** Spoiler Alert **
SYNOPSIS: After a few years of performing as a novelty act, Dutch psychic Peter Hurkos's abilities are
tested in the laboratory of a prominent scientist, Dr. Lindstrom, who concludes that Hurkos' incredible
power comes from electrical impulses. The scientist sets out to prove that, but the pure research takes a
back seat when Hurkos is enlisted by the police to help solve a terrible murder.
COMMENTARY: This second portion of One Step Beyond's only two-part episode, focuses on two
important aspects of Hurkos' life: his tenure as a research subject in the experiments of Dr. Lindstrom
(Andrija Puharich in real life) and his frequent service to the police in the solving of crimes . . .
