The Man from Earth

For those who like their science fiction pure be sure to hunt down this obscure little number. Written by Jerome Bixby of STAR TREK and THE TWILIGHT ZONE fame this is one which will have your head going around in circles for days to come after watching it. The premise is simple yet quite a retirement party a teacher confesses to being a cave man who has lived for thousands of years. What follows is akin to the fine type of stage play you would expect from David Mamet or Samuel Beckett. Fine ensemble cast includes Tony Todd, Jason Billingsley and even William Katt who manages to be just as obnoxious as ever even after all of these years.
