4.0 out of 5 stars Yesterday's tomorrows, volume 3 October 1, 2008
Pioneering sci-fi TV series TALES OF TOMORROW aired 85 episodes between 8/3/51 and 9/13/53 on the ABC-TV network. These half-hour stories often featured many famous Hollywood stars (like Boris Karloff, Franchot Tone and Burgess Meredith) as well as some up-and-comers (James Dean, Rod Steiger, Joanne Woodward, Leslie Nielsen). Special effects, props and scenery are minimal, yet this forerunner of TWILIGHT ZONE, THE OUTER LIMITS (and so many others) has a charm all its own.

The fourteen chapters on volume three are all from TOT's second season. Also available is TALES OF TOMORROW, COLLECTION ONE which contains 13 star-studded season #1 shows.

CONTENTS include titles, original airdates and principal actors.

4.0 out of 5 stars As TV was in 1952 April 21, 2009
The people who will appreciate these episodes are oldsters who may be interested in seeing some of the stars of yesterday they remember. Such as seeing a young Leslie Nielsen.

Please be advised that these episodes were done live as plays, thus they were not filmed as the I Love Lucy show was done. Thus the picture quality is far from ideal, but still watchable.

I only did this review for people who may have purchased a 3 episode set found in a $1 bargain bin, in a paper sleeve. These 3 episodes have a terrible picture quality and I didn't bother to watch. These 3 volumes are of a higher picture quality, but many people will still be put off.
Lastly, each episode includes all of the commercials, so episodes run 29 minutes.

I have the first volumes of Tales of Tomorrow and despite the low budgets and sets that look accordingly the stories still captivate.

This old series has charm of it's own. First they have so many stars that can act and very different types of stories. I have all three that is out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good story writing March 28, 2013
Verified Purchase
Although filmed in the early 1950s, if you can look past the obvious monetary restraints, the storylines for many of the episodes are pretty compelling. Some episodes seem to end abruptly (30 minute show) and I believe would have been better if they had been an hour instead. Overall a good buy and enjoyable show. One thing to note, these are "collections," and NOT entire seasons. I have been able to find episodes not included in these "collections" on various websites including youtube.

After viewing the first two collections I knew the quality of the third collection should also be very good, so wanted to add it to my collection and finish up the full set of programs. It did not disappoint me.
