The Outer Limits was one of the first complete series that I bought when it was available on DVD (I have the old flipper sets).



I still enjoy watching the series, but many episodes have aged poorly. Other episodes, such as Demon With a Glass Hand, look just fine. I like the idea of ....love....being a theme in many episodes. And I loved all of the space episodes.

The classic episode "O.B.I.T.", which deals with omnipresent surveillance, loss of privacy and addictive voyeurism, is more relevant now than when it was first shown more than 50 years ago. Except back then, it was considered science fiction!

I wish I would have kept it, but last year, on a web page, I saw a post about the control console from the rocket. It was all about the different movies and TV shows it was used on. Like the "Forbidden Planet" gizmo, it really made the rounds.

I thought at first that it might be the control panel used in Disney's Man and the Moon segment, but on close examination there several difference. And yet there are a lot of similarities, too.

I believe it is the same panel, just with minor changes. It appeared in "Man and the Moon", "The Outer Limits", "Queen of Outer Space", "Men Into Space", "The Phantom Planet" (which used sets and props from "Men Into Space"). These are the ones I remember, there may be others, but I don't remember.

I, too, agree on it being the same panel(s).

I've never been a big fan of The Outer Limits, but this Starlog article from issue #4 tempts me to give it another try

Unfortunately, dear old Netflix has the series listed, but it only offers to "Save in DVD queue". Sad

Before Watchfree.to ceased to exist, I probably could have downloaded episodes from Vidzi.tv, but that option is now gone too.

Anyway, here's the short article and an episode guide. I was careful NOT to brighten the already high-contrast photos when I cleaned up the text sections. So the bleached-out images ain't my fault! Shocked


Click on each page here to see a large, easy-to-read version you can zoom in on. Click on the large version again, and then zoom in as close as you want!

That's the earliest copy of Starlog that I own! I sold most of them years ago for space but kept some of the earlier copies that have episode guides as such! I still say the original Outer Limits is far superior to the later version made in the nineties even with it's sexy approach to most episodes!

I've probably got a lot to say here on ALL SCI-FI, much of it possibly said before on a number of other message boards, and fanzines, under other pen names that I can't even remember, but will probably be new to possibly all of the other members of ALL SCI-FI.

The I, Robot episode introduced me to the two Binder Brothers, Edward and Otto, their names combined into Eando Binder for the Adam Link Robot stories.

As I said in another thread on another ALL SCI-FI forum, Otto's work, Flying Saucers Are Watching Us, is one dear repo????ed memory, as Andro, in the Man Who Was Never Born episode would put it.

Can anyone tell me (possibly you've seen the script?) exactly what that word, dear re ???what??? memories actually was?

This post is a lot of free association, and along with having no time to say all I want to about Outer Limits, I also don't have time to read the previous 2 pages of this thread, which seem extremely verbose, but might be worth reading when I have the time.

Just a few minutes ago, I mentioned as a seventh grader, near Christmas of 1963, drinking some fermented in the refrigerator grape quice squeezings, while watching Queen Of Outer Space, on a portable BW TV set with fuzzy reception.

Well, by 1978 or so, I was legally old enough to buy the "hard stuff," and drank the pretty colored Mr. Boston flavored vodkas, diluted with water while reading Ted Ryple's The Outer Limits An Illustrated Review, (TOLAIR in acronymn form). Old Mr. Boston, and just plain Mr. Boston and those wonderful pretty colored, green, purple, red and yellow nostrums, have long faded into the past, along with buying wine by the gallon and by the quart. (Have often wondered if some of the cats in New Orleans also stole it by the gallon, and stole it by the quart?)

And, how would Grandpa Jones sing "The Wagon Yard," today?

"I wish I'd got me a 200 millilitre, and stayed in the wagon yard?"

Martin Landau's line is: "There is no future. Only the safe and dear upholstered memories."

You can hear it quite clearly around the 10:55 mark.

I wonder, how much does it cost to have memories re-upholstered?

Thanks for the post, scotpens. Like some other board members who claim that their hearing has deteriorated with age, I also have that condition, but could not make out what that word that Andro used after "dear" and before "memories" was.

But, decades ago, I heard the word after dear as starting with an r, although from your typing it out, it did end in ed, which was how I heard it.

Sometimes when words that are spoken or sung in a song, are written out, then we hear the recording of the song, or the film they were spoken in, they do sound like what they were written out as, although in this case, I do not think I have ever heard of memories being "upholstered."

Have you, or anyone else, reading this thread, ever heard of "upholstered" memories?

I suppose since Andro and the astronaut (Joseph Reardon?) were in a library, I suppose the memories spoken of as being upholstered could refer to the book bindings.

I assumed it was a poetic figure of speech -- memories that are soft, familiar and comforting, like a favorite old chair.
