Harry,

Is there a definitive compendium you would recommend on One Step Beyond?  I own several companions/compendiums detailing other series (The Outer Limits / Schow and various Trek books come to mind), and wouldn't mind obtaining one of the better ones for One Step Beyond.

I watched The Dead Part Of the House recently.  It was neat seeing some TOS alumni (Joanne Linville); I always relish seeing characters I recognize from other shows, particularly in their earlier work.

I've not found one, but then I haven't researched it much.  The closest thing I have as a compendium for ONE STEP BEYOND is the chapter in FANTASTIC TELEVISION.  I suppose there could be some online sites that would be more detailed than that.

McFarland and Company has published a book about the series, but it's a bit pricey:

To be honest I have all the definitive seasons of Twilight Zone and the Complete Outer Limits Set, and so far all releases of Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and I have never heard of One Step Beyond! It was odd... I spotted it on the shelf at Best Buy and looked it over, then went over to their APPLE area and looked it up on imdb.com and it got my attention, so I then noticed that WalMart.com had it listed around 34.86 (BB 39.99) and took it to custumer service and told them I wanted to match the WalMart price they just looked it up and matched it.

I watched the EXT. Pilot Bride Possessed and it was decent. I didn't hate it. I will buy the last two seasons if paramount releases them as actual seasons. Hopefully it sells well enough.

Many thanks. The customer reviews of the work seem positive.

Thanks as well, Harry-N.

I also noticed that Paramount uses a blurb from that book's author, John Kenneth Muir, on the cover sticker. 
BARBARA WRIGHT: You're from Earth?
MORTON DILL: No... no, ma'am, I... I'm from Alabama.

It's a treat to see the "next week" promos at the conclusion of each episode.

     The extended pilot looks to be from 16mm while the rest of the episodes look to be remastered 35mm.

The only difference is a longer and different Newland introduction, after seeing that bit, I suggest going with the remastered version when watching.

Newland's longer introduction is somewhat remeniscent of Rod Serling's introduction to the CBS network executives, where he describes different scenarios of what could end up in upcoming shows.  In Newland's case, he seems to be telling us which stories of the supernatural could have been chosen for the pilot.

I am still hoping for further seasons of this series, I had never ever heard of it until I stumbled across it at Best Buy and decided to give it a try. I think the set was worth every penny. No longer sitting in public domain hell.

If you like Twilight Zone, Outer Limits type shows Please don't pass up purchasing this set.

Maybe they will announce another season for this Fall/ Halloween season.

It's a great series for sure, hope to see more of it soon! I prefer it myself to both Outer Limits and Twilight Zone.

I would feel it both odd and a cheat by Paramount if they hook people on buying the first season and then don't release the rest.  I too am hoping for Season Two to be out soon!  Any word yet?

Yeah, I'm hoping too they haven't forgotten it completely but maybe saved it for this Halloween as I think Paramount's not really having an awful lot of classic genre (television) titles in their possession, so here's a chance I don't think they should pass up being that they own this popular show. Hopefully it's been remastered/HD-transferred.

Gary, I hope you are wrong and they release Second Season by October.  There will be a lot of unhappy people who put down a high price for the Official First Season only to get ripped off unable to complete a series they started!  It isn't like they didn't sell any and if supply and demand are an issue, press few for the few who want it or... go the alternate route of burn on demand like the Warner Archives.

I'm hoping for a crack in the crystal ball as well. I'm not sure what CBS/P is thinking on this one, but I'm not quite convinced they have given up. It is worth commenting that A episode of One Step Beyond will be included on the Blu-Ray for Season One of Twilight Zone, so maybe they're hoping for a spike in sales based of BR sales of Zone to get another season out for One Step Beyond.


Or I may have just hit my head very hard.

Well, CBS has been stretching out the classic tv releases, so who knows when the next OSB release might be - look at the gap between seasons 4 and for of Have Gun,Wll Travel.

I looked at the Blu-Ray specs of Twilight Zone and I don't see any One Step Beyond episode on that list.  Which episode was rumored to be included?

OK, time to admit a mis-read that I should have checked on BEFORE I dd the posts -  it's not One Step Beyond, it's Tales of Tomorrow included with Twilight Zone Blu-Ray. My apologies for the mistake. Anyway, it's a Tales of Tomorrow episode called What You Need.
