A Real Trip
17 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man becomes superhuman through the use of drugs. He murders a security guard and a man who held the pursestrings on his research project. The research is into mind and body expansion. The stuff of Timothy Leary. A police detective played by James Doohan (later of Star Trek as the inimitable Montgomery Scott) comes to investigate. The college campus is fraught with craziness, students who have become absorbed into these going on. The problem with this episode is it goes on forever and nothing much happens. This is one of the most forgettable episodes of the series. It is indeed appropriate to the time but is there anything prophetic about it? I don't know.
