For some reason I guess we'll never know, the writers took an episode from Season 8 (episode 28)and tried to do it again. They used a completely different actor for Jud (Ron Hayes originally) and Wonder (Edmund Vargas originally), and assumed we would all remember them.
It even confused the IMDb writer of the synopsis; that synopsis is actually the plot of the 1963 episode, so even the people reviewing this one don't know it's another episode.
It would be hard to spoil this episode, as you would probably go to sleep reading it. Just suffice to say that the first go-round, "I Call Him Wonder," was much better; actually heart-warming. It happened back when Chester was still with the show, and Leonard Nimoy was a bad guy in the original episode.
Go watch it. There's more to it, even if it is in black and white. This was just a poorly done recycle that never went anywhere.
