Neural Science Gone Amok
22 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Joel Gray appeared on this show a few times, usually playing some really eccentric character. In this one, he is the sad victim of bad karma. His wife and son were killed in a car accident and he managed to input his son's personality and knowledge into a computer. He was not able to do this with his wife. He has become obsessed with reproducing his son by stealing circuitry from his workplace. His boss is getting suspicious of all the stuff that has been disappearing. I have to say that the physical appearance of the techno-tyke he has produced is nightmarish. He is half human and half machine and he has these big ears sticking to the side. Gray's only outside contact is his niece Zoe who finally discovers what is going on. She loves her uncle but quickly realizes he has several loose screws. At one point the little robot decides to pet the cat but accidentally rips the skin right off the unfortunate creature. There is also a really spooky scene where Gray and his offspring go to a carousel, paying for exclusive use, and ride the horses. The "kid" starts to get more and more demanding and this puts pressure on Gray who could lose his job. When he asks Zoe to "babysit," the thing attacks and almost kills her. This series made me uncomfortable many times and this may be the master of all.
