"Running. Rogers look back at At doug said good. Seen how i wanna do a revised version of influ bat or or there when rodney was teaching up in africa One year there. Everyone in the town knew him of small town and there was a young young boy whose mom owned a shoe store and one day he inside. The shoe store is full length mirror and rox mutual mirror and with end. Still looking at himself. He says the kid. Do you think i'm tight ass and and the kid says well you know. Yeah mister sterling. You can't talk through your teeth and ryder Unless you start great. There's another story. One of his students toll was he. There was one student who subsequently became a rider was like very others like six three or something and he came up to rod with a question in hold on a minute. We walked him over to the staircase and he hadn't go down a few steps until they were level. Because rod was like five five and said okay now now now you can talk a giant gary fun very fun style grace grace. Before i let you go mark. I i understand. You're going to be at sailing fast. This year and binghamton. Yes i and they reached out to me and i'll be happy to go and it'll be great to see everybody and yeah so if anyone's in upstate new york area on it's an interesting fact is that although i've been Into a guy had never been to binghamton. So i'm looking forward to that it's I know a lot about it. But i never made my way there. And they of course since i wrote fights companion They've really put up a lot. They're dedicated route. They've you know they've decorated the the carousel appropriately. Saarland's works and terrific. I mean i. I think rod would be very surprised that all these decades later twilight zone is held in great esteem greater even than what was on the air One of the sad things died at fifty not knowing he had left anything of merit into that last interview. We gave said My work has been momentarily. adequate Is just a very sad thing. Because he was it was his harshest critic and on but he created he not only created possibly the greatest television show ever made but he also inspired so many people to to tame higher and to do better. And you wouldn't have star trek without rod or the sopranos or so many shows that have come since we all were children of sterling. That's that's we consider ourselves that all of them create tv shows. I went to sailing festival years ago for for the sixtieth anniversary. I don't think i'm going to make it this year because of the travel ban unfortunately put 'em does real magic about being surrounded by so many twilight zone and sailing funds. So i'm sure you'll get a a super warm welcome added. I wish i could be located. Where are you based. I'm live approval in england.

"Cancer. And the people i know in their sixties in older are extremely vital in extremely isn't like a dividing walls all of sudden. You're you know obsolete and you just can't sit there staring off into space and So the cast is astonishing. It's michael barney's warranty is the new black and book ronald cartwright's in alien and birds and invasion body snatchers. Bob cardo is in it. Barbara bain again. gosh marta. Kristen from the original lost in space Eastern phillips star trek voyager. I mean of end James pong from blade runner although china's so i mean it's just gonna be superfund we've done to end gates mcfadden from star trek next generation. So we've So the script is written. We've done table reads via zoom and will be very shortly as well. I remember speaking to way back. When and you you produce the dvd's and blue raise for the twilight zone you've done a ton of commentaries on and off for all of them even then you are planning on doing what we're going to be talking about tonight like i said you've got so much on the pandemic give you the chance to kinda. Does that often say okay. Now's the time to do all the reason for it. Well first of all did fifty two commentaries on the blu ray with all the people who worked on those shows so they got commentary with george commentaries with george clayton johnson. Neural hamlin's richard donner before we lost them in their gone on the record is phenomenal. And that's still left over a hundred. But i hadn't yet done and so i always had an serving the back of my mind. Do them at some point. Because literally i have all this i get one hundred people worked on the show. I've got this encyclopedia of twilight zone in my head and some book. Some of violence companion. In fact i just a new addition that hundred more pages because there was so much more to tell But i thought before. I'm you know a memory a To share all of those stories and all of those things. These people told me plus there. Many many people who are the great creators of science fiction shows now and other shows that are huge sterling fans and they were inspired by surly to create the disney golden age of television people like Vince gilligan. on you better call saul breaking bad and david chase on the sopranos one more of the bs. G galactica and from mankind. And on and on. I mean brandon bragging. You name it. And so so. I'll be so my idea and also but also there's this thing called money and you can use it. You can buy stuff with which is very helpful and support so my idea was. My wife is a number of strips that we wanna get made am. I thought well i could. I could do the rest of the commentaries and raised like maybe one hundred thousand or more For work which. I very much like do since she writes. Wrexham produces with me and she's been doing space command with me. That seems only fair to return the favor in in sweat equity in cash and so I came up with us ideas so you now have a site called spy lights own. Commentaries dot com. Where people can put in their contact info and then watch kickstarter campaign and they be informed when that is up and the idea will be that. Every week i'll be doing a live commentary on two episodes of the twilight zone free year. I'm going to the that year The people by putting like forty nine bucks. They'll get all hundred plus audio commentaries. They