Ihnat was a marvelous actor. If you get a chance, find an episode of the original "Outer Limits," entitled The Inheritors. Ihnat at his low-key, underplayed best.

I can hardly say how much I love this episode. The last time I saw it I cried. Even though the major setpiece at the end is pretty clunky. (I won't give away what it is here. But get this two-part episode on DVD and be prepared to be blown away.)
Thanks for reminding me to rewatch this episode. I don't think I had ever seen it until I got the DVD set, and not again since then. Last night, I watched Part 1 again, and loved it even more. I'll watch Part 2 when I have a chance.

Is it time again for me to request a blu-ray set of The Outer Limits?
I watched Part 2 again last night. It's amazing how its theme is so similar to Roddenberry's vision of the future. Ihnat even has a line about (paraphrasing) " more war, no more poverty, no more disease..." etc.
