(Yes, He's) The Great Pretender
21 February 2009 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This week's concluding half-hour begins by documenting Hurkos (Albert Salmi)'s work with Dr. Lars Lindstrom (Alf Kjellin), a likely parapsychologist. The doctor puts Hurkos through the obligatory ESP (extra sensory perception) tests. Hurkos does very well - but, really, how could he not? "God gave such a gift," it's explained. Then, Hurkos helps police find murders, like bowling alley worker Andrew Prine (as Walter Bird). Later, Hurkos claimed to have identified both the Boston Strangler and Charles Manson. Finally, the real Hurkos is brought on camera by host John Newland. Not very convincing.
