Even though this season lacked the genius of Joseph Stefano, Leslie Stevens and Dominic Frontiere there are still some good stories.
"Demon with a Glass Hand"* for all it's stagey stylized appearance is still in my eyes, "A work of art".
Come to think about it, it IS the stagey stylized look that makes this episode stand out.
(If I could I would rate this story 5 stars alone)
"Soldier"* is still very good. Where,"Terminator" got it's influence is pretty obvious.
My now ex-wife, who was not a sci-fi fan sat glued to her seat during the Human interest story that was, "The Premonition".
And like most adult males, the little boy in me likes a good monster story and, "The Invisible Enemy" hits the spot.
(I always wondered how they got that monster sand shark to come out of the sand like that, and thanks to, "The Outer Limits Official Companion" I finally know, it's clever stuff.)
"The Inheritors" still brings a lump to the throat of this, "stiff upper lip" Britisher.(Especially part 2.)
~~~~
In summing up, a flawed set of some good some average stories, but at least this show was prepared to take risks in story format terms, and is still a hundred times better then the full of boreingly stereotypical characters and computer generated effects rubbish that is today's Sci-Fi shows!
17, 50 minute episodes.
Originally broadcast:~19/9/64-16/1/65.
My region 2 version consists of 5 discs,(single-sided)Which play perfectly.
I also have the Region 1 releases of both seasons but I no longer play them as they've started to crack.
(I really dislike double sided discs.)
~~~~
TRIVIA:~The actress who play's Consuelo Biros in "Demon with a Glass Hand" (Arlene Martel),three years later played the part of Mr Spock's wife to be, T'Pring in the Star Trek episode, Amok Time.
* Both Hugo Award winners.

The original series of THE OUTER LIMITS was first broadcast in the early 1960's, and thankfully there's no significant downgrade from the first season in this second season (with the 1st season remaining my favourite overall). The tales remain a winning blend of the unusual/unknown and sci-fi. The stories vary from OK to very good, with some intelligent scripts and solid, thought-provoking dialogue.

One of my personal favourite episodes here has to be 'I, Robot' in which the robot of the title is put on trial after being accused of the murder of it's creator, the central themes of prejudice and fear are subtly handled. I'm a real sucker for emotional endings, and the climax to this proverbial little gem is both touching and moving. While reading the other reviews, I can see that I'm not the only one to notice that the opening episode 'Soldier' is a precursor to Arnold Schwarznegger's 'The Terminator'.

'The Invisible Enemy' happens to be a vibration-sensitive carnivorous monster lurking below the sandy Martian surface, shades of 'Tremors' for the terrified Astronaut mission to the red planet. The seventeen, 50-minute episodes include the two-part 'The Inheritors' in which Robert Duvall investigates the mysterious 'infection' of four men whose minds have been infiltrated by an alien intelligence.

The performances are good in this enjoyable series, which strikes a nice balance between the intelligent and entertaining. As with the first series, the black and white prints used for this Region 2 collection are good, there are no extras.

The soundtrack languages are: English, French.
The subtitle languages are: English, Dutch, French.

I remember seeing re-runs of The Outer Limits on the BBC so I purchased both sets, as I don't actually have that much interest in the output of TV today. There are some good, some not so good episodes, but none I would class as bad, and in general I feel it is a very good series, still retaining the atmosphere I tend to associate with it from days now past. Unlike much of modern TV I actually remember the stories, often weeks after watching them, which must be a good sign that something is right with the series. After watching both series though I still thought I remembered other episodes which were not included, however, these might have been from another series based on similar story lines. If you are also bored with the output of current TV and like a touch of the unusual, you might also like to open the doors of The Outer Limits.

Considering the time 1960`s this dvd box set holds many thought provoking stories and still very much of value in the present day. Great stuff and well worth buying.

In many ways this second season of the original Outer Limits is superior to the 1st season. In Season 1 you got 32 episodes -- 17 really good ones, and 15 just making up the numbers. In this 2nd season you get the 17 really good episodes without the weak episodes making up the numbers. So a lower price for less episodes, and therefore better value for money.

The often overlooked pure Science Fiction cousin to The Twilight Zone, this ran originally on American Television between 1962 and 1964.

Only 49 episodes were made, this being the shorter second season of 17 x 50 minute episodes.

More than a monster of the week show it touched on philosophy, politics, warfare, love and the human condition in a changing and dangerous world, namely The Cold War.

Shame it got cancelled mid season in 1964, it was another 2 years before another intelligent Science Fiction series appeared on American Television, namely Star Trek.

Very well written with excellent guest stars, many of whom were unknowns at the time who went on to appear on other shows.

Oh and don't miss the Harlan Ellison episodes Demon With a Glass Hand starring Robert Culp and Soldier starring Michael Ansara which was the idea for The Terminator movie!

It came back again in the mid 1990's and ran for a highly successful 7 years in syndication.

I wouldn't say the original was better, they're both good.

Very highly recommended, a must buy.
