We are truly between a rock and a hard place. If these episodes sell well, then we are endorsing this method of releasing episodes by theme. If they do not sell well, then the danger is no more Outer Limits releases.
I can only submit this with the slight and vague hope that someone with some influence may read this and reconsider.
Not everyone is a fan of the new Outer Limits series, but I believe it was generally well done, at least when it was on Showtime. In a perverse way, the move to the Sci-Fi channel parallels the original series season two, where a new production team compromised the show, yet still produced some episodes of quality.
May someone please take "Control" of MGM DVD production and give us full seasons. I'll be glad to stand by.

I give it a 3 stars mostly because I glad they're releasing some, but not a big fan of this "piecemeal" thing. There's a huge number of great episodes they're skipping over entirely.
MGM decision makers, however, cannot seem to get up to the intellect of my plumber. What they are pumping our way is a diluted version of what we want. It makes as much sense - to put it in terms studio executives understand - as paying for 24 produced episodes a year and only broadcasting ten.
I'm not buying these. Though I love the series and have gone to great pains just to watch every episode and, in general, am a television DVD enthusiast having even purchased the "Land of the Lost" offerings, I'm not spending money to condone lobotomized thinking.
The only thing more disturbing would be if they were offering the censored versions.
Just in case MGM is reading this, you're screwing up. These will sell, but you've lost a huge chunk of marketing potential. Trust me, I know of what I speak. DVD packages of serialized television are a vein just beginning to be tapped. But loyal fans will not be toyed with. Doing so will dissolve your base like Alka-Seltzer in water. But, hey, why listen to me. I'm just a fan. With money. And once you lose your job, I can put you in touch with my plumber. I'm sure he could use an assistant with your ideas of how to pump out waste.
"The Outer Limits" was a remarkable anthology series, but what will happen to the many episodes that aren't thematically related to others? Or (unlikely as it seems), will all 100 episodes somehow be pigeonholed into thematic units? It makes no sense.
Until this outstanding and unique series is released in the chronological order of their original airing and we can see this series as it was meant to be seen, I'd avoid these DVD releases.

Could be the 1985 version of "The Twilight Zone". Check out the descriptions of the episodes "A Message From Charity" and "To See the Invisible Man" to see if these are the episodes you're thinking of.
