Admittedly, a new experience for me, but riveting nonetheless!


I just finished watching "Will the real Martian please stand up?" and found it mind blowing (love the actor who portrayed the kooky gramps)

This show is awesome. I am currently watching eye Of The Beholder, and I think I can predict the twist:

Since they don't show people's face I assume that everyone is hideous, but that the patient is quite pretty - meaning that the aesthetic values of this world are all topsy turvy

Now, please list your favorite episodes! No spoilers of course! [Smile]

"Time Enough at Last," featuring Burgess Meredith.

"A Stop at Willoughby," featuring John Daly (father of Tim and Tyne).

"People Are Alike All Over," featuring Roddy McDowell

"The After Hours," featuring Anne Francis

"The Invaders," featuring Agnes Moorehead---and anybody who just knows her from "Bewitched" should see this episode.

"The Shelter"---an ensemble piece.

...and "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," featuring William Shatner---probably the best acting he ever did.

I used an online guide to remember episode titles, but may have misremembered an actor or two...

I am surprised you didn't list "To Serve Man", the one based on Damon Knights short story. [Smile]

Didn't thrill me as much as Damon Knight's original story---and I didn't see it until several years after I read it.

Probably I've forgotten to mention an episode or two---there were so many that were interesting---but these were the ones I remembered.

(And I should have said James Daly, not John...)

Should also have mentione how less than thrilled I was with their version of "It's a Good Life" that featured Billy "Lost in Space" Mumy. Exactly the same reason. Varied some from the original source material, too, as I recall...
