A Neat Episode
18 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a visual representation of the episode where sound is captured in rock. Once again a scientist is placed in a loony bin because he is having delusions. He has been observing a pictorial record of places where rocks have actually produced visions, captured in a previous time: pyramids, dinosaurs, atomic bombs, etc. Unfortunately, when anyone else looks through the microscope, they see nothing, only the rock or crystal. He has been chosen as the person receiving the top prize to be awarded in Geneva, Switzerland. Of course, being a nut, they are going to take away his chance since he is a representative of American science. There are several embarrassing moments along the way and he drops into a deep depression. A pretty good episode all around.
