The Usual Stupid Know-It-Alls!
14 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Edmund Gwynn and William Shallert show up at a lab, ready to show the scientists how to capture energy from invisible particles, traveling through space. Gwynn is obviously from some place in outer space but because he is lacking time, never mentions this to anyone. By the way, Shallert has the weirdest sideburns in the history of television. Gwynn charms his way into the lab of a respected scientist and proceeds to show him unbelievable things. Of course, the forces of stupidity enter and screw everything up. These are the naysayers who are more concerned with the idiosyncrasies of the old man that anything he could teach them. The point of this episode is to teach us about cosmic rays and their effect, but that's not what it ultimately does. See it. At your peril.
