Outer Limits (tv)

The Boston Phoenix

DIRECTED BY: Zanti Misfits

REVIEWED: 10-27-97

The Outer Limits (1963-65; 49 episodes) leans more heavily on visitors from other planets than does The Twilight Zone. The series also has more camp value, partly because of its hour length. (The longer it takes to get to the scary stuff, the greater the risk of ponderous dialogue and ludicrous scientific explanations.) Nearly all the episodes can be found in video stores. One of the most entertaining is "The Zanti Misfits," about an antlike race of aliens who want to use Earth as a penal colony.
