This review contains spoilers.
1.11 Skinny Dipper
Due to the writing credits on this story, I’d anticipated that it would be good, but it actually exceeded those expectations in most respects.
But before I talk about what I liked, I’ll warn you that I’m also going to discuss the identity of ‘Adam’. So if you’ve not seen this episode, I’d watch it before reading on.
Skinny Dipper dovetails directly into the final events of The Man In The Killer Suit when Henry is abducted by ‘Adam’ in yellow cab. Actually, it goes back a little to explain how he got the cab, and what unfortunate things happened to the driver. Adam shoots himself in the head, and disappears, and Henry drowns in the cab, to reappear elsewhere in the same river. »
The story follows famed social psychologist Stanley Milgram. Milgram designed the controversial Obedience Experiments at Yale University, which observed the responses of ordinary people who believed they were sending harmful electrical shocks to an affable stranger.
Lutz will play "Star Trek" actor William Shatner, who portrayed Milgram in a 1970s TV movie. Yelchin plays Rensaleer, a man who resents authority. Manning plays Mrs. Lowe, a test subject who is distressed by the process and pushes back.
