A Century of Science Fiction Full Episode Guide

  • Just as westerns have cowboys and Indians and crime films have cops and robbers, sci-fi films have their Flash Gordons and Mings the Merciless; Luke Skywalkers and Darth Vaders, among so many other heroes and villains.

  • There are the stars that astronauts travel to and then there is that "other" kind of star which, in the world of sci-fi, included John Agar, Ken Tobey, Richard Carlson, Charlton Heston, and so many others.

  • Swamp gas? Airplanes? Secret government weapons? Or are they really from "out there"? Here's a look at all the sci-fi flicks that have concerned themselves with flying saucers.

  • The A-bomb. The H-bomb. From the conclusion of World War II thru the 1950s (and beyond), people were fascinated by - and frightened of - the atom bomb and its horrible power. This made it a natural subject for sci-fi movies.

  • From the sexy Art Deco robot in Metropolis to the low-budget gorilla-with-a-space-helmet robot in Robot Monster and on to R2D2 and C3PO, audiences have been fascinated by mechanical men and women.

  • Zsa-Zsa Gabor played The Queen of Outer Space, but there were so many other sinister sci-fi sisters, as you'll discover!

  • This fascinating chapter takes a look at such mental manifestations as ESP, mind control, and telekinesis.

  • How many times have sci-fi films centered on mad scientists? (And what were they mad at?) Many legendary performers have taken their turn playing sinister scientists and deranged doctors, working on fantastic formulas.

  • Could there really be saber-toothed tigers, cave men, and dinosaurs on isolated islands and atop towering mountain peaks? These lost worlds are finally found.

  • A salute to the brilliant Victorian mind that gave us The Invisible Man, The Time Machine and War of the Worlds.

  • What will the world be like a hundred years from now? A thousand years from now? A million years from now? Science-fiction loves to play this particular game of "what if."

  • "Science fiction" has become almost synonymous with "outer space" - and with good reason. Take a delightful trip among the stars - at warp speed.

  • Long before Jurassic Park, dinosaurs roamed thru a variety of horror films, going all the way back to The Lost World in 1925.

  • Computers can be our friend, or they can be H.A.L. from 2001.

  • Time machines, disintegrator machines, shrinking rays - they're all here - and more!

  • What "things to come" will there be after man destroys himself - and the world? Here's a passel of post-apocalyptic pictures poised to please!
