Dr. Simon Holm: [Waves Mrs. Cashman back] Stay there! I'm a doctor. Are you hurt?

Before Under The Dome
10 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A typical American street of the 1960s is taken over by aliens.

This one has moments that will stay forever locked in the memory: the sick guy in the empty house, the car in the fog, the aliens first appearing, the look of the street, the look of the fog, etc.

I can think of several Outer Limits shows I like more than this one but there is no question that the general look of the episode is a knockout! Perhaps this hour could have used a bit more spark in it but it must of scared the hell out of people way back in 1964.

A 1964 version of TV's Under The Dome you might say. But done in one hour instead of several hours.
