Harold Stern has an extremely rare blood type--so rare, in fact, that the act of giving blood causes him to become aware of events in the recipient's life that have not happened yet. One day he is called upon to give blood to save the life of a dying young girl, and he doesn't like what he sees in store for her. Written by frankfob2@yahoo.com

Did You Know?


After getting a role in this, Suzanne Pleshette was asked if she could swim, because her character did. Pleshette was actually a very good swimmer, but she said that she couldn't so the production would have to give a job to a double to do the scene. When the double showed up, she told Pleshette that she couldn't swim. Pleshette told her not to worry about it, and then proceeded to do the swimming scene, doubling her own double. See more »

Blood Donor
14 April 2015 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

First episode of the second season stars veteran actor Norman Lloyd as Harold Stern, a frequent blood donor whose services are especially in demand because of his rare blood type, which is now desperately needed to save the life of a teenage girl(played by Suzanne Pleshette) Despite the pleading of a police Lt.(played by David White) Harold is reluctant to donate again because he believes that his blood carries a curse that will lead to the death of the recipient, though he finally relents and becomes involved in the life of the girl, with tragic consequences... Strange episode has a good cast, though is a bit too vague. Still, the twist ending may come as a surprise.
