Those highlights though make this season a must buy. When you add in the special features that Kino has included (they listened about those promos for "The Outer Limits" from TNT featuring Robert Culp, Harlan Ellison, William Shatner, Cliff Robertson and Leslie Stevens among others) including commentary tracks for almost every single episode, interview with writer David Schow, alternate versions of the pilot episode and the final episode of season one "Please Stand By" ("The Galaxy Being)(which was originally designed as a pilot for another series as well) "The Unknown" ("The Forms of Things Unknown") , interviews with writer/producer of season one Joseph Stefano, actress Joanna Frank, casting director Meryl O'Loughlin, the William Paley Center TV Festival with guests proudcers Robert H. Juston, Joseph Stefano, director of photography Conrad L. Hall, actor Martin Landau writer Lou Morheim and author David M. Schow. We also get promo spots as well as other special features.
The transfers look very good--a clear improvement over the DVDs. Some have minor flaws but, given that the show is over 50 years old, that's not a surprise what has been done with these shows is pretty remarkable looking.
Audio also sounds quite good although please note that there is an audio glitch somewhat like wow and flutter that mars the episode "Solider" in the second half of the episode. I'm not sure if there are going to be replacement discs at this time.
Three stars for the second season (five for the best episodes) an additional star for all the special features.
Having bought the tapes and DVDs, I didn't feel like buying the same thing a third time so I skipped the Blu-ray box for season 1. But because season 2 was cut short, there is a lot of room in this set for extras, and there are plenty.
The visual quality is, to my non-expert eyes, greatly improved and the sound even more so. That's the good news. But to be fair, almost all the supplemental material has been available as bootlegs for years. In this new set, The Unknown and Please Stand By are obviously fewer generations from the originals but they are not cleaned up the way the regular episodes are. They are still quite interesting, and hearing Dom Frontierre's music used for The Invaders over an Outer Limits variant is pretty cool.
There's lots of commentary (the comentators on The Inheritors did not seem aware the little girl, Minerva was the actress Morgan Brittany), the TNT special, the TV spots are there, and the best quality you'll find. There are also a couple promos that appear to have been made for the affiliates. One, that for some reason I thought was going to be Nick Adams, the great actor from season one's Fun And Games, turned out to be singer Edie Adams (didn't she sing about smoking her Tiparillo?) These illustrate the incredbily awkward fit of the Outer Limits in the lineup of TV shows we watched in those days. Recall that the Outer Limits competed with The Jackie Gleason Show and was replaced by the gigantic and not very interesting King Family. And then, there was the TV Guide cover with Joseph Cotten standing next to an Outer Limits monster. Those were the days....
There's a nice booklet by David Schow with capsule summaries of season 2. I don't agree with his choices; I thought Behold Eck was delighful and Expanding Human was petty dreadful. But everybody agrees on Demon With A Glass Hand, and The Inheritors is really good too, if a bit corny at the end. I remember being genuinely terrified by Cry Of Silence but I was around 10 years old and the frogs looked real. That's one case where modern digital effects would have been better.
Lastly, and I have no idea why, there is a brief bit on the "new" Outer Limits. In a set with so many extras, this really seems off-topic. But that aside, this is exactly the kind of upgraded set that gives you a lot for your money, including some things you might not have seen before.
Had I known ahead of time, I would not have shelled out good money on it.