can just watch episodes in this to the full commentary. And that and this other perks were through a little more money than like an archive of my entire file of the twilight zone. Companion everything in my file cabinets. When i did the twilight zone comply get us or another another perky as they they can ask questions and i'll answer them in the commentary on their specific episode or they can have an episode dedicated to them or and this is a higher ticket item. They can act commentary with me. You zoom and again you know. It's just kind of something. I'll do like once a week for year and that'll cover the hundred hundred and four episodes and and it'll be great fun because you know again. There's so much discover still in. There's so much to do. I mean the fact that i'm not working with. Ron cartwright on sweet haven she started. I sing the body electric. Which is the only episode of twilight zone by ray bradbury and There were two other strips that wrote the show but to sit down with her. And just say okay. Let's talk about this episode. You know because it's it has a very very stormy production history where they test one actress to play the robot grandmother and it didn't work and then months later they hired another director and came back and shot leaving actress so they there will be. She's on that some months later. And so it'd be very interesting to sit down and talk with rhonda about that and that was the with fans so You know and then of course. I have my might mr sci-fi youtube channel where you know. I'm closed all the time and people can watch space command. They can listen to my opinions about any number of things and and it's just it's just super fun. Yes that's going to be quite an interesting journey because it's all five seasons the twilight zone. It includes things like the pilot. I never did a comedy on. Where is everybody on and on. I mean some of the great episodes and so be be super fun. I'm kind of fascinated by your archive. Because imagine you. You probably had to put some stuff out of the companion or otherwise it would have been like so yeah hundred hours of audio interviews with the people that i mean. Everyone from burgess meredith to and francis to all the producers of twilight zone Interviews with richard matheson and george clayton johnson and earl hamster. I mean it just goes on. And on william windham name it. I mean george clements. The the dp i mean. Yeah there's i'd say ninety percent of the stuff that i got from the interviews in for my researchers aren't in the book from rod sterling has subscribed to clipping file From around nineteen fifties theban nineteen fifty six fifty seven until his death so every article was ever written about him was in these big leather scraps in chronological order was like the encyclopedia rod sterling and up in his attic in his house in pacific. Palisades and you know i would. I would take these volumes home and make notes and so all you know. So my notes turned in the files. And i will transcribe the interviews and type up this tons of stuff and photographs. I over two hundred photographs from the twilight zone with. Maybe three hundred will not publish so You know you name it. I mean it's it's very fun and Again i was twenty one or twenty two when i started working on the book and and so everyone is still around. With the exception of rod sterling who died two years earlier and charles beaumont you know it premature much everyone else was still alive so it was phenomenal and You know and again. It's it's it's funny because it's really an oral history of the twilight zone and because one thing to have an academic have opinions but in a way that's almost in my opinion worthless because some deicing well you know if you look at twilight zone admits metaphorically to bad mouth academics. Heaven forbid but but there's something about say. Yeah i was on the set. And you're shooting death alley big thing in chocolate milk. I pass game. Refrain it's like it's like that's a very different kind of story. Then someone's opinion you know it's it's recollection isauro on I love talking on those people. It was it was terrific. It's interesting that you you mentioned. You know you're in your early twenties when you wrote this one of the things about the twilight zone. Is you know i. I've reviewed episodes on this. Podcast may be eight years ago or something. And as i get older i will revisit those episodes and i think you know what i've grown into that episode. Now i think completely different about it. I mean you ever been flicking through the twilight zone companion and think you know what. Maybe i was hard on that episode. But i actually. I'm an older man now and i. I've got a new perspective on has happened. Yes it has. A for instance bigwigs who which and pool Wish i had problems with because you may data from skill mockingbird starred in and they had to loop voice in about of june for ray doing sort of her voice. it's it's really odd doesn't really work but But someone wrote me a letter. When i came out saying that i didn't like the episode and they said when i was a kid appearance divorcing and there was no one getting a divorce on television all happy families and i saw that twilight zone episode about these kids whose parents divorcing and and i knew i wasn't alone and and validated how he was feeling and i said well. That's that's really that's really valid. I mean i can't. I can't of be negative about that. So when i wrote the new entry in the new twilight zone companion. I included that and i said no i see how that has value and Sh you know so. Yes sometimes my end. Sometimes my opinion changes. I mean one thing that really does stand out with twilight zone. It's just the astonishing artistry of it. I mean the us cinematography. The grates or is by jerry. Goldsmith and france. Waxman bernard room in on you know and and it just keeps going. I mean just in every category in that chain from surly because the writing was such high quality than everyone else in go. I don't wanna be loved the week. Lincoln this chain so