THE CAPTAIN WITH BARBARA LUNA ( 0UTER LIMITS EPISODE "IT CRAWLED OUT OF THE WOODWORK") AT WORLD CON III 2010.



The Outer Limits is an American television series. Similar in style to the earlier The Twilight Zone, though tending more to science fiction than fantasy, The Outer Limits is an anthology show in which each episode is a self-contained story, sometimes with a plot twist. In its original incarnation the show ran for two seasons from 1963 to 1965 in black-and-white.

The Outer Limits originally was broadcast from 1963 to 1965 on the U.S. television broadcasting network ABC, and a total of 49 episodes. Leslie Stevens created it, and was one of many series influenced by The Twilight Zone and Science Fiction Theatre, though it ultimately proved influential in its own right. In the un-aired pilot, the series was titled Please Stand By, but ABC rejected it; Stevens retitled it The Outer Limits. With a few changes, the pilot aired as the premiere episode, "The Galaxy Being".

Writers for The Outer Limits included creator Stevens and Joseph Stefano (screenwriter of Psycho), who was the series' first-season producer and creative guiding force. Harlan Ellison wrote "Demon With a Glass Hand" and "Soldier" for the more cautious second season. After James Cameron revealed in an interview that the inspiration for Terminator had come from Ellison's stories, Ellison sued him and was awarded several hundred thousand dollars in damages, and an end-credits mention in The Terminator (1984), stating the creators' wish to acknowledge the works of Harlan Ellison. The courts also awarded Ellison the right to an acknowledgement of his works included to all future versions of the film.

Like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits had an opening and closing narration to almost every episode — the "Control Voice" (Vic Perrin) – and distinctive music, originally by Dominic Frontiere, listed as a "Production Executive"; the second season featured a new theme by Harry Lubin. The dramatic thrust of the two programs was different. The Twilight Zone used irony, the protagonist would achieve his goal, but not in the manner desired. The Outer Limits was straight action that deeply delved into philosophical problems within a science fiction context. Many of the stories dwelled upon the triumph of the human spirit, often in confrontation with dark existential forces within or without (hence, the "... mystery which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits").

Sorry
I haven't been on here in a while. As you know my husband Ken was
fighting cancer, well he lost his battle about 8 weeks ago. I have had a
lot of stuff on my plate to take care of and deal with. when Ken was
living my time was taken up for the 7 months of his battle with caring
for him. I have been dealing with my grief and home and things of that
nature since his passing. I was blessed to have shared 30 wonderful
years with my husband. Now I'm trying to learn to live the new life that
has been handed to me. I shared everything with Ken he was my best
friend as well as my partner in this life. I still can't believe he's
gone, my heart hurts beyond words. Just wanted to stop on your page real
quick and let you now what has been up with me. Not sure how often I'll
be on here, but I want wish you a wonderful new week ahead. Take care
my friend. Much love to you from me.
