THE ENEMY WITHIN

ORIGINAL AIRDATE: OCTOBER 6, 1966

THE PLOT:

While on a specimen collecting mission on a new planet. A magnet dust causes a strange malfuction in the transporter, it splits the person into the good and bad.

Now there are two dogs specimens and two James. The only change is to repair the transporter, but without his bad side James has trouble making important decisions.

THE OPINION:

A good episode, full of emotion and heart. I liked the little monster, he was a cute dog monster. There are two things I like to address though. One, when the bad Jim tries to rape Janice Rand. She scratches him, a couple of shots the scratches were on the wrong side of his face. Minor yes, but note worthy and two. I think William was a tad over the top on the evil. Just a pinch.
