On This, the Eve of the Season One Blu-ray Release...

I was interviewed about a week ago about my involvement with the Blu-ray release of The Outer Limits Season One (which streets tomorrow!), and the interview went live today. Check it out!

Here's a much larger version of the (quite tiny) picture of me they used. My old friend Martin ScorZanti is clearly the better looking.

First Blu-ray Review Is Up!

Two weeks from today, the legendary first season of The Outer Limits will be released on Blu-ray.... and the first review is up! CineSavant himself Glenn Erickson gives the set a pretty thorough rundown, and (spoiler alert) it's a glowingly positive review. Well, what are you waiting for? Click, man, CLICK!

He even mentions me--- well, not by name, but...

"Kino has produced a tall stack of audio commentaries for the boxed set, covering more than two thirds of the episodes. Unchallenged OL master David J. Schow takes on many of the top titles, and gives us authoritative reportage on the careers of Leslie Stevens and Joseph Stefano. Tim Lucas adds his brand of analysis and insight to other well-known hits, often citing surprising sources of inspiration for episodes, and connecting OL shows to later classic works. The other commentators range from knowledgeable authors, to specialists in TV music and art direction, to a super-fan blogger who knows his territory as well as anybody."

That's definitely me (I'm the only blogger on the roster, so...!). So between being listed as a "film historian" on the back cover and this,  I may be in serious danger of developing a Gwyllm Griffiths-sized swollen head...!
