Storyline

Beth Carter was born with a condition that renders her completely without any emotions. Her doctor, Steven Molstad proposes that she undergo experimental brain surgery where an implant should give her the normal range of emotions found in all human beings. At first the surgery seems to have succeeded with Beth experiencing laughter, sadness and impatience for the first time. After three months she out of the hospital living with Joan Garrison, has a job and is trying to adjust to normal life. She begins to hears strange sounds and muffled voices and after an odd neighbor mentions being an alien abductee, she actually sees aliens in her apartment. Dr. Molstad think the implant has malfunctioned but the truth is far more complex. Written by garykmcd

Too Many Implausibles
18 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode is nicely set up. It concerns a young woman who suffers from a syndrome that leaves her emotionless. In the face of great danger or possible joy, she does not react at all. She and people like her are being studied by a research fellow who believes he can treat this condition with a brain implant. He is quite cautious and is joined in his quest by another researcher, played by Michele Greene. The implant is placed in the brain and after a bit of uncertain results, the young woman begins to feel emotions (starting in the hospital when she uses the TV remote to change channels because she doesn't "like" the show she is watching). Eventually, she is placed with Greene in her apartment. She is overjoyed at her prospects. She even takes a shine to the young man she meets as she climbs the steps each day. Unfortunately, another set of tenants cause an issue for her. The woman, a bit of a wacko, tells the implant patient that she had been abducted by aliens once and experimented upon. Coincidentally, at this time our patient begins to hear voices and can't make them stop. She also sees alien figures and becomes hysterical. He greatest fear is that the doctor who did the implant will remove it and return her to her previous condition. He, indeed, does pose that threat. Unfortunately, toward the end, it gets beyond believable and I was greatly disappointed not by what happens, but by what we are expected to logically accept (even with a willing suspension of disbelief). Still, the concept is really fascinating, so I give it a mild recommendation.
