This freaky episode paired Matheson with one of the Twilight Zone
's best actors, Jack Klugman
, who costars as part of the spaceship crew that lands on a planet and finds a ship that looks just like theirs that has crashed—with a dead crew inside that looks just like them. Are they really dead? Are aliens fucking with them? They argue, move through time and space, leave, return, leave again. It's a disturbing story of a man who won't accept his own mortality, and perhaps the most fitting one to watch upon hearing that Matheson has died—not because he wasn't at peace with dying (I wouldn't know!), but because he could grapple with it so movingly and intelligently in his writing. RIP.
