Jack's Review
You are not of the body. You will be absorbed. It is the will of Landru. This is another classic episode. It is fun to see how the writers overcame special effect and budget constraints by using different existing props and sets. Here we also have our first reference of the Prime Directive. This is another episode that reuses the Mayberry set from Andy Griffith. On a personal note, I went to visit my Dad shortly after he watched this episode. He looked at me and said, "greetings, friend. Are you here for festival?" when I said no, he shouted, "you are not of the body!" at me. It was a riot.
