The Usual Suspicion
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is a lack of imagination in these episodes. This is probably the eighth where a research scientist is demeaned by the press and the scientific community for a finding what should have been met with adulation. In this case, the inventor of an incredible camera finds that there is some kind of activity going on on the dark side of the moon. He knows this because spectrography shows that the metals exuding light are actually alloys. Reporters talk about this man as a nut case. Of course, the university won't back him up either and give him his walking papers. He also has a hysterical wife who shows little or no support for his work and harps at him to spend more time at home. The women in the show are often viragoes who are only interested in themselves. The scientists, of course, are classic nerds with few social graces. Anyway, this is a more interesting effort than most, though it is a bit unsatisfying.
