Space: Above And Beyond – The Outer Limits – tape 2202

As a short break from Friday and Channel 4, we’re hopping over to Sky One today, and what looks like a whole four hours of one evening’s TV.

First, and episode of Space: Above and Beyond, and, like Frasier a couple of days ago, it’s a Christmas episode. It’s almost as if I plan this stuff out, isn’t it. (I don’t.)

The crew get stranded far away from the fleet, and have time to mull over the true meaning of Christmas while they work out a way to return. I’ve never really taken to this show, and this one hasn’t particularly encouraged me to watch more.

After this, recording continues with an episode of The Outer Limits. In Worlds Apart the UNAS, the space agency, receive a call from an astronaut who has splashed down – one who had gone missing 20 years ago. They discover he’s actually in another part of the galaxy, and the signal is coming through a small wormhole. Should they attempt a dangerous rescue? That’s the decision that head of the agency Bonnie Bedelia has to make, one made even harder because the astronaut was her boyfriend, who left to take on this voyage, 20 years ago, her time, but no time at all for him.

You’d think, in 1996, they’d be able to manage a slightly more convincing bluescreen shot for him on this alien planet.

Following this, the rest of the tape is an omnibus edition of Murder One, with episodes nine, ten and eleven. The tape ends just before the end of this, but here’s a picture of The West Wing’s Richard Schiff, who appears as a teacher who was caught having sex with an underage hustler
