Trivia

In contrast to the standard procedure in the 1960s, the first season was filmed in color and to cut costs the second season was in black & white. The producers had originally thought that color TV would progress faster than it did. See more »

Excellent series of the 1950's!
9 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was only about 6 or 7 years old when I first watched Science Fiction Theater. Even my folks watched it. It is a fantastic series, and found where I might purchase it, but I don't know if I want to put out $80.00 or not for the two seasons! I sat on the edge of my seat every time it showed, totally enthralled with every episode. True, it wasn't always fiction, but even when the episodes didn't exactly fit with the Science Fiction Theater genre, it still provided an engaging show. For even then, much of the science fiction was still based on some simple fact. I would recommend anyone interested in the old SF series programs, Science Fiction Theater is one. Don't forget Commando Cody.
