Pure Speculation
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Good old Whit Bissell is acting a little strange. He is snapping at people. Four pounds of fissionable material is missing and the police and other scientists are watching him. They even bring out a psychiatrist to diagnose his aberrant behavior. The story has no hints at all as to what is going on. There is a concentrated search for an escaped radioactive dog from the lab. The devil-may-care attitude of people exposing themselves to radiation is interesting. One group wears radiation suits while the others join them in street clothes. Maybe the show only owned a couple suits. Anyway, the result is disappointing in that the project that Whit is working on isn't set up by the facts previously introduced. A bad bit of storytelling.
