15:30 "The Cure" (TV Series) 3085HT

We're definitely moving along the quality scale now, the only thing I can't figure out is whether it's toward "better" or "worse."

So let's see, we have:
  • Sondra Locke, pre Clint Eastwood, has some sexual version of malaria (and is shot mostly in soft focus, looking vaguely elfin).
  • The weirdest costumes so far in the form of anti-mosquito outfits that look like the way Klansmen would if they were costumed by George Lucas.
  • Albino mosquitoes, that we never actually see.  (It's not clear if Sondra Locke qualifies in this category).
  • Non-albino mosquitoes that are animated on the screen, but show up on top of the actors that you see.
  • Chinchona trees to make quinine that are actually eucalyptus.
  • The POTA theme is starting to sound suspiciously like Mission Impossible.  (Lalo Schifrin wrote both.)
You be the judge.

That episode is patently ridiculous--and a perfect example of just how many things the astronauts know how to do that most people would not.
