The Earthquake
18 November 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

David Banner(Bill Bixby) forges documents of safety expert Robert Patterson in order to gain access to a nuclear power plant's gamma ray equipment, specifically a gamma ray inversion laser that may finally cure him. Unfortunately, this ruse is discovered, but then by coincidence an earthquake also happens, trapping David and the staff in the damaged facility, forcing them to tunnel their way out to safety, but how is David going to get away this time? Contrived but entertaining episode at least makes good use of stock footage from inferior feature film "Earthquake". Rare case of David breaking/bending the law to get what he needs.
