Unusual episode concerns the plight of the Parish Family, who frequently squabble amongst themselves because of the condition of Mrs. Parish's son Jason, who is suffering from an unknown disfigurement that leaves him resembling a scaly fish-man. Desperate, they contact a noted hypnotist named Brown(played by David Lewis) who claims that he can cure Jason by utilizing his untapped mind force, which can psychically heal his appearance, making him appear normal, though of course Mr. Parish remains skeptical, until the surprise reveal at the end... Though contains lots of talk without much action, this still retains viewer interest throughout.
