By FrKurt Messick HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on Feb. 14 2006
I am going to differ with many of my fellow reviewers regarding the format here: I have long enjoyed the series 'Outer Limits', both the old series and the new series, but was not sure if I would ever find the means to collect all of the seasons. Perhaps it is because many of my favourite episodes are to be found in this collection that I don't mind the topical selection method, but it does serve to give a good overview of the several years of the new 'Outer Limits' series.
There are six discs in this collection, each with six episodes, arranged around a theme - transformation/mutation, time travel, android/robots, aliens in the world, death/afterlife, and sex in science fiction; thus, 36 one-hour episodes in all (well over a whole season's offerings). My favourite episodes include 'I, Robot', starring Leonard Nimoy (derivative of an Isaac Asimov idea), 'The Grell' (which highlights issues of xenophobia and community inclusion in a unique way), and 'Human Operators' (with the voice of Malcolm McDowell, who gives a stellar performance without ever being on screen).
The original series of the 'Outer Limits' was a groundbreaking television production, testing limits and innovating ways of adapting to the still relatively new medium of television. The new series has much better production values, but apart from the occasional nudity (which is censored for broadcast, but was preserved on the original cable offering and again on DVD format), the series is no longer an innovative one - most of the stories seem at home on the screen, and while they are interesting, they don't break new ground. Perhaps that is indicative of how much both public awareness and entertainment has progress in the past generation.

I love this series. I still watch it daily on cable. This is a nice collection of some of the better episodes. It has several DVDs covering different subjects. For example, there's a DVD on time travel, and it has several episodes that had to do with time travel. It's also nice to see episodes uncensored they way they were originally intended to be seen.

HASH(0xa0ff063c) out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings, Not a Mixed Review March 8 2005
By Choo Choo 62 - Published on Amazon.com
I do not believe in reviewing something that has not yet been released, but I have to express my dismay that the release of these Outer Limits episodes is a strong indication that we devoted fans of the series will be deprived of full season releases, at least for the foreseeable future.

We are truly between a rock and a hard place. If these episodes sell well, then we are endorsing this method of releasing episodes by theme. If they do not sell well, then the danger is no more Outer Limits releases.

I can only submit this with the slight and vague hope that someone with some influence may read this and reconsider.

Not everyone is a fan of the new Outer Limits series, but I believe it was generally well done, at least when it was on Showtime. In a perverse way, the move to the Sci-Fi channel parallels the original series season two, where a new production team compromised the show, yet still produced some episodes of quality.

May someone please take "Control" of MGM DVD production and give us full seasons. I'll be glad to stand by.

HASH(0xa0f1bab0) out of 5 stars More themed discs coming out March 29 2005
By J. Carlin - Published on Amazon.com
According to the MGM site, this will be a 6 discs set that includes the previously released Sex & SciFi and Time Travel discs, along with 4 new themed DVDs also available seperately:

Aliens Among Us Collection

"Quality of Mercy," "Afterlife," "The Grell," "Relativity Theory," "Alien Shop," "Beyond the Veil"

Fantastic Androids & Robots Collection

"I, Robot," "The Hunt," "Resurrection," "The Camp," "Glitch," "Small Friends"

Mutation & Transformation Collection

"The New Breed," "Descent," "The Joining," "Double Helix," "The Gun," "The Inheritors"

Death & Beyond Collection

"The Second Soul," "The Other Side," "New Lease," "Essence of Life," "Human Trials," "Black Box"

I give it a 3 stars mostly because I glad they're releasing some, but not a big fan of this "piecemeal" thing. There's a huge number of great episodes they're skipping over entirely.

HASH(0xa1aa1f0c) out of 5 stars Very Disappointed May 3 2005
By psychdan - Published on Amazon.com
The Outer Limits-The New Series is one of the greatest science fiction/horror television shows that I've seen, and I've been patiently waiting for MGM to produce this show in DVD season sets as they have done for the original series. I am extremely disappointed in the decisions they have been making regarding the release of this series. I will NOT buy this 6 disc set. I reiterate the words of a previous reviewer when I say that people do enjoy this series and would probably buy this, but not when it's produced with such incompetent negligence and disrepect for the fanbase. I hope people will boycott this edition lest it be a subtle marketing ploy (often done by George Lucas with his orginal Star Wars movies) to hook devoted customers into buying this edition, and then to release a set in season format with additional episodes among those that have already been released. Get your act together, MGM.

HASH(0xa0feaaa4) out of 5 stars i wish i recorded these when i had chance June 18 2005
By Rob_420 - Published on Amazon.com
MGM again shows their total lack of respect for the outer limits fans . as for me i will not buy this crap or any other MGM movies/shows until a true box set comes out . wish i recorded them all when i had chance. maybe its time we boycotted MGM sense money over fans seems to be the way they would have it. when they get poor FOX a outstanding example of how good things can be when u consider fans over profit, will buy them out and give us what we all want for some seven years now.

HASH(0xa132f870) out of 5 stars Plumbers make better decisions than studio executives April 18 2005
By ConstantConsumer - Published on Amazon.com
I so titled my review because I recently had a plumber out who asked what I wanted and then did it. He didn't do part of the job or any old job he wanted to and charge me the same. What he did was what I needed. He actually did more than I asked for the same price. We in the DVD purchasing public call such things "extras."
MGM decision makers, however, cannot seem to get up to the intellect of my plumber. What they are pumping our way is a diluted version of what we want. It makes as much sense - to put it in terms studio executives understand - as paying for 24 produced episodes a year and only broadcasting ten.
I'm not buying these. Though I love the series and have gone to great pains just to watch every episode and, in general, am a television DVD enthusiast having even purchased the "Land of the Lost" offerings, I'm not spending money to condone lobotomized thinking.
The only thing more disturbing would be if they were offering the censored versions.
Just in case MGM is reading this, you're screwing up. These will sell, but you've lost a huge chunk of marketing potential. Trust me, I know of what I speak. DVD packages of serialized television are a vein just beginning to be tapped. But loyal fans will not be toyed with. Doing so will dissolve your base like Alka-Seltzer in water. But, hey, why listen to me. I'm just a fan. With money. And once you lose your job, I can put you in touch with my plumber. I'm sure he could use an assistant with your ideas of how to pump out waste.
