Not Much Science Fiction
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A doctor who has revived a couple of primates after they were literally dead, is stalked by a man whose son has been given a death sentence. The distraught father kidnaps the man's family and forces the doctor to try to revive his son. The wife is diabetic and may die from insulin shock if she isn't found. The doctor does everything to try to reason with the man, but he really has no choice but to work on the kid. The episode is pretty much a police drama and doesn't offer much in the way of science. The character actors are pretty good and there is reasonable suspense. I suppose that the resuscitation of primate species is valid, but that's about it.
