| Weird opening for a TV Show
THE FEVERMAN is an inauspicious start for the MONSTERS TV show: it's not bad, really, and certainly not as bad as some of the episodes that were to follow, but it's mighty weird and not at all successful. The episode headlines a tired-looking David McCallum playing the titular character, a modern day shaman, who can remove illness...for the right price. When a man brings his ailing daughter for treatment, there are shocks in store for all involved.

The production values aren't bad here, and McCallum gives an excellent performance as the boozed-up old-timer, probably one of the best performances in the whole series. Strange, then, that the titular monsters are an ugly mess, resembling most those icky creations in Brian Yuzna's SOCIETY; not frightening, not in the least, but completely disgusting. There are some very bizarre scenes come the climax, and I'm not entirely sure I enjoyed them.
