Storyline

In 1922 the town of Chico, California was pelted by rocks falling from an empty sky. A writer who called himself The Ghost took credit for the phenomena, but was never identified. Similarly, in 1917 a stranger appeared to government officials in Washington, D. C. and demonstrated a new fuel made from water that could power an auto engine. After his successful exhibition, the stranger vanished as quickly as he had appeared. The FBI and Secret Service searched for months and could never find him. Written by richardann

Two episodes in one!
15 April 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is the only episode I've seen of "One Step Beyond" where instead of one story, there are two shorter ones. One was about some weird happenings in Chico, California and the other was about a guy who supposedly invented a gasoline pill!

The story about Chico is unusual in that there really are documented accounts to substantiate the weird occurrences. Now I am not saying it's true--but many people apparently believed it happened and I have a hard time saying what really occurred. These sorts of stories worked well on the show--too bad this wasn't stretched for the entire episode!

The second is really dumb and has helped to stoke countless urban legends. A man supposedly invented a gasoline pill that works when you add it to water. Sure...and if you believe that, I'd love to interest you in buying my perpetual motion machine.

Overall, you've got a mixed bag her--one very good mini-episode and one dumb one that dumb folks will swear is true--and many have over the years.
