The premise is interesting, but the writer paints himself into a corner. I double checked at the conclusion to see if I had inadvertently fast forwarded through the ending. This is the story of an unbalanced scientist who develops a way to turn all hard matter into water. Why he would want to do this is itself at question. Maybe because it is there or some other justification. Anyway, he is sugar daddy to some buxom little flirt who is just using him. He, for all his brilliance, can't see past the end of his nose. When she rejects him and his equally brilliant, nuclear physicist daughter dies, he goes bananas. There is a tussle in Washington as to what to do with the guy. They had the opportunity, at the very least, of hogtying him, but that doesn't come to pass, and he is sent out to reek havoc on the world. The problem with this is that he holds all the cards and the opposition are a pack of thumb twiddlers. A very strange episode to say the least.