So it's it's really something and Yes so it's But but like so yes. Sometimes i will change my opinion and even the bad episodes are. There's this stuff of value in them. I mean even some that like we're rod talks about Advertisements he was so tired in writing so much he felt like it was too rod sterling talking to each other getting seen because he had such a distinctive way of talking. And that's a very demonstrative that is the fear with hazel court in mark richmond. Where it's like. Yeah it sounds like two hundred to two servings talking each other but but even a lot of fun. It's a lotta fun in so yeah so but i and again you know one. That's things about one of the ideas. I have my the twilight zone companion. Was i'll have the information about egypt's so that will be unbiased. That won't have an opinion for or against. And then i'll have my opinion. But i be the information and so so in other words i have never ever minded someone having a different opinion because if someone says to me well you know my favorite episodes shelley berman. Okay about that. Or the one with carol burnett which she is the only one with a laugh track and then they took the laugh track at out the iran. It's like you're just a saline and then they wait for no particular reason they say the next line because they were timing for laugh track. So it's a it's a strange episode with or without the laugh track but have you ever been tempted to kinds of. I mean you ought to. Because i've got your new twilight zone companion the updated one in. It's great that extra material but have you ever looked one and saw you know why i'm so such a different man now. Such different person that. I like to completely rewrite my opinion on Let me think to the challenges that there's so many great twilight zone episodes that i i watch them. What was really astonishing to me was For many years after. I wrote the twilight zone companion. I didn't watch by light zone. 'cause i'd spent five years working on the book. And then they were going to do a documentary on rod sterling american masters and pbs. Contacted me and they said well. We're going to in black white and one interview you on film and i was very nervous about. His flattened talked about violence on really even thought about it much for like a decade or two so brought the book with me just in case i needed to consult it and they interviewed on camera for two and a half hours and i never once opened the book because it was hard. That's what i knew was into my head so so yeah yeah. I mean maybe the encounter is one. I've changed my opinion about that. One i i was down on and now i will like it. I think george novel branch terrific You know there's there might be a few but again. I you know i think pilots batting average just in terms of great episodes is so high. You know it's like when you look at you know when you think about okay. Rod strumming spends week and he does the the lonely and in the next week. It's walking distance and then the next week so it's stop. Whenever the next week it's time enough at last night all each how these are all great is classier and even with the our ones which were very problematical. You've got an amazing episode on thursday. Believe for home. I don't know any other piece of writing. The deals with someone who's a hero in can't let go of power and stress himself is writing and james whitmore spectacular or desktop lately. Great mathis nap so I just. I just got the space from that episode. So she's hanging hanging over there l. about fourteen spaces or so because because we being space. Command sewn backgrounds Buying in space. The one behind me is from outland by the way. So it's so it's safe to say then that if people listen to these commentaries of probably going to hear things that they've never had before a absolutely hundred percent yes and because because again there's so much bow these episodes that aren't isn't in book. I mean you know it's it's just it's just one of the reasons. I do the updated while his companions because asked rice finished writing the book and it came out. People kept telling me amazing. Stories like for instance. Douglas gays who became a very dear friend of mine he had been director on. Many of the great episodes told me that i am the beholder. He realized that they were gonna run. Short and rod was out of town and unreachable. This is before the internet of course and so doug road seen inroads style and shot it and ever see the so seen whether in the in the break room the doctor and the nurse smoking a cigarette and he says i've looked under those bandages. It's a human face that was written by doug hayes not rod sterling and then released put it together and screened in for rod. Doug was you know in the back of the screening room sweating bullets. He had to write a scene of installing style and then at the at the end of it when they when finished.

"Editor full-time a you know like a film editor. We have someone running up physical production of our studio over physical studio et cetera. So i was able to keep all of our people on salary and I've raised over. I've raised over two and a half million dollars from space command. Since i've started being spacecom entirely my fans via kickstarter campaigns and seven investment shares of seventy five hundred bucks each and so so but the interesting thing was i realized that because everyone will stuck a moment going crazy gnarly because so many of my actors are so well known and so busy of. They're not available. It's very difficult to give them all together at one time but they were all sitting at home. You know just climbing walls because all the studios everything at shut down so i had. I came up with idea where elaine wrote a bonus to our episode space command that are actors pitching in their own homes with their own cameras so they could save but We shot the first three hours in space. Command recorded an audio prequel. But i but i had already worked out most of the for season. And i knew where all all this was going. And they're a bunch of characters. I