The only thing that stands between them and world domination is a brilliant but troubled high school student with a penchant for pranks...The Brain featuring Tom Bresnahan and Cynthia Preston is streaming with subscription on Prime Video, free on Freevee (Via Prime Video), streaming with subscription on Shout!
