Storyline

John Croxley is a man with Extra Sensory Perception, which enables him to read the minds of other people, although he regards it as a curse and has sought medical aid. One day, following a dog-fight with a UFO craft, Foster crashes into and destroys Croxley's house, at the same time causing the death of Croxley's wife. Holding Foster responsible for his bereavement, Croxley uses his powers to read Foster's mind and find out all about SHADO, which he intends to destroy. Written by don @ minifie-1

Oh no, he's got ESPN!
7 May 2010 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The idea that someone has ESP and can read minds is silly. Despite lots of amazing stories, controlled experiments have never validated the existence of this phenomenon. But, before you dismiss the episode because you think ESP is dumb (like I do), tell yourself the following "EVERYTHING about "UFO" is impossible...just go with it!". Yes, while ESP does not exist, I also strongly doubt that there is a covert war between UFOs and a secret UN organization--though, like ESP, some people surely must believe this, too.

The show begins with Colonel Foster chasing a UFO in the Earth's atmosphere. Unfortunately, he crashes and the UFO lands on a house--killing the housewife instantly. While Straker is very apologetic to the lady's grieving husband, no one realizes that he has super-ESP and has decided to take out SHADO. How does he do it? Well, he's able to read minds and has learned the organization's secrets. Now it's his personal mission to destroy SHADO. There is an interesting twist--see it and find out more for yourself.

This is an okay episode--neither good nor bad. I'd say more, but don't want to in any way offend those chumps who actually believe in ESP.
