(*The "Control Voice" quote*) - "There is nothing wrong with your television set. We are controlling transmission. For the next hour you will experience the awe and mystery which reaches from the inner mind to.... The Outer Limits!"
With its emphasis clearly placed on the genre of SyFy - "The Outer Limits" was a weekly TV series that ran for just 2 seasons (1963-1965). There's no question about it that this program was in direct competition with "The Twilight Zone".
So - If you are willing to cut "The Outer Limits" some serious slack, then, you are most certain to get at least some sort of enjoyment out of watching it. Just don't set your standards too high and you won't be too disappointed with what it has to offer.
