In the opening, the host says that hibernating bears have a body temperature between 40 and 57 degrees and they will not respond even if used as a pincushion. Black bears do not truly hibernate, although their deep-sleep torpor resembles hibernation. Their torpor body temperature is about 80 degrees, and if you poke a torpid bear with a stick it will wake up instantly. See more »
A doctor who has revived a couple of primates after they were literally dead, is stalked by a man whose son has been given a death sentence. The distraught father kidnaps the man's family and forces the doctor to try to revive his son. The wife is diabetic and may die from insulin shock if she isn't found. The doctor does everything to try to reason with the man, but he really has no choice but to work on the kid. The episode is pretty much a police drama and doesn't offer much in the way of science. The character actors are pretty good and there is reasonable suspense. I suppose that the resuscitation of primate species is valid, but that's about it.
