Hello, folks! I'm involved with the Huntington's Disease Society of America. Two people have told me that an old Outer Limits episode had a character somehow touched by Huntington's Disease or which made reference to Huntington's Disease in some way. Can anyone help me? Is this accurate? If so,, which episode and what role did Huntington's Disease play in it? I'd appreciate any help you can give me! Jim Pollard Lowell, MA USA

It is not an "old" Outer Limits, that is, not a ep from the 60s. It is "Blood Brothers", a Brad Wright-written episode from the 1995 first season of the new OL. A sciientist discovers a cure for all diseases; his brother, a businessman, misuses it. The businessman brother has inherited the Huntington's Disease gene, hence his desire for the wonder drug. NECRONOMICON, all-instrumental electronic music inspired by H.P.Lovecraft, now available on c-60 cassette. E-mail StoOdin101@aol.com for details.

It could be "The Brain of Colonel Barham", where his body is deteriorating. They take his brain out and use it for a computer CPU, and he becomes powermad. This is the only one I can think of that might fit the bill. Marta JJPollard wrote: > > Hello, folks! > > I'm involved with the Huntington's Disease Society of America.