hadn't yet introduced i. We would be so armee. Shimin christina moses in so many. Jj hurts so many actors that which is waiting and wings and now they were home so by by doing this. Two hour episode allowed me to introduce a lot of people like barbara bain. Space nineteen ninety nine is in spacemen. Now emeals grass tyson. It's an of riches. So why are episode and Our entire visual effects bag of tricks. For instance wait a scene between one of our characters who's based in atlanta. An actress meghan a castle access to play his daughter and she was in scotch one and we managed to put them together in the same living room. Even though they both starred in their own homes and were never actually politically together and so a very very fun and And then in the meantime i finished a new book called lighting yourself which is basically how people don't have to rely on the studios or the networks even the publishing houses to make their dreams come true how the internet and having video cameras in our pockets and all of that allows everyone to sort of as i say light yourself so i just finished that book and sent it off my publisher and yeah we. We didn't slowdown during the pendency. Ramped up and we're busier than ever. It's elaine. And i just celebrated our forty fourth anniversary and we write direct produce together. And it's it's a dream come true. So i'm i have no complaints and our people are all very very well healthy. Sadly mira furlan. Who was one of our test in space men who i worked with on babylon five passed away from west nile virus all things not covert and that was really a great loss and she was amazing actress in your soul. And i'm glad that we got to have her in space command as much as we did because she was kim come true. I watched some of that before online. Some of that two hour special and that there are some names in and michelle nichols was in there. Yes yes i mean. It's insane the cast. You've assembled in pristina. Moses who's on a million little things on abc currently and she plays sues daughter in the star trek episode. i did with decay. And that was her first tv role ever and she's just phenomenal and she'll be continuing in space man and also in in magic time another one of my projects and So yeah yeah. And but the now we're ramping up to do the show runners network where i'm creating six series with the creators of Farscape and the expanse and defiance and on and on. And i'm ansa doing six shows including a rod sterling series really. It's an amazing time. Yeah yes we can we can talk about. All of these. Various things is that. Is that news out there. Mark of of i got a bit of an exclusive. Can we talk about that. Why negotiations with the states. What's not lockdown. But ninety i came up with a wild. Oh which was. It's called rod sterling sampler twilight and Basically rod as you. I'm sure you know dictated all of his. Everything's script sledders folks. Everything he lounge by his swimming pool in the backyard in the morning and he'd have a little recorder any would dictate everything into the recorder. Secretary would type it up. And he'd make him directions and it was up at all of these according were lost for decades and they just discovered a thousand hours of them. In a couple of archives podge archives and so my idea was to create a new show that would be narrated by rod sterling from that material plus is a number scripts that either never got made with throwing road or or written during the live. Tv era the no one has seen since then and this would be primarily fantasy science fiction horror at plus media scripts from the others violates on writers that were not made and scripts by a new generation of writers. You know people. Like neil gaiman jemison again. We haven't we haven't earned that. But that's my idea and joe dougherty who was executive producer. I'm pretty little liars and won an emmy for thirty. something is aboard on that project with me. So he's an old friend and so i've been in communication with the ruling stayed and with their representatives. And we'll see if we can make that happen but it's definitely project i want to do and So we'll see but that's right now. It's on the list. The thing is you know this. The jordan peele twilight zone came out. And i and i really enjoyed it. But it was quite divisive with fans i think. Sometimes people find it hard to accept a new twilight zone. Dante without rod serling is also difficult because rod. Sterling really was irreplaceable. There's only one of him. And and then the writing staff he got he got three of ray. Bradbury's proteges sign. Henry were friends and ray recommended charles. Beaumont richard matheson and george clayton. Johnson also came aboard to and they became the core of that amazing writing team. That created twilights. Earl ham also came aboard. He played on the waltons falcon crest but he was a very different kind of writer. He was much more rural and was matheson. Beaumont george clayton johnson which is tackler a science fiction fantasy writers and And so they just. I mean it was just a match made in heaven and so you know. I won't script for the twilight zone. Will they brought it back in the eighties. That was an amazing writing. Staff was harlan ellison allen george martin michael tacit and so forth astray strong writing staff but very hidden this you know and the scripted i wrote. We will week away from web. Doug hayes was directed. He direct is beholden howling man many great episodes and and sensors pull the plug on it because they felt it was too hard. Edged is called nine avail. So that's one of the strips. We're going to be shooting on if rod sterling after twilight Another ost by lights on script. That i'm i'm very proud of tv sack off. Wanted to do it a few years ago and so we'll see what we what we do with it. But it'll be fun. It'll be very fun. It sounds amazing. Because i think it will probably be a lot more palatable for those people who just can't accept a modern twilight zone. This is kind of somewhere in between isn't it. You know it's it's still got.

