Lunar Howling
28 September 2014 | by AaronCapenBannerSee all my reviews

The affect the moon has on human activity is examined in this episode, as both ER doctors and scientists debate the perceived phenomena of increased crime on the nights of the full moon, and the reasons why this may be the case. Could it be the pull of the gravity from the moon that affects tides affecting people, since much of the makeup of people is water? How may it have influenced our caveman ancestors, who anthropologists believe worshiped it, and believed it was the moon that impregnated women? Of course, the legendary myth of the werewolf is also brought up, and its cultural origins. Interesting episode if somewhat uneven dramatically.
