Where Can I Get Me One of Them Mind Machines
28 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The bad guys kidnap a famous scientist and take his machine. The machine has the ability to invade the minds of anyone from a great distance and tell them what to do. The fellow who does the kidnapping is a crime boss who is to be testified against in front of a grand jury. Three people that are testifying against him are invaded by the forces of the machine and change their stories. There is a side effect from this invasion of the mind. It ends up killing all three. Now Lois Lane is ready to testify and her colleagues are dead against it. But being strong willed, she isn't having any of this namby pamby hesitation. When Clark/Superman finds out what is going on, he needs to locate the site of the machine, rescue the doctor, and allow Lois to testify without imminent danger. Kent goes up in a plane with the kidnapped doctor's assistant and the radar reveals their position. How does he get Superman into the act? That's the question. The solution is novel. The had part for me was the fact that such a machine would even be possible. But, then, it's just an old TV show.