"Ten years ago. I began my ginny into the twilight zone but in actuality the tree beginning of the show was probably a year or maybe to even before that changes of hosting changes of websites mean at the date. She senior pod catcher on the actual dates when the show began rather fittingly the beginning of the twilight zone. Podcast has been lost a time but in my mind it was probably two thousand nine two thousand and ten so when you consider that the first ever podcast is generally believed to been released in two thousand and four. This show coming out about five years later. Means that it really was coming out in a time when this format was just new and emerging nowadays hundreds of celebrities have their own podcast celebrities interview other celebrities celebrities even now do episode by episode breakdowns of the shows. They acted in which used to be. The two main of people like me doing a show like this so although the celebrity podcast in those days the landscape was very different. It was a format that fans could use to ensues about things in a way that they were never really allowed to do before. What radio station is ever going to green light an episode by episode breakdown of the twilight zone. It just wouldn't happen degrading about podcasting though is to borrow a quote from my guest tonight. You don't need to be green lit by a radio station. You can green light yourself but this young format had to prove itself. If you had a radio show people took notice but if you had to podcast not so much. So when i started this show just the fact that it existed didn't carry much weight at all and if i wanted some important guests to comment show. I needed some credibility. And i needed a guest to bring some attack credibility against who i could hold up toward the people and say look who came onto my show. Maybe you like to come onto. And i was absolutely thrilled all those years ago when the man who agreed to do that to take that first step and embrace this new format and to guest on this show was also the manual at the four sankt to see that these kind of fanned deep dives on an episode by episode level. Were what people wanted. His book fairs published in one thousand nine hundred eighty two one of the forerunners of this way of enjoying our media part reference par trivia and opinion. And while you might not always agree with them which as your find out in a moment he's absolutely fine with that. Disagreement breeds conversation and is now. Why would all here to kind of show that i'm doing now would not exist without the work of my guests. Tonight the media might be different but the law of of the material is the same so tonight submitted for your approval the author of the twilight zone companion..

"Thank you. Yeah and it was very funny leading for Star Trek because it's such an enormous huge universe now with all the stories they've done all of the series and to come up with two stories totally or never done before on a great honor and a great challenge and And funny because the inspiration for a hobby on stars working the booth fifty nine fiction writer on my first my first paid mentor which Theodore Sturgeon and I got no ten very well written of course to Great Star Trek. The original series. I'm a crime. And surely and he also written for Galaxy magazine in the magazines. Fantasy science fiction back fifty. And so that's why I got the germ of that idea to write about those guys who who wrote science fiction back there then for the love of it and you wouldn't have star wars and Star Trek. Those wonderful writers like head and our regret Brie and many of those wonderful writers and then Harlan Ellison Harlan was not offended. Mentor he He did a a cording little that he recorded about writing. During that era in the fifties Ray Bradbury and I know you're doing a memorial for him at the Convention I know you're probably gonNA say some things while you're there but just kind of What's your first memory of of Ray Bradbury's work you know it's funny i. I was reading from when kit and he actually gave a talk in the library when I'm ten years. And he was the first rider I ever saw person and is so impressed with and even then he was so alive and so warm and so encouraging and I remember that somebody said that then was for writer your life and your art and your work all come from the same place in this offense and I think that's when I first even even started thinking of becoming a writer and then in recent years over the last fifteen years I became very very good friend. And he's a terrific mentor and every month or so. I would go over to the house and we just didn't talk. What an honor that was and I'm a huge fan of his work. I mean the Marshall Chronicle for five lanes or mazing amazing books. And I'm I'm I'm glad they`re. They've been establishes classics and will live on and it was funny because I knew it was in poor health. I'd seen just a few weeks before he died and and yet when he died it was still such a blow because there was only one of him another one. I was so honored to get snow and just be someone inspired insurance work and we'll see where things lead. I mean I. There was a project and I wanted to do together. A mini series called Bradbury's Lost Mar based on twentieth. Aren't in the Marshall Chronicles and And I hope is doing natural kickstarter to down the road when base. Command is finished. And we'll see if that happens. I I really want to do that. That'd a nicer tribute to him. I think he would like that. Very much. That's That's one of the things that you were involved in your directed an episode. World Enough and time for a star Trek new voyages talked to Jim. Cawley about that project and I kinda look at. As the semi pro ball of Star Trek were professionals working with almost professionals on there and I thought that was very unique. And I the thing about those episodes of really has given characters like your episode was on a sue and really fleshed out a lot of his character with the alternate history and I really enjoyed that I. It's I know it's hot shooting on that bridge but I mean it's it certainly looks good and and the stories were certainly really cool to watch. Well Yeah I'm I'm very very of that. We'll nothing time. I wrote it and directed and executive produced it and Michael Visas Michael Right on. He also for next Gen and on an emmy for the for Batman the Animated Series Star Wars novels. Now writing books with Neil Gaiman and it'll be riding one of our men movies with me. Well worth one and it was great because I always wanted to work with Georgia. We met when I interviewed him for the twilight zone companion when I was working on that book in my twenties and I'd I long to work with him and when I found out about star trek new voyages which is now called. Cirque DU I remember the story line. Michael Lifson pitch to Archer case to win paramount with can do that show in the seventies and it's a great suitable episode and they end up making it took because they needed star. Trek Movies into that theory. I called Michael and I said you wanNA write this with me we can do with these guys in upstate. New York and he said sure. And then we start to Georgetown Georgia's House and Sit Down with them in in vining them and I had type of the storyline in three pages. And I said you're brilliant actor not just in another things. I've seen which I mentioned. I said you all you never got the deserve here. It is and I need you to read these three pages right now and tell me. If