This episode explores how storytellers Gene Roddenberry and Rod Serling (of The Twilight Zone) used the future as a stage for modern morality plays, and William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, Nichelle Nichols and other science-fiction stars describe how they prepared to interact on-camera with a malevolent alien force ... or, perhaps, a giant radish.

Enjoyable Trip Down Memory Lane

Comments about PBS Pioneers of Television: Science Fiction DVD:

If you grew up watching classic science fiction tv shows, you'll enjoy this DVD. It goes behind the scenes of the old favorites, The Twilight Zone, Star Trek, Lost in Space and more. Leonard Nimoy is no longer with us, but he explains how Spock came to be such a great character. Rod Serling left quite a legacy with Twilight Zone and this DVD shows old footage of interviews with him . And who can forget Gene Roddenberry? Then there's the difference between the approach of Irwin Allen and Gene. This DVD is an enjoyable trip down memory lane for the fan of classic science fiction tv.

Review of TV's science fiction

By Chuck

Comments about PBS Pioneers of Television: Science Fiction DVD:

Well made review of TV science fiction in 1950's and 1960's. Glad they covered the "Twilight Zone" even though that series was more a fantasy. A lot of time spent on "Lost in Space", but it represented the Irwin Allen production company.
