Okay, my thoughts on Out of the Unknown
, because, hey, despite my embarrassment at my lack of science education and unfortunate introductions to anthologies I once read, I've decided that I am still allowed to like and have opinions on science fiction. However, it's mid-century stuff, so this probably barely counts as a rebellion, but given that I simply can't read things like this at the moment, it's lovely to have even this I can watch.
And let's just say - can you imagine any TV station now deciding to put out an anthology of serious SF plays based on current SF stories and novels? But back in the 60s, Irene Shubik thought it'd be cool and so did Sydney Newman, so here we have another series by Sydney Newman and a female producer that unfortunately got partly burninated by people.
Here goes - some brief reactions to the remaining episodes, without being spoilery! (Possibly a pointless exercise, but here goes!)( Disc 1: No Place Like Earth, The Counterfeit Man, Stranger in the Family & The Dead Past )
