Uncle Bill struggles with a kid who is far more unruly than Buffy or Jody....
13 October 2015 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an odd set-up for an episode of "Kraft Suspense Theatre". A young super-genius named Ralph has a super-explosive temper and it's triggered extremely easily. For some reason, a CID agent (Brian Keith) and a nurse are assigned to take him cross-country to some clinic where they are going to figure out what makes Ralph so angry. Now here's where it gets weird...during this trip, there is a station wagon following them...but why?! And, when their car has an odd breakdown, you cannot help but wonder what's coming next.

The agent played by Keith is a very nice and insightful guy---sort of like Uncle Bill from Keith's series "Family Affair" (except when he threatens to belt the kid--and I could easily understand why in this case). While this kid is certainly no Buffy or Jody, it does make for an interesting episode. Who is after the kid and why?!

Sadly, although Keith was very good in this, the resolution was just stupid--too pat, too uninteresting and too 'nice'. A big disappointment, as it ended just horribly.
