Hey, what did you lurking horrors think of the recent double-size Outer Limits issue of Cinefantastique? Was it worth the big bucks you paid for it? Anything in it jump out at you as extremely interesting? Inquiring minds want to know. "It is said that Music is a universal language, crossing the barriers of culture, age, and language. Perhaps, eventually, we will learn that it also spans those of time... and space."

Heck, I spend more than that ($15) a day just on beer and brat's...

actually , there was plenty of good pictures, a few decent articles and they included credits and behind the scenes info on the first three seasons of the New OL, but I was a little annoyed to find they didn't do an episode guide to the older OL as well. But, as the saying goes, it has been done before! THE COOLEST THING ABOUT IT WAS THE EXCESS OF PHOTOs and behind the scenes stuff. The lamest thing about it was the silly questions they asked everyone about what their favorite episode of the old series was. That got a little empty. But all in all, I'd say yes, definitely worth the money.

Yeah, Ive got the Schow OL COMPANION, and if you have that, you don't need any more ep guides to the old series. >THE COOLEST THING ABOUT IT WAS THE EXCESS OF PHOTOs and behind the scenes >stuff. The lamest thing about it was the silly questions they asked everyone >about what their favorite episode of the old series was. "Behind the scenes stuff"? Like what in particular?

A lot of information behind the scenes. Lot. I just opened the magazine at random and up came a behind the scenes article on "The Message" which was specifically wrote for Marly Matlin, the deaf lady. It talks about the original ending to the story, and how they changed it, and why. Then on page 39, an article about how Jospeph Stefano updated A Feasibility Study. then a behind the scenes article on the man behind the control voice. Then an article on writer Brad Wright and the episode The Light Brigade. and article on the graphic layouts of OL; an article on the pilot "The Sandkings" An article on Brad Wright's "bottle" show Trial by Fire; and a lot more. An article about Steven barnes great episode "A Stich in Time" Tons of info about various directors, etc.etc., Then afterwords, an article about Poltergeist the Legacy, made by same production people. In short, if you are a great fan of the show, it's definitely worth the 12.00 bucks.

I think the original ending was better, regardless of what R. Lewis thinks. But it worked ok with the rewritten conclusion, too. (But then I think Gwyllm Griffiths should have been reduced to pre-protoplasmic slime, too.) "It is said that Music is a universal language, crossing the barriers of culture, age, and language.

For all us poor desilote souls with only two cents to our names, think you could fill us in as to what the original ending was? I loved "The Message" and actually became a big Marley Maitlin fan because of it. JPC

I loved "The >Message" and actually became a big Marley Maitlin fan because of it. OK: Either they dont build the laser or it gets destroyed by Jennifer's raging husband. The ship appears in the skies and all are certain to see it go on past, to its destruction.... when suddenly, from some other part of the city, a laser fires into the sky. Another one. One from below the horizon. The sky is on fire with lasers, and the ship is illuminated, transfigured, and its course altered. It flies off safely. Jennifer realizes she was not the only one to hear the message, and that all over the world, people have worked in faith, believing that this thing is true. I feel that would have been much more poetic and Outer Limitsy, but the ending that was aired is certainly not a disaster or anything.

original ending had Marly's character fail to send laser, but then they see other lasers firing, from many other points of the world. Other people had heard the message too!
