Storyline

After Ben Kohler is shot in the head during a mugging, Dr. Jennifer Martinez gets permission to implant an experimental chip in his brain meant to regulate his breathing and heartbeat. The chip has been tested on monkeys with some success but previous human tests have been less successful. Kohler awakens quickly and is told he is the first to receive the new chip. Soon however, he begins to see things, as though he can see through another man's eyes. That man, Wayne Haas, was a recipient of the earlier model of implant. He's also a serial killer. Haas however can also see through Kohler's eyes. When he reports what he saw to the police, they suspect that Kohler is the killer. Written by garykmcd

a rather pedestrian affair
18 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

When Ben Kohler (Sam Robards) gets an experimental brain transplant/ chip implant after being shot in the head from point-blank due to a common mugging, he begins to see visions of what a murderer is seeing, but the murder can do the same thing to Ben. Turns out the doctor (Jacob's Ladder's Elizabeth Peña) who spearheaded the surgery isn't telling everything to a much bewildered Ben. Not particularly bad, but not that good either.The acting was alright, but the story has been told better in other films and TV shows. No variations on the theme to speak of in this episode.

My Grade: C-
