Brain Storage
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A scientist who finished in first place in the Ernest Thesiger look alike contest is running out of time. He has been diagnosed with some serious stroke related symptoms. He has been working feverishly on brain research, but knows his days are numbered and wishes to pass his knowledge on to a younger man. Unfortunately, before he can do this, he ends up paralyzed in a hospital. He manages to use the one finger that still works to send a binary code to the scientists. They interpret the code and keeping his brain alive while the rest of him has gone the way of all flesh. They are able to get significant information to continue. For a time, however, the episode drops into saccharine religious sentimentality. It makes me wonder if they were trying to appease some representative audience with this stuff.
