Summary

A washed-up reporter takes on nanotechnology as his new assignment. He happens across a new way to clean up oceanic oil spills only to find that the microscopic nanobots will eat just about anything - and everything.

When Solutions Cause More Problems Than They Solve

Any additional comments?

A pretty straightforward and predictable storyline here but a great listen nonetheless. The story is a modern day take on the idea of bringing in cats to kill the snake problem, only to end up being overrun by cats.
Very well produced and acted with some great sound effects.

THE NANOBOTS ARE ABOUT HAVE THIER FIRST MEAL

Extremely predictable. You could have wrote a better story. Stacy Keach and the music are the best part. If you have ever watched the new show Crowed (few have, but it is growing on me.), This is the old man.

Ahead of its time, but still badly acted

An early story about nano-robots is neat, but the story itself is quite simplistic, poorly voices, and containing simplisticly flat characters.

Nano Nightmare

A timely tale of science corrupted by greed. Students of a researcher have no patience and inadvertently release a horror on the planet they are trying to save. An enjoyable listen, great cast and sound effects.

Great book

Very good story . Would recommend to everyone who likes the twilight zone. I've seen them on TV but listening to them is even better.

Mediocre

Well executed production, but predicable to anyone with a small knowledge of science. I'd pass.

No big surprises. Still worth a listen.

Even if this episode is somewhat predictable, it's still worth a listen. They really go full out with the "nanobot menace" idea. Excellent writing - actually presenting some surprisingly interesting visual (yes!) things. Good acting and great sound.
