Skeptical Arthur and his encounter with weirdness.
17 May 2018 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

"One Step Beyond" was an old TV series that dealt with the supernatural. To enjoy it the most, it would help if you believe in things like ESP, precognition and the like. I don't...but still found "Emergency Only" entertaining and worth seeing.

At a dinner party, Arthur Douglas is introduced to a woman who can apparently see the future. He thinks she's a phony and encourages her to tell him his future...just so he can laugh when none of it comes true. Amazingly, however, just the opposite happens...it ALL comes true and it scares the pants off Artie!

The reason this one worked was that it was so well written...especially the surprise ending. Overall, this one is worth seeing...whether you are a skeptic (yup) or not. And, all the episodes are available for free download from archive.org....a site often linked to IMDB.
