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

Repeat Viewings Required
19 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

About a brain transplant that goes wrong.

I hated this hour on my first couple of viewings, but repeat viewings do wonders for several episodes of The Outer Limits, now I like it. However, I am a sucker for shows about the US military and it is nice to see the star of The Incredible Shrinking Man again.

The New Adventures Of Wonder Woman (1979) also did a cool show about a brain transplant.

Only two more episodes left and that is the end of The Outer Limits. The next episode is one of the six worst of the whole series and the final - The Probe - is good but flawed. Not a great way for a series like this to go out.
