I looked forward to every episode of this now-ancient HBO series. I guess I should pick up the DVD set one of these days. Not all episodes were of equal quality, and the budgets were often appalling. But when the stories adhered to the original source material, they couldn't be beat -- except maybe by the first few seasons of the original TWILIGHT ZONE. This is the series that adopted A SOUND OF THUNDER, one of Bradbury's very best short stories, and did an excellent job with it. Also, while Bradbury was no Rod Serling, his quavery intro to each episode was always something to look forward to. I could be mistaken, but I seem to recall some episodes were adapted from stories that had been earlier adapted for use on the original TWILIGHT ZONE.
