    However, the abbreviated second season of this superior television series—sometimes the best SF stories ever to appear on TV—has not been announced.

    I adore this set. While I appreciate the economical approach MGM has taken with this set, I can't help but wonder if the video quality could be improved just a tad.

    Don't get me wrong, I love this DVD boxset deliriously, and I am revisting some "old friends" with incredible pleasure. I simply expected slightly crisper video quality. Still, I'm delighted with this set. I watch The Outer Limits every weekend now.

    But I want that second season, which includes the single finest made-for-television science-fiction dramatic presentation of all time (and, in my opinion, one of the ten best SF films of all time, regardless of length): "Demon with a Glass Hand," featuring a brilliant, Hugo Award-winning script by Harlan Ellison.

    We must have it on DVD.

    Jack, I'm with you on "Demon".... it's my all-time Outer Limits favorite. And I'm fully expecting the second season to appear on DVD at some point. Take a look at the spine of your season set one sets: Volume 1! [​IMG]
    And for the record, I'm more disturbed by the audio quality so far than that of the video (I've only watched a few episodes so far, though). After the marvellous audio work done on the later Twilight Zone DVDs, this set is something of a step down. Imagine all the distortion we'll hear on those season two Harry Lubin scores....
