Trivia

The title comes from "A Midsummer Night's Dream," Act V, Scene i, "The poet's eye, in a fine frenzy rolling, /Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven; /And, as imagination bodies forth /The forms of things unknown, the poet's pen /Turns them to shapes, and gives to airy nothing /A local habitation and a name."

Style Over Substance
11 July 2014 | by See all my reviews

A time machine in an oddball house (with a man-from-uncle inside) create terror.

This is one of my top five episodes of the whole series. It was a pilot for a never made series, and as we all know pilots are made with twice the money and twice the filming time of a regular TV episode...it shows here!

The care and attention that went into filming this hour will blow your mind. The direction, camera angles, lighting, photography, acting and musical score are of motion picture standard all the way.

There is a lot of style over substance going on here, I can't really say the basic story is the best you will see in the whole Outer Limits series, but you just get sucked into the general look of it and the sound of it. I return to this episode every couple of years with repeat viewings.
