This is, in my opinion, an extremely well-written and well-performed episode. I can only find the smallest of complaints ("Dr. Smith" describing a simple computer log-in by saying "Program in your name") as I find this episode to be one a highly laudable and relevant treatment of the "young prodigy" theme. Jeff Davis, who was "unknown" on screen at the time, seemed to be custom-made to play this part. At the time I thought they must have sought an actual prodigy for the part rather than using a trained actor. The drama works really well. Very nice characterization of "Chris Gunn" - trying to fit in at college while full of doubt and sensitive to the cues exuded by his "peers." His father's character adds enormously to the drama despite the briefness of his appearances. The episode is extremely well written when it comes to building the characters and revealing their concerns and conflicts. The average person may think this is merely "fine" but for those who have experienced this kind of social isolation, I give a special plus to the episode and rate it as 10 out of 10. Its theme deals with the difficulty (but also the need) to try to bridge social gaps.
