________________________________

We had a section for The Twilight Zone for years on both this version of All Sci-Fi and the old one that disappeared when the Free Forum web host crashed. But 95% of the posts were mine, with very few replies.

One day I decided that the lack of activity meant that our members agreed with me — the The Twilight Zone actually had very few actual science fiction stories compared to the total number of episodes which aired. And very few members had anything to say about those episodes. Sad

Admittedly the ones which were science fiction are very good! But the threads I started for those episodes rarely attracted any replies.

Folks, do we need a forum dedicated to The Twilight Zone, or can we just add posts to this thread which Eadie has created?

I'll create a new forum for The Twilight Zone here on All Sci-Fi if I get enough request for it from our members to do so.

Say the word, folks! I'm listening. Very Happy

I don't think it's really necessary to give it it's own forum.

A thread here is sufficient. As a matter of fact, the SCIENCE FICTION THEATRE forum section should be rolled into the 50's TV forum section.

Just a thought.

Yes, Gord, the Science Fiction Theatre forum has been kind of a bust, too, but I don't have a way to "roll it into the 50s TV forum section", so the only thing I could do is either delete it the way I did with [b ]The Twilight Zone[/b] forum or just leave it right where it is.

I guess I'll just leave it where it is. A least Science Fiction Theatre really is "all sci-fi".

________________________________

The old board had an extensive thread for On Thursday We Leave for Home, and I still have the impressive screen grabs I created for it.

I think I'll make a post about it. After all, the survivors have been living on what looks like "Altair 4" (for obvious reasons), and they're rescued by the C-57-D. Very Happy

Here's a few of the screen grabs I made. Some of them were actually made with my digital camera about six yeas ago right from my TV before I found out that making screen grabs was easier than picking my nose!

Boy, was I slow to figure that out, eh? Rolling Eyes

This story could be considered an "alternate universe" version of what happened to the Bellerophon if there had been no Krell machine, no Id monster, and their ship had crash landed!
