Pretty good.

Bruce Cabot plays a young doctor, Dr. Terrell, who seems to constantly be at odds with the Chief Surgeon. However, some of this might be because there is a hugely important surgery coming up and the boss is taking out his frustration on his colleague. It seems that a very important scientist needs a delicate brain operation and the two men will do it together. Now here is where it gets strange--that night an odd man, 'Dr. Xenon' arrives and gives Terrell some special glasses that will help him do the delicate operation. It gets even stranger when Xenon informs Terrell that he will be the man in charge of the surgery--not his boss. And, the next day when he learns his boss is ill, this really makes him think. And, who is this Xenon? Both he and his secretary cannot find out anything about him. What's next? Watch the show.

Some may dislike the rather vague ending but it didn't bother me. What did was that Cabot was 48 and playing the role of a man at least 10-20 years younger. Still, this was a minor problem--as were a few flubbed lines (I think it was aired live). Overall, an interesting installment of an unusual anthology series that predated "The Twilight Zone" by almost a decade.
