To be clear, I'm referencing the original 60s-era "Outer Limits," and not the nineties remake.


If I were any more aware of what you meant it'd be written on my forehead.

Have you ever seen the episode entitled "Demon With a Glass Hand?" It was written by Harlan Elllison, and I think it's better than 99% of the TZ's episodes.


That's quite a response.

I was never into "Outer Limits."

That's great. You still didn't answer the question. Here's another -- how many episodes have you actually seen?

More like a regular Artie Lange, minus the obesity and drug habit.

Okay, just to clarify it for you, nope I never saw that episode.

I have however seen a number of episodes when it aired on the Sci Fi Channel and I didn't like it at all.

Satisfied?

Don't pretend I didn't see you drop acid, dude. You have to stop the paint huffing also.

I watched it when it was originally on when I was a kid and had remebered liking it. It didn't stand the test of time for me. Sad The 10 or 11 episodes I've seen so far were more miss than hit.

Yeah, and Sci-Fi is already scaling back their airings of the show. As of Nov. it's only on Mondays from 12:00-1:00 am. I don't know what they were thinking, airing it in primetime (I love it, but, really, did they expect stellar ratings from an obscure, low-budget horror anthology from the 80's?) I would've thought they'd put it into their daytime marathon rotation.

I just hope they don't remove it from their schedule altogether- it's not on at all the last Monday in Nov.

I've been Tivo'ing all of them. The show brings back such fond memories. Some are classic and some really sucked, but hey, they couldn't all be winners. Just watching A Case of the Stubborns again almost had me emotional. It's the only episode I remember perfectly watching with my late grandfather as he explained to me what the word "fret" meant and how much he enjoyed Eddie Bracken. Awwhhhh, to be 10 again...
