Yet Another Misuse of a Substance
11 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we go again. Another character is taking something that he/she shouldn't have. In this case we have a 200 year old man who has developed that depression that comes with relationships coming and going, people dying off while he goes on. He apparently has developed a juice that keeps him alive. At some point back in the 1800's he was charged with murder, and so the current police detective (this is so stupid, I can't even believe it) wants to bring him to justice. These SFT police kind of run their own show. I guess it's up to him whether a person should be charged or not. Actually, he's interested in the young research assistant in the lab where the guy works. There are the constant displays of affection which certainly don't help the mood of our poor guy. He has almost no interest in the scientific realities of the most remarkable cases of the century. Anyway, he is talked into letting the guy continue to help with the research. Some of these don't really pass the smell test. Of course, we're supposed to suspend our feelings and think these two are to be admired. This is a really awful episode.
