Storyline

A distant planet teleports a young man and woman from an apartment building to compete in a gladiatorial contest. For the aliens it's just an amusing jungle reality show, but if the humans fail, Earth will be destroyed. The woman is desperate to save Earth, but the man is a vicious, petty crook on the run, who has little to lose, but doesn't care about humanity's fate. Written by David Stevens

Fun And Games Before Star Trek
10 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A guy and girl fight for life, when playing a game on another planet.

1966 Star Trek stole a lot from this hour, in fact after spending time on these IMDb reviews of The Outer Limits it would seem Trek took one hell of a lot from The Outer Limits.

I wonder how many of those "Trekkers" know that Trek was often going Where The Outer Limits Had Gone Before???

Fun And Games is a good looking hour but I would say Trek did it best. It would seem nearly all Outer Limits aliens have the same voice??? Thankfully he sounds cool to me but it would of helped if Lost In Space's Ron Gans helped with the voice-over work sometimes.
