In Search Of... "Moon Madness" (1980)

The old myth of whether or not more violence happens during a full moon is discussed in this episode. Also covered is the question of more births during this period and if it might all be connected to us coming from the ocean. This is yet another very good episode for the series that manages to take a fascinating subject and turn it into an interesting debate. I thought the episode did a very good job at showing both sides of the coin meaning some people really do believe the full moon has control over a person's mental state while others think it's just something to blame. Fans of the series should certainly enjoy this one.
