One Step Beyond has a little known 'lost' episode which ran once, instigated outrage, and was pulled to languish in obscurity until You Tube. Instead of a story, it has a documentary format and it concerns the search for ESP inducing compounds in Mexico, the nature of which should be obvious to any reader. In the second half, they have returned to the US with some of these compounds, all legal at the time, and the *host* partakes as a test subject, unintentional hilarity ensues prior to the ESP test.
"How will I know if it's working?"...."Oh, you'll know"
"Lie down before the side effects kick in"..."wait, uh, SIDE EFFECTS? What side effects!??".
"The colors...so intense, amazing, fantastic...I want to jump in!"
(not direct quotes, but my recollection of their nature)
The researchers are classic Scientists with a capital S, and the panel wrapup at the end features one guy clearly a bit gaga over the experience.
Very daring for a TV show in the 50's to do this. Interesting episode.
