Pickman's model -- fascinating but flawed story
23 August 2019 | by belanger75See all my reviews

It is a lotta talk before it's just payoff of a conclusion. Also, it's a Boston, Mass. that never was. I think some of the set here was previously used in Universal's Frankenstein movies in the 1940s.

BTW Josh Bryant plays one of the two men in the opening and he was a fairly frequent guest star on the bad left-wing legendary Mash ( See my reviews).
