Watch Outer Limits
- 7 Seasons
The Outer Limits was considered a ground breaking show in it's day. Stories of the strange and bizarre were featured and they generally had a moral or a statement of the condition society was in. The original series was in black and white and an hour long. The stories came from a variety of writers and directors, many of whom went on to become famous in their own right. Often alien life forms and inter-dimensional travelers would be featured, or travel to other planets by astronauts. Things were never what they seemed to be on the surface in any of the many episodes, and they generally began right at the heart of the situation. The narrator would begin the show by informing viewers they were in control of the airways and the television set. Some would consider the show terribly outdated now with our technology, but for it's time they had a pretty good grasp of what the future could potentially hold. End of the world scenarios were explored along with what would happen if we were invaded by aliens from other worlds. Scientific marvels were explored, both for the good and bad things that they were capable of. The series was revived briefly, holding true to the concept and format but never seemed to enjoy the following the original had then and still has today. The special effects were far more advanced than that of the original series yet it didn't quite seem to have the same spirit of adventure and wonder that made the original so popular.
