KIRKUS REVIEW

Five episodes which feature the galvanic genius of scientist Gallagher, who is wonderfully creative when drunk, but sobers up to a total blank- as well as the gravity pull of colossal hangovers. That he has no control over Joe, a robot he manufactures; that he forgets his commitments and the legal infractions which ensue; and that he is saved by a demon subconscious, soused in spirits, which invents a manual for a space ship, a time machine and a locker, and other fabulous devices- provide some patterned sequences. Bouncy.
