Predictable but good.

George Grizzard stars in this installment of "One Step Beyond". It's set during WWII and Grizzard plays Harris--a pharmacist's mate in the Navy who is a drunk. His drinking got him thrown in a makeshift brig and he's been drinking ever since his brother was killed in the war--and Harris blames himself for this.

During the course of the show, the Captain (Whit Bissell) is severely injured and will die unless someone does surgery on him. However, there is no doctor (perhaps he was also killed in the attack on the ship) and Harris is the closest thing they've got to a doctor. He is a screw-up but the crew has no choice, so they patch him through by radio to a doctor on another ship (Raymond Bailey) and they talk him through the surgery. But, since this is a show about the supernatural, there is naturally going to be a twist. While I predicted this twist early on in the show, it was enjoyable overall. Plus the show was improved by having these very familiar and enjoyable TV actors, as Bissell, Grizzard and Baily are old faces most will remember.
