Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Playing around with some advanced radio equipment, 20-year-old physics geek Devon Taylor (Joshua Jackson) begins picking up some strange but catchy music from a distant solar system. Before long, every teenager on earth is movin' and groovin' to the funky outer-space tunes. Unfortunately, while the music has no effect on adults, it has a tendency to transforms the teens into silver-skinned mutants with the potential to destroy all mankind. In a neat bit of casting, Howard Hesseman, who previously played the ultra-hip radio deejay Dr. Johnny Fever on WKRP in Cincinnati, is here seen as Devon Taylor's uptight father. "Music of the Spheres" first aired on May 9, 1997.
