The "galaxybeing" did a good job of describing this series and did so with a good deal more specificity than I could. The show was genuinely frightening. I do remember the episode about the love affair with the headless "electric woman". It gave me nightmares as a child. One of the most chilling things about the show (I hope I'm remembering this correctly) was the lead in at the beginning. I recall hands sticking up out of sand and writhing to the tempo of beatnik bongo drums. As the drum crescendo increased in intensity, the hands would burn up.

No wonder it lasted just fourteen episodes in the days of Ward and June Cleaver! Definitely ahead of its time.
