T-minus 1 Week....


The Outer Limits turns 50 one week from today, and a quick Google search has turned up two very interesting celebrations.





At The Horse Hospital in London (no, it's not an actual hospital for horses; Wikipedia describes it as an arts venue "which caters for literary and spoken word events, underground film and avant-garde media screenings, and visual art exhibitions"), three episodes are being screened on 9/16/2013. First and foremost, the series' pilot "The Galaxy Being" is on the schedule, followed by a Robert Culp double feature ("The Architects of Fear" and "Demon with a Glass Hand"). Details can be found here.





A bit closer to home, the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention (last month on 8/18/2013) included a 50th anniversary tribute to the series. Several show alumni appeared and signed autographs, including Jacqueline Scott ("The Galaxy Being," "Counterweight"), Peter Mark Richman ("The Borderland," "The Probe"), and the impossibly gorgeous Joanna Frank (Regina the bee girl from "ZZZZZ"). I just found out about this today.... had I known a month ago, I probably would've sold a kidney to make the trip down there to meet her.


*Sigh*

  1. Dude, whoever you are, this blog is the first rival to books that I've ever seen! Well done! Incredible! I don't know computer stuff or how to sign up- hopefully I'll figure it out- I'm trolleard at Verizon dot net, but this site truly rivals the outstanding David Schow books, which are tied with Greg Mank's masterpieces as my favorite readings! Thank you!
