Stingray season 2 episode 3: Playback
episode number: season 2, episode 3 (1987)
viewing setting: home DVD, 3/10/13
episode synopsis: After an isolation experiment results in five deaths, Ray participates in a re-creation of the experiment, in the hopes that he can figure out what went wrong.
impressions: This was like a mystery: something caused this one guy to go crazy and kill the other five. What was it? And will the second crew survive the process of finding out? There was a bit of claustrophobia here, and also paranoia. Interesting premise.
notable guest stars: Evan Kim (who played the English-speaking caveman in Caveman) was a scientist here.
cool actions and tactics: In addition to taking charge of the situation more than once, Ray demonstrates some good hand-to-hand fighting skills.
commander: "It's a long shot."
Ray: "I've shot from further away."
