Entertaining TV movie with some interesting ideas
21 August 2013 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

A race car driver suddenly develops a strange psychic ability to detect impending danger. He has a vision involving a woman in peril; a parapsychologist implores him to find her and try to avert whatever danger she is in. He winds up at an English manor house – the one he saw in his vision – where he encounters the woman and a host of other untrustworthy characters.

Leonard Nimoy seems to have been enjoying himself in the title role of this entertaining TV movie. Like others have said, it does have the whiff of a pilot for a TV series about it. It would be quite easy to imagine a male/female psychic/parapsychologist team going around and saving innocent people from bad guys every week. But alas no, there was no series of this. However, that doesn't change the fact that Baffled! is a fair amount of fun. It has a pretty compelling mystery plot to it that combines ESP with the occult. The acting from everyone is good while the production values have that solid made for TV cosiness about them. If I had to make a complaint, it would be a minor one, but it would be that despite the great build it has a slightly overly silly denouncement that would not have looked out of place in a Scooby Doo cartoon. But, no matter, this one is still a lot of fun.
