Storyline

During a Congressional appropriations investigation, an Air Force sounding rocket returns to Earth with an unexpected cargo: a block of ice with unusual chemical properties. Soon the base commander, Major Dozier, is forced to deal not only with the bullheaded Congressman Burns, but the fact that the ice seems to be able to freeze everything around it.

Newman Is Interesting to Watch
8 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A top secret rocket returns to earth. In it is a large chunk of ice. This is no ordinary ice, however. It has the capabilities of freezing everything in its surrounding area. It has to be stopped somehow, but melting doesn't work, hacking, chopping, nothing. And it appears to be like the Blob because if it were to be blown up, pieces would probably begin to react wherever they landed. Most of the episode takes place in an office where a congressman argues about the expense of this project with a military man named Dozier. The other elephant in the room is Paul Newman in his debut on television. He works to come up with something to recommend this clunker. As an episode it is talky and endless. The acting by the others, including Raymond Bailey, the banker on the Beverly Hillbillies, is really lacking. And the sets are just plain awful. A chair and a desk make up most of it, and, of course, a chunk of ice, purchased at some fifties ice house (if you look carefully, you can see that it is melting).
