Awesome and very welcome announcement.

Can't wait to toss out those thin bendable two-sided DVD's.

Have the DVD and that's more than enough. All interesting episodes can be collectedon 2 DVDs.

Bought the box set in a sale and after having seen the episodes back then, I'm glad I hadn't had to shell out more.

Best episode "1000 days of the Dragon".

That said, I'm happy for the ones who longed for it. Your quest has now come to an end.

DS..

Hopefully this means they'll re-transfer the audio into some HD or lossless format, and not re-use the crappy dvd audio. Until then, I'm guardedly optimistic. Wonder if they'll include some bonus material - interviews from SciFi Channel, the original "Please Stand By" pilot, "The Unknown" pilot."
Would be great if "The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre" gets released. Or even "Fanfare for a Death Scene."

Last Child -- good suggestions. Quick, send an email to Kino Lorber while there's still enough time.

It's sounding like David J Schow and Tim Lucas may have some involvement. Keep your fingers crossed for some commentary tracks.

Great, thanks for doing that. If there's a specific person you emailed, can you remind them they need to keep the original full screen. Companies are tempted to zoom in the picture just to fit today's widescreen TVs.

"The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre"(and its alternate version "The Haunting") is at UCLA, tangled up with copyright issues. If only they could work those out...

Joseph Stefano's unsold pilot is The Haunted and the feature film version is The Ghost of Sierra de Cobre. The CBS telefilm was first shot by Robert TZ Stevens and then by Joseph Stefano and parts of its music score reappeared years later in the pilot of The Invaders.

Kino has already said that they will release in the original aspect ratio. Don't worry.

MGM has original elements for GHOST, but there might be clearance issues.

Jameson, thanks for the heads up. Did Kino post that info online (with other tidbits we could read), or is that something you heard on the sly?

I wonder if we should start a campaign for GHOST. I forget if the UCLA showing was a big success or not.

THE OUTER LIMITS - THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOUR BLU-RAY DISC PLAYER...
Kino Lorber to release high-def Blu-rays for Season 1 and Season 2!

Posted by David Lambert
6/07/2017



There is nothing wrong with your television set. Do not attempt to adjust the picture. We are controlling transmission. If we wish to make it louder, we will bring up the volume. If we wish to make it softer, we will tune it to a whisper. We will control the horizontal. We will control the vertical. We can roll the image, make it flutter. We can change the focus to a soft blur, or sharpen it to crystal clarity. For the next hour, sit quietly and we will control all that you see and hear. We repeat: there is nothing wrong with your television set. You are about to participate in a great adventure. You are about to experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to...The Outer Limits.



In 1963, Leslie Stevens IV (Incubus, The Marriage-Go-Round, It Takes a Thief, McCloud, Search, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Battlestar Galactica) created and executive produced the now-legendary scifi-horror anthology series, The Outer Limits. It only ran for 2 seasons (32 in the first, and 17 in the second) on ABC in black-and-white, but it inspired a lasting legacy...including Showtime's 1995 revival often referred to as "The New Outer Limits."

In 2002 and 2003, MGM released both seasons of The Outer Limits on DVD, as individual season sets. In 2007 they re-released the show on DVD, re-configuring it into Volume 1, Volume 2 and Volume 3 sets this time. Then in 2008 they released The Outer Limits - The Complete Original Series, bringing all 49 episodes together for the first time. Each of these are out of print now, and can be difficult to find outside of the "used DVD" market. But yesterday after third-party studio Kino Lorber made an exciting announcement!

Kino Lorber posted on their Facebook page that in Late 2017 they will release The Outer Limits - Season 1 (32 episodes on 8 discs) on high-res Blu-ray Disc! Then, in Early 2018 they will follow up with The Outer Limits - Season 2 on Blu-ray Disc (17 episodes on 5 discs). Pricing, details, package art and extras (if any) aren't available yet, but the studio plans to include English subtitles with each episode, which will be presented visually in the originally intended 1.37:1 aspect ratio (as they were originally seen on TV). KL also points out that their releases will be "Brand New HD Masters!" and that the episodes currently available for digital streaming in "high def" actually "are up-res of the SD masters" and that the program "has never been remastered in HD" before. So this is a first!

Our thanks to the MANY readers who emailed us about this late yesterday and overnight, beginning with Steve Benkin. Stay tuned, naturally, and we'll update you when further information becomes available! We now return control of your television set to you....

At least, we have sure technical data concerning the Blu-Ray:
English subtitles and the original full frame ratio.

Let's hope we get the three telefilms* extras and audio commentaries for selected episodes.
I wish we could also get the rare unsold pilot Mr. Kingston (1964) and we get an audio glimpse in the episode The Special One when the family watches the television.


* Please Stand By, The Unknown, The Haunted.

I have a multi-region Blu-ray player, but I still haven't plumbed it in yet (it means crawling behind the telly, & there could be spiders!). So, I'm hoping there's a European release, there's plenty of European companies that license from MGM.
