"Stranger Than Science" Redux
4 August 2012 | by TheKingOfLasVegasSee all my reviews

As a kid in the sixties, I was gobbling up scifi novels like potato chips (nobody can eat just one) and getting kinda warped in the process. Then one day my scifi Book Of The Month Club offered up a nonfiction selection by Frank Edwards called "Stranger Than Science," a collection of (allegedly) TRUE tales that mainstream media had ignored, that were weird, DISTURBING, and had this li'l bug-eyed boy TERRIFIED under the sheets with the book & a flashlight. And there were sequels, ALL of which I gobbled up. In the half-century or so since, barely any of the stories have ever been exposed outside of those pages...UNTIL NOW! I'll pretty much swear that this series is inspired by those books (maybe that's even acknowledged in the credits, but the way credits get dashed aside nowadays, who can tell?). But when an episode delved into the (alleged) saga of missing cosmonauts from the early Soviet space program (which I'd NEVER heard anywhere except "Stranger Than Science," and which has haunted my dreams ever since), I knew I'd come home. And if you need more reasons to watch, John Noble (from "Fringe") makes for the CREEPIEST host I've ever seen (one part Rod Serling to one part Hannibal Lecter). I'm hooked!
