  1. Honestly this is one of my top three favorite episodes of all time! A touch of supernormal without being over the top. Roy, the investigative reporter's interaction with nurse Polly is delightful. And his experience in the desert makes the hair on my neck stand on end. From Roy's cranky boss to happy-go-lucky helicopter pilot Chadwick, writer Sam Dann's character development through dialogue is fantatsic. I'm having trouble finding a clear download of this episode.