you'll do this you'll make with me. And he read three pages right there and he said Yeah. I'm in and it was great because you know I think is my favorite star trek character. Really because he's just such a great character such intelligent and competent and loyal great qualities. I wish that they had done the captain soon. After we did one on my than I can Winston Engle and I actually wrote up a captain whose dairy recycle and and outlined a full to our movie and the networks just went the CDs. Just wasn't interested. It was funny. Cbs now on Star Trek to television and because CVS Viacom Paramount. You know and And they just didn't fit in with their business model. Wow you guys just really. Don't get it you know so But I'm glad that I actually generated that that document because of what do series would've been enjoys can't be to work with I. I look forward to working with him again and I really appreciate your time but I can't let you go without saying that many a times I would have the twilight zone companion with me. After watching an episode. I would thumb through that and pick out the different details about the episode. And also what you thought of the episode and it just really made it so much more enjoyable by doing that. Thank you and it was great. It was on the book and You know I'm very glad that I wrote a book about twilights on what was stoppages. Something you know. It's not such quality I mean I recently I did. Fifty commentaries violate them. Blu Ray also produced and sit down and watching them again rash after all these years and it's just finishing. I mean mazing work. And I'm so glad that Rod that show that show and brought Matheson Beaumont and George Clayton Johnson aboard and or Ham nermeen the nominal work and various five. And I go back to twilight zone over just reminded of what possible. And he's just a huge inspiration and Bradbury too. As a matter of fact his is the only episode were Sterling's narration his in it because that's the way Bradbury wrote you know it's real. Yeah Yeah Lane. I talked about What's funny 'cause when when Rod serling sold the twilight when he called Ray and he said I don't know if you're not science fiction and they said come up with the House and I'll I'll teach you came over the house? Ray took him into his basement whereas office was closed. Some books off the shelf one by one of his short story books and by Mattress Bromont when John Collier gave him the Rodney. Read these. And let's talk until Matheson in. Beaumont came aboard twilight zone physically because of of recommending. They were two of his shaved and how that happened and so it was a he raised. Yeah and boy were glad they did. They really added so much to the show and the direction show absolutely phenomenal as far as space command. It'll be a website for that eventually or Space Command. Well they know the stakes command movie. Dot Com which takes you started and and pledge base. Command takes you to the website if you go to started patriots and click through their website. And I think once the once the campaign is over fiscal end movie Dot Com. We'll just either direct line to the website so if one is just used to going that route. Think the right over right over to the website and there's lot of video content and artwork as a concept art and there's a lot of good look at on the website even now great great. That sounds great. Thank you so much for your time mark. And we'll certainly help. Get the word out about this really worthy project. It's going GonNa be a lot of fun for me. The ten year old boy is jumping up and down right now inside of me. So it's GonNa be every day is like my birthday. I really appreciate the opportunity to talk about Tony because he can tell that I really love it. Oh Yeah it's That's that's great. I mean that kind of passion is so necessary. These days In any kind of project. So I'm really glad you've had it for this and also really in your career to do something like this. Thanks.
"zicree" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"His new project has me excited at hearkens back to a day. Saifi were dreams ran rampant. Let's hear about Space Command and New Space Dreams. Really excited to talk to you about this project know. I think it's it looks you know watching it on the kickstarter site. It looks really really cool. Yeah we we're very excited about it. It's really fun. What made you decide to To to kind of reviving reduced basket. Well it was. Essentially the whole idea came from you know conversations. I was having Gresley and Neil John from you and my part is on this project where you know we really love. Science Fiction from the fifties and I was very aware that there was some of the shared vision of what our journey in space would be that we you know when you when you're reading Heinlein Asimov Clark was. We would all go out into space. We colonize Mars until for him. You know the outer worlds and moons in this system and then jump out stars in town. Ralian races and so forth. There was very much. You know the same vision you get in control and Forbidden Planet and Star Trek and so forth and then in recent decades you kind of lost that and and fiction lately is very topic and very dark. I mean I like that very much. You know the recent version. But you know it doesn't leave you feeling hopeful and You know and even come on the easiest turns out to be extremely dark and grim you know and so I thought there was room to explore this this company new based on what in five knee when I was younger. I gotta give you all Kudos for doing this on kickstarter. I think it's a great idea. you don't have to deal with networks and things like that and then they end up getting in the way most of the time unfortunately so. Kudos for you for doing it that way. Thanks thanks a lot. Essentially some of your cast You've got some great people involved so far. Ethan Phillips Arman Shimin Catches Mickey Jones from Penns Laboratory. Hell boy and you know. And it's just going from stations on five. And just you know and Papa cargo for Bob on this prevention from few there were were planning role for her so it just it just keeps getting better and better and more and more people from major science fiction movies in fiction series and reaching out they hear about this project you know so. I think we're GONNA have even more amazing announcement very shortly. I know you've gotten a lot of support. Also you know from people in the industry to to say full speed ahead and get this going. Yes I mean. It's nice that you know people are really enjoying what we're up to. I mean bland bragging year Mo and then Lindelof and Neil Gaiman and when they're on Jayjay I mean they've all been very very supportive and very friendly and he just kind of you know I mean the thing. The thing is that people who do good work recognize other good work and and they're not snob so isn't about. Oh well you're not in the studio you know Old System. So how good can it be? That's not their attitude at all their attitude is you? They know my work and they liked my work. Concurrently book with your Modell Toro and And so you know one game was writing. Teacher say was For Road is not presented. You build it and that's very much what we're doing steaks command absolutely and that's A. It's a great road to build and I think if you all the people you mentioned And really myself too was influenced by those early Space Adventures Especially as we were starting out with our interest in science fiction the