THE DOOMED & STONED SHOW ~Season 5, Episode 42~ "Is this the day? Is this the beginning of the end? There is no time to wonder. No time to ask why is it happening, why is it finally happening. There is time only for fear, for the piercing pain of panic. Do we pray? Or do we merely run now and pray later? Will there be a later? Or is this the day?" This week's show is inspired by The Outer Limits, a classic science fiction television show that ran from 1963 to 1965. My favorite episode is called "The Architects of Fear." In response to Cold War fears of total nuclear annihilation, a secretive scientific order plots to unite the world against a common enemy -- a monster from outer space, to be precise. Only the monster would need to come from their own ranks, a volunteer who would undergo a risky surgery that would transform his entire being into one from the planet Theta. Names are put in a bowl and Dr. Allen Leighton (played by Robert Culp) ends up being selected to undergo the dangerous metamorphosis. Meanwhile, his spacecraft is being prepared for a dramatic landing at UN headquarters when the transformation is complete. The episode was directed by Byron Haskin, who a decade earlier had brought War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells to the big screen. PLAYLIST: IS THIS THE DAY? (00:00) 1.
