Greetings ng, New here, having drifted over from Alt.TV.Prisoner. I'd like to know the title of this episode: A high-pressured corporate Android builder ( and abusive husband) seems to put his own family in harm's way when he takes an android prototype into his own household as a nanny for his child. His chief designer is still hopelessly hung up on the exec's wife ( played by that Absolutely gorgeous blond who had occasional parts on Northern Exposure- God! she's fantastic). Ends up, the exec is iced ( by the designer?) and he thinks he's in like Flint when he realizes that the wife is an android too. Please kind people, tell me the name of the ep. and the actress who plays the wife. Accept my thanks in advance, Cathexis

I liked this episode -- Mary 25, as others have pointed out -- very much. But I thought that Mary was more attractive than the "wife." Sent via Deja.com http://www.deja.com/ Before you buy.

> But I thought that Mary was more attractive than the "wife." Who could argue that? Sofia Shinas is one of the world's greatest natural resources. So to speak. I believe it was Richard Lewis who talked to her prior to her original appearance in VALERIE 23 about the nudity in the ep. Would she have a problem with it, etc. Her reply: "It's the Outer Limits." I don't know what that means, and neither does Lewis, since there had never been nudity in anything called The Outer Limits up to that time, but that's what she said, and she had no problem with it.

Thanks for the anecdote. I haven't seen Valerie 23 yet (I don't have cable, just a friend who occasionally manages to tape OL for me), but if Shinas is in it, I'm going to seek it out. She is something to behold. I wonder what her "It's the Outer Limits" comment meant. Did she mean that she respected the show -- that, in other words, there'd be nothing "cheap" about being nude in OL? Or did she mean that the show is "out there," so anything goes? > > "What makes possible the writing of good music, beyond that talent for handling > sound that is required for being a musician at all, is emotional sincerity and > intellectual honesty." ---- Virgil Thomson; "The Art of Judging Music" > Another good sig.

>Thanks for the anecdote. I haven't seen Valerie 23 yet (I don't >have cable, just a friend who occasionally manages to tape OL for me), >but if Shinas is in it, I'm going to seek it out. It was the second episode of the new OL aired and the original Innobotics Story; since then the dread robotics company has appeared in at least 3 more eps, despite the fact that their bots have a success rate something akin to that of Acme Jet Roller Skates. Those eps were Valerie 23, Resurrection, Mary 25 and In Our Own Image. Shinas appears in all but Resurrection (though only in a CLIP in "In Our Own Image".) I have an outline for an OL script designed around an Innobotics product, in fact. Though mine wouldn't star Sofia Shinas. However, there is an Innobotics employee in it who says " Yes, in the early days of the company there were some failures, some spectacular failures, but not any more." As a bit of an homage to the other eps, so to speak.

>How is Innobotics mentioned in "Resurrection"? I know that episode >deals with an android takeover of the Earth, but is Innobotics >specifically referred to by name? The android village is an Innobotics project. There's a sign up at the outskirts of the village that says something like "The Village Of the Future, from INNOBOTICS" or some such advertising junk. The female droid, Heather Graham, also tells Cain that he has to get into "the Innobotics facility" to deactivate the Military Droids.

>So the androids in "Resurrection" haven't really taken over the whole >Earth, and there wasn't a plague that wiped out all the humans, and all >that? Yes, humans wiped themselves out with the plague. The androids are the only sentients left on earth until the creation of Cain. But they haven't taken over the whole earth; they have just taken over the parts near the Village where they were created. They were obviously already functioning when the plague destroyed humanity.

>So what is the proper 'order' for the Innobotics series of episodes? My >guess would be: Valerie 23, Mary 25, In Our Own Image, then the >'finale' Resurrection. Is this true? If there is supposed to be an order, that would be it. My currently theoretical story, "Timmy", would come between Image and Resurrection. Bots are in pretty much common usage in my plot, leased from the Innobotics Corp, and there are various kinds, from the typically humanoid (like Val, Mary and Mac) to the more obviously machine (like Moloch, although his type of bot doesn't appear in my story). I guess I'm gonna write the thing regardless of OL policy (They will accept no unsolicited material submitted without an agent), using another name for the company.

Has anyone been successfull in submitting a script before? And if so (that is if it was actually produced / greenlighted), which episode(s)?

>Has anyone been successfull in submitting a script >before? Oh, it can be done, but ONLY through an agent. MGM accepts NO scripts save through acknowledged agencies.

I know I heard that Star Trek (whether it was a perticular incarnation of trek I dunno) was accepting submittions, but I have no idea if any were actually produced.
