Storyline

A dying astronaut volunteers his mind be linked to a supercomputer, to enable the U.S. to beat the Soviet Union to Mars. His wife and an Air Force psychiatrist oppose the brain removal, fearing that the arrogant spaceman's brain won't adapt, making his death futile. But the Cold War space race takes precedence, so the experiment proceeds, despite eerie developments. Written by David Stevens

Mind Control
17 March 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Anthony Eisley stars as Colonel Barham, a dying astronaut confined to a wheelchair who volunteers to be a part of an experimental operation that will see his healthy brain removed from his body, and placed in a complex artificial container connected with a supercomputer that will allow him to undertake the mission to Mars that is being planned. Unfortunately, the arrogant-minded Barham becomes even more so, developing an inflated egomania and a dangerous form of mind control that threatens the lives of the staff. Grant Williams also stars as Major McKinnon, and Elizabeth Perry as the Colonel's wife. Uninspired episode is mired in too many clichés to succeed.
