It's a Cold Cold War!
13 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A man loses two weeks due to some sort of brainwashing. This is about a scientific effort to bring him back to reality and find out what happened to him. Apparently, there is some sort of formidable spy network functioning in Germany and he may have inadvertently given away secrets. No one knows this. How do they even speculate about it? Anyway, it is the original Sounds of Silence routine. The story plays out in it's well diagrammed but really suspect way to an inevitable conclusion. It is again filled with incredible paranoid by the military and the federal government. No wonder McCarthy had such a great time. About the only intriguing thing for me is the appearance of Phyllis Coates, who was Lois Lane in the first season of the George Reeves "Superman" (Noel Neill took over later). She really doesn't do anything in this episode other than support her poor husband who is catatonic through nearly the whole thing.
