A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Series of unrelated short stories covering elements of crime, horror, drama, and comedy about people of different backgrounds committing murders, suicides, thefts, and other sorts of crime caused by certain motivations, perceived or not.
An updated version of the famous 1959 television series created by Rod Serling. Each week presents one to three tales about some unusual situation that turns out to be even more unusual than initially suspected. Whether the tone of the story is horror, suspense, or humor, there is always a surprise twist at the end.Written by

Showrunner Philip DeGuere, Jr. shared the same agent as fantasy writer, George R.R. Martin. The agent provided a copy of Martin's fourth novel, "The Armageddon Rag", a rock and roll dark fantasy, to DeGuere because he was a Grateful Dead fan. DeGuere liked the novel so much that he planned to write and direct an adaptation, but the novel failed in sales. DeGuere and Martin stayed friends, and DeGuere recruited Martin for his first Hollywood position as a staff writer in this Twilight Zone outing. See more »
Original network episodes ran one hour, with two or three stories per instalment. These episodes were reedited into half hour episodes for syndication along with newly produced half-hour episodes, with each half hour consisting of a single story from the original one-hour version. See more »
I honestly don't understand why someone would give a negative review for this show. To say it was "garbage" -as one commenter stated- is very inaccurate. I watched this show as a child...in fact, I grew up on it. The story lines were dark and original. The acting was actually pretty good in my estimation. Especially in comparison to the overabundance of bad acting in that day. The stories were so eerie and unique that they stayed in my head decades after I saw them. I actually had the pleasure of watching several episodes at a friends house recently and loved the nostalgic feelings they brought back. They were even more enjoyable now that I am older. I was able to pick up on the stuff that I had missed as a kid. My faves are the one about the man that was court ordered to be "invisible" for a year, the woman that had a magic necklace and could freeze the world by saying "shut up!", the woman that got offered a box with a button in it...and if she pressed the button she would win a large sum of money...but then a stranger had to be killed and SO many others!
