I rather enjoyed this episode. The first in a while that didn't deal with psychosomatic or psychological problems. A 1980's reporter finds information on a 19th century doctor/inventor who reportedly has invented a time machine. The reporter finds it and is transported back to the doctor's age where he is petitioned by the doctor to discover information about his daughter's love fearing that her suitor is really a serial murderer. The reporter discovers the truth, wins the heart of the fair maiden, and deciding to remain in the past lives happily ever after. Strange to have such a just and happy ending.

A strange box uncovered at the site of a 19th-century scientist's laboratory transports a reporter 100 years back in time. The box, it turns out, is something of a booby trap set by the scientist to snare a man from the future with the intent of discovering whether his daughter's fiance is a murderer.
