Thirty Years Later: Shaft In Space?
The Outer Limits was my second favorite television show when I was a kid. (The first was Twilight Zone) and last night I was, for the first time in maybe forty years, watching the episode that first knocked my socks off, “The Zanti Misfits.” Still holds up, and an early appearance by a batshit Bruce Dern just makes it all sweeter. Anyway, I’ve been watching that early television stuff, and in the back of my head it occurred to me that my younger self had pretty damned good taste in television. But also that that young kid had to filter a LOT.
