What a shame
. I'll still check it out though. There hasn't been a good "serial" show in...like...decades now.
I've watched a lot of Outer Limits and Tales from the Crypt. I've only seen the most "highly rated" Twilight Zone episodes and they were all really good.
Honestly I am biased, I am not exaggerating when I say it is my favorite show of all time, but seriously if you ever can, watch every single episode. I honestly only think about 10 are not that good, and even the bad ones are good IMO.
Truly though the reason I loved the show was it always had a deep message about humanity. There was almost always a "lesson" being told as well. It really was made for the benefit of trying to make man a better species. It had a very specific purpose. And somehow it was also very entertaining. It truly was genius as far as I am concerned.
I have not missed a New Years Marathon in I do not know how many years now. In fact, I STILL have a few episodes from the 4th of July Marathon on my DVR. Saved them just because they are my all time classic favorites.
I recently started collecting the figures. So far I have these 4...
They really are great figures. The clothing, etc., is all real cloth, etc. My only regret is not buying two of each so I could open one and display them at work like a true geek.

yeah I remember the Outer Limits being something similar to Twilight Zone as well and that was really cool!
Yep, I really liked the Outer Limits as well.

They really pushed the envelope with their pilot, that's for sure!
Though it feels more like a mini-series.
Should be interesting to see how they keep unraveling this one out...
They truly did. Cable TV is definitely a lot more risque than it used to be, that is for sure. I was pretty surprised at all of the sex-masturbating scenes.
They were pretty much the most R-Rated stuff I have ever seen on cable TV.
I really think it has some serious potential. Definitely. Next week is a crucial episode IMO. It is going to dictate the flow of the rest of the series. Really looking forward to it.
