In this episode of The Evil Touch (1973-1974), it is the year 2020 and the Presidential Election in America is in full swing. David Arlington Zack (James Daly) is the pro-science candidate, a "scientific genius" who promises an era of "unprecedented prosperity."
He decides to send back a "humanoid" called Tom Leeds, whom all human women find irresistible, using a time machine, to the year 1972. That was the year when Day's mother and father met, and fell in love. Altering time, Leeds will make Day's mother fall in love with him instead, thus erasing Day -- and the threat to Zack's political ambitions -- from history.
That installment, of course, is "Campaign '20," a "far future" episode of The Evil Touch, and the only one in a different time period (other than 1972-1973, in other words).
Here, however, the android does not use violent means to undertake his scheme of time alteration. Instead, all human women are susceptible to Tom Leed's charms, and he is the world's greatest lover. Therefore, he uses human emotions against humans, to bring about the "dark fate" his masters which to see enacted.
Instead, we are still bogged down in the same issues that riled us in the 1970's: civil rights, the size of our government, religious differences, and impeachment.
The more things change, the more things stay the same, I suppose. Zack is like our current president in at least one way: he is a raging egotist more concerned with his own self-glorification than in helping the people achieve the American dream.
