Our educational jaunt continues, as we learn about the phrase, “check mate”, discover that deserts are hot, and find that, shockingly, people need water to live!
It’s a great pity that this story doesn’t survive. If it did, I think it would be very well-regarded. This episode in particular stands out due to clear stakes (no water means dying time), and a sandstorm scene with some extremely good sound design.
It’s late and I’m tired so I don’t have too much more to say about this episode, save that I liked it, and that the reconstruction format is getting easier to tolerate.
Next time: “The Cave of Five Hundred Eyes”
