Perhaps you can live forever....

This episode stars Jeffery Jones (who, incidentally has a VERY interesting IMDb trivia page). He's a researcher who is studying how to transfer a person's consciousness into a computer---probably because he's seriously ill and dying. His co-workers refuse to do this...so he does it on his own. The experiment is successful--but what will happen next? After all, just because he's downloaded onto a computer doesn't mean he's alive. And, what will 'life' be like for someone like this?!

This episode is ridiculously impossible but they manage to make it seem possible. I appreciate that. Overall, while wildly implausible and weird, it's also compelling and worth seeing. Not a great episode but a very good one.
