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

Maybe it's NOT best if science could cure all illnesses!
16 October 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an interesting episode of "Tales of Tomorrow". A doctor has created an amazing serum that he's successfully used on animals. In each case, the animals with fatal illnesses 'adapted' to the illness and overcame it--almost instantly. Not surprisingly, he wants to use this on people but is having trouble getting hospitals to let him try it out on folks. When he uses to save a woman near death, she is cured--and then comes the twist. Something unforeseen happens and they've created a bit of a monster.

While not among the very best shows in the series, it is very good and thought-provoking. If you want to see it, try following the IMDb links or go to archive.org and download the available shows from the series (about half of them). It's sort of like an early incarnation of "The Twilight Zone" but with MUCH cheaper special effects.
