In My Own Words:
I'm a self-published author, veteran reader and film buff. I lived through the sixties and remember them vividly.

Music, particularly blues, rock, and jazz.

Film: virtually any genre except for splatter flicks, anything featuring torture, or porn.

Books: I used to read a great deal of SF, before it became so pretentious. Currently, some of my favorite writer… Read more

Outer Limits - The Complete Season 4 (Bilingual)

Five years after MGM released Season 1 in the U.S., the rest of the series is being issued in Canada. It's great to have these episodes, several of which I missed when they were originally broadcast.

Unfortunately, these are the edited versions. The series was originally shown on Showtime, and included some brief nudity and an occasional four-letter expletive. Edited versions were then prepared for syndication, with the nudity and strong language edited out, and commercial breaks inserted.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not widescreen, July 2 2004
These brawn-and-sandal classics are, unfortunately, presented here in so-called "full" frame, 1.33:1. Since they were shot in a Cinemascope-like format, 2.35:1, more than half the original image is lost. This is not an acceptable way to view an epic. Purchase not recommended.
Eventually someone will release a widescreen version; all the more reason to send the message to labels like this one: No widescreen, no sale!
