JFD453: The Outer Limits (The Sixth Finger, The Zanti Misfits, The Mutant)
There is nothing wrong with your smartphone. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery of Sci-Fi-ebruary which reaches from the inner mind to... The Outer Limits.
This week, we dive into three classic episodes from the black & white, creature-heavy science fiction television show that brought monsters and aliens into American homes in the 1960's.
Up first, a scientist experiments on a man in an effort to speed up evolution with unexpected results in The Sixth Finger from 1963.
Then, a race of bug-like aliens decide to dispose of their undesirables on planet Earth in The Zanti Misfits also from 1963.
And finally, the crew of an expedition to another planet begins to plot against the mind-reading, bug-eyed captain (played by Warren Oates!) in The Mutant from 1964.
All this plus witty banter between friends, roller coasters chat, $40 VHS mystery packs, the end of blu-ray players?, Kung-Fu Hustle love, this week's blu-rays and so much more.
