I have a confession to make.
I am a Sci-fi and TV geek. Original Star Trek did change the world. Brilliant young minds watching Kirk with his communicator, as children. Made cell phones and tablets.
Star Trek Next Generation had exotic Councilor Troy the half human Empath.
Movies and TV. Shows today have mutant genes, telekinetic teens, and floating over the bean dip super natural wonders.
But, I would like to point out a great TV psychic phenomenon. Corp. Walter “Radar” O’Riley.
The Doctors, Nurse and Enlisted personal of the 4077. Accepted Radar for who he was, the company clerk, with Precognitive and Telepathic abilities. When B.J. Honeycut joined the M.A.S.H. unit, he has a look of “How’d he do that” Hawkeye, stops him, with a “Just leave it?” Radar is accepted and counted on.
I would love to see more characters on T.V. with strong psychic gifts that are just normal folks. Living lives like on “Thirtysomething” .
3 cheers for Radar! Our T.V. Charter Psychic Hero.
