Storyline

A physician invents a serum allowing animals to overcome any illness or injury, by magnifying their adaptability. He tests it on an impoverished young woman, who's moments from death. Becoming healthier than she's ever been, she thanks him for "giving her the world," which for her is much more than a figure of speech. Written by David Stevens

Pretty Far Fetched Medical Malpractice!
7 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought this looked familiar until I checked the same story a few years later on Science Fiction Theater. The plots are identical. It involves an experimental serum used on a terminal tuberculosis patient, a young woman who has no other options. Not only does it work, it revitalizes her. Unfortunately, she turns bad, able to adapt to her situations through evil means. Now the men have a twofold problem. They must support her in her recovery (not to mention their medical chicanery) and yet must control her. She has also taken a shine to the doctor who invented the serum and is manipulating him. She actually ends up in Washington with plans to rule the world. The solution in both of the episodes is the same and equally unsatisfying. In addition to the title product, these guys seem to have the ability to do some pretty incredible things in the medical field.