Space Command and the Forbidden Planet before Star Trek or the ones that you know were around. That's where it star. Trek has its roots really. Of course I couldn't tell people that my two favorite dark movies and Forbidden Planet and Galaxy. So but it's true I mean it's it's funny because you know when we were when we were younger and just starting reading reading genre and watching. Tv and film. You know I mean they would be dark. Things happening me stories. I mean certainly if you look at look movie forbidden at this monster from the killing people. The basic underlying assumption is that there is lymphoma heroism and there is room for selflessness -bility and ultimately become something with a good heart a better sheets representative there is a happy ending ahead you know and I think with all of the doom and gloom in the world I you know in my own life and of many people I know you know you can reach out others. You can't create something that will endure and and it isn't all just you know. Oh my God. The future is going to be bleak. I don't believe that in and it hasn't been if you look over the last few decades my have been terrible things of course nine eleven and the Vietnam War and you name it. But it's been wonderful things to in people as their families and and and find love and all the things that make life worth living and So I I very much want to present that That viewpoint absolutely and you know with today's special effects It's it's a lot easier to do it now than ever before this even ten years ago would have been harder to do what would have been impossible. We couldn't do this project. Despite level it would have been millions of dollars and I wouldn't even attempt to. I mean it's it's really the the influence of the fact you can shoot on a digital camera. Edit on a Mac you can reach out to people via the Internet to raise money and disseminate material and also You know the special effects are incredibly less expensive than they used to be. You can do things that you know. They were doing the Star Wars in two thousand one and Petra kids learning technology so it and becomes a group effort. So we're actually like I. I enjoy doing things this way. So is there a plan to do like a standalone movie kind of thing? The pilots were starting by doing four homes and what we call three vignettes half hour story. Kansas I basically follows family. The family and the family as part of the great expansion and migration exploration out of the system and the stars and over centuries and so we're following several generations of the family and the families and so some of the stories will be further along the time line will be earlier in the crimeline something like when Pete when highland created when he called the future history and had stories all along that future timelines. That's sort of what we're doing and it's very very fun and so You know so so. We're already for some of the stories will take much earlier. When we're still in the solar system we still have slower than light. Travel were performing Mars. And and settling planets of the Jovian and twenty in systems. Like your rope and so forth Ganymede later ones will be out among stars and Encountering Alien Races and having those kind adventure so big story and I really like like taking it on and I'm having time of my life that's cool. That's really cool looking forward to seeing when that when that it all comes together should be a lot of fun Well actually we're actually people our building tiny designing aliens and new genetic special effects. We're waiting. We're which we start shooting the first one in October. And we're actually shooting I to our story and the thirty minute vignette. You must time win back moving ahead on all of that now. Is this going to be available on the Internet to start? Is that the plan or. Is there a different venue for you? Basically the backers have gone space can dot com or page and they can they can get a dvd or BLU. Ray Not only downloadable content as well and Ultimately maybe the on demand or a theatrical depending on who steps up. We'll see how that shakes out but but initially when thinking you know the home video options you know is is the way to go and then go off and lots of extras like books and P shirts and watches and jackets and all of that really cool stuff model you know name states cool hopefully will bring back those shots and movies a little boy with his. You know model of the spaceship in his room. You know we don't have enough or they lately. You know we really know and you know. I think it's really interesting when you think about. It's like I feel sorry for little kids. It's like in terms of mean star. Wars is beguiling but star wars as long time ago and the Galaxy far away. It's not like grow out and be part of that Universe Star Trek. The original Star Trek inspired a lot of people who grow up and be scientists and become astronauts because they saw that as a future they could be part of and wanted to be part of and I think I think the important thing and and you know so I think it's really well worth from inspiring it's And so they can pretty much. I hope so she had to have our ships called power. And it's just really cool looking Spaceship and so we can has a model of that. You know by wire over and Daddy Daddy was doing absolutely absolutely and we. This won't be running before comic con so I wanted to ask you. Have you have your panel there? That's going to happen and you're gonNA show some Some interesting visual goodies as well. Yes we're GONNA premiere some new affect shots and also in mccague. My friend who designed Marley must be something was working on the avengers and John Carter and Harry Potter is designing our characters. And so we're GONNA be unveiling a lot of the character designs as well but there's be a lot of surprises and some of our actors. We'll be on the panel Doug Jones and mathematician and MOANS and Andrew. Johnston said she'll you may pop them as well. And so it's GonNa be great panel. It's Friday night. Eight thirty nine thirty in room five. Am during cons. So we'll be there Friday night July thirteenth signings day before on that day and the day after giving up posters things like that terrific great. It's great to see kind of like this enthusiastic version of space being told again and that's as it should be. Yeah and it's it's Sunday so many people beaching outlets in fact they are actually a wheel. Man the The air force arm of the State Service and they actually be shots and they WANNA work with us on this as well and they won't have Zoya approval or anything like that but they'll be making some of their resources and extra few able to and we're going we're going to be going through the approval process office with them but very fun to me with with couple of officers from the air force because again when I grew up with the space program and Apollo and all of that I mean. You know there. There really aren't we. Oh heroes you know. I'm not in favor of war but I'm certainly not a bigoted against you know people in the military. I you know there are many ways to serve this country. I have to also commend you. You wrote to my favorite star trek episodes from two different shows. And that was I contacted. The same would be be newer. Is it still crate? Had had also far beyond the stars which different tone It was a very important Benjamin. Sisko episode really showed what he was about and I really enjoyed both of them for different reasons but they were both.
