I think this is the best episode of Route 66. Martin Milner shines an as the unwitting victim who ingests a dangerous drug. He plays every emotion flawlessly. I think it is his greatest performance on film.If you can only see one episode of Route 66, let it be this one. You will be hooked on this show forever.This is long before his days on the hit TV show Adam 12. He was just beginning his long run as an actor.The supporting cast which includes the great Murray Hamilton is a don't miss episode.Look for this show on e-bay amazon.com or any where else you can find it. I am surprised it is not out on DVD yet. This show is filled with many great guest stars. Slim Pickens, Ben Johnson. Just to name a few.
