Peter Shottwell, a high school wrestling coach, gives his students an experimental performance enhancing drug. When his son Peter beats the local bully Brent in a race, he gets a leg cramp and his friend Brae tells him "Okay Flash, time to slow it down...". John Wesley Shipp (Peter Shottwell) also played the title character in The Flash (1990). See more »
When Brent is shouting in the hallway for Morris to come out and face him, the scratches on his neck are already visible, well before he gets clawed at super speed. See more »
A wrestling coach who has fallen on hard times, victimized by his own physical limitations, has taken on a high powered program in his old high school. He was part of a series of a state championship run, but lost his Olympic chances to a leg injury. One day he is visited by a former teammate who did go on to greater things. This man introduces him to a nutrient that he says was the difference between success and mediocrity. He claims it is legal and is awaiting FDA approval. The wrestling team is group of five guys (I don't know what research the producers did in coming up with such a group. What happened to weight divisions and other such realities. All five seem to be about the same size). These guys are not very good. Of course, we know they're going to take the stuff and start to win. The kicker is that the stuff has some interesting side effects. The sheer stupidity of the plot and the results are ludicrous. This is a serious throw-away episode, hardly worth the time.
