I think I saw architects of fear but i get them confused. 

I saw the Tumbleweeds one the other day. it's not the best episode but it is one of the weirdest and is worth seeing.

SPOILER WARNING!!!!If it has Robert Culp being transformed into something not quite human anymore, that's The Architects of Fear where they create an "alien" in an effort to unite humanity.

I saw demon w/ glas hand the other night.  Obviously it's on a different sort of level than the other episodes.  much more lofty in it's ambitions, nothing that could really be said to be pulled from a comic book, not to denigrate the other episodes.  or maybe it's jsut weirder.  at any rate, it felt relatively contemporary

A tidbit about Demon with the glass hand.  If you watch the credits for the original Terminator you will notice a nod to Harlan Ellison.  He sued Orion Pictures for plagiarizing Demon with the Glass Hand and another episode of Outer Limits he wrote titled Soldier.

I just came in to post this. Ellison deserves more than a nod for Terminator, that's for sure.

The Architects of Fear, the episode that Alan Moore based the ending to Watchmen on.




According to him it was just a coincidence.   Lookingup

The Galaxy Being which was the very first episode.  The part where Cliff Roberston and the alien are talking after the creature gets tuned into the radio station was just amazing.  A hell of a way to start a series.

The Bellero Shield was very sad, and a great example of human greed and the lust for power, and how it eventually effects everyone.

Soldier Michael Ansara was great as the brainwashed Spec Ops guy from the future who was ready to kill anything in his path.

And then there was an episode with a robot called Adam Link, who was on trial for allegedly killing his creator. I forget the name of it, but it had a sad ending. It also starred Leonard Nimoy as a reporter if I remember right.

The Sixth Finger Watching David McCallum evolve was a trip.

And just for the cheese of it, let's throw in Adam West in The Invisible Enemy.  Sand sharks, anyone?   Smile

The episode with Adam Link was entitled I, Robot. It was remade in the 90s series. Nimoy appeared in both shows.

Than you kindly, sir  Cheers I never saw the remade episode, as I really don't watch any of the newer ones (as I favor the classic dated costumes and better storylines of the original 60's show).

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
