NEVER played it this fast!  Also, the sound quality, even given YouTube's limitations, is woefully lacking in the bass registers.  I respectfully suggest that Mr. Potts rethink his style of performance as far as this piece is concerned.

I remember the late Dr. Keith Chapman playing this piece on the Wanamaker at almost this same tempo.  Marvelous!
