Hollingsworth Morse gave us "baby boomers" a taste of science fiction in the early 1950's. It's naïveté was inconsequential...as long as there was plenty of action/adventure. Stereotypes were exploited: Cool Captain Rocky Jones, silly sidekick, a wide-eyed kid, the absent-minded professor, the pretty women. The laws of physics were basically discarded and like Scottie of Star Trek, solutions [however obscure] were found just in time to save everyone. Abandon your scientific knowledge and enjoy these two episodes.