"zicree" Discussed on The Twilight Zone Podcast
"This case. It's actually true with the length of wasn't my only issue with it on. I watch because a story like this needs atmosphere and tension and the thing is it looked great. The use of the actual ship on the underwater scenes means it looks great. It looks authentic. It's well photographed. For contrast. It was something like judgment night from the first season and not episode. It's nighttime. The ship is blacked out to stop it being seen by the enemy. It's a Pathak setup for an Irian counter or here everything is in broad daylight on top of that does this very clinical clean backdrop of the ship itself which especially when. You're watching it on cleaned up. Blu Ray just is very very bright. Doesn't seem like a good setting for creepy tail. And the idea of this unexplainable noise in itself is quite creepy but we are exposed to the forty five minutes. So it's a tough sell and it does begin to lose its impact Mark Zicree in the twilight zone companion says executed as a half hour. Show the thirty thousand grave might have been effectively eerie in the tradition of judgement night. Put an hour is impossibly parted rather than having. The story developed at a normal pace. Each piece of information is revealed with all the agency of SAP dripping from a tree and variety magazine. At the time seem to agree they said the yawn was so thin that the our had to be heavily partnered with inconsequential naval routine. It was less progression to the drama than repetition of incidents until the climactic suggestion that the banking might not have been made by man was in twenty years dead. The nervous breakdown of the mate was the pretext for some hokey psychology ising piled artificiality onto in credibility so where the critics are concerned. Things certainly don't look good as father in grave and on my I watch. I really did feel that ruining time but you know strangely after I knew what the twist was an I returned for a second. Viewing it didn't seem as long to it certainly was still long but I think it's a case of getting out of the mindset of what we've been exposed to for the previous three years and just allowing the twilight zone to have a different shape like viewing it as a short twilight zone movie rather than a long twilight zone episode. You know granted. There are several scenes that you could cost out and like Mark Zicree says in the twilight zone companion. The diver goes up and down so many times that they might as well have put them on a piece of elastic. But once you sal into a different rhythm I think there is some good stuff in this episode. Now make no bones about it. I think it would have made a better short episode than a long one but I guess we have a choice. We can either let that be a weight. Around the neck of the episode that drags it down to its own thirty thousand grave or we can acknowledge and move on and look for what does work and I do think that wants the episodes sales in awesome things. That work okay. It would have made a better short episode but it doesn't mean it makes a bad long one but when I do think it drops the ball is the ending you know. Finally we have this great creepy location. The sunken submarine it's underwater. You has these air pockets in. It's rusted it's Deity and its atmospheric. But were there for about thirty seconds and then we got the Pale. It was a wreck inside certain. Nobody has chance nobody periscope shears had been cut in half and one whole section was just hanging there swinging back and forth. That was making the noise. That was making noise. Wasn't it I guess. But but what they were eight men in the control room eight men or what was left of them. Aw One of them had a hammer in his hand..

"Burnt. We mentioned earlier on on that. The use of the word crazy was quote out of the script for fear of offending and i was very interested to read mark zicree comments about this one in the twilight zone companion and he says about the gift pretentious stereotypical on insulting particular to anyone of mexican heritage with the exception of pedro the doctor and the blind guitar player. The people of the village are presented as superstitious fearful peasants who prefer to see the alien as an agent of the devil rather than a friendly emissary jimmy from beyond the stars so interested in this for a couple of reasons with the advent of online discourse. You only have to dip into social media to see that offense is a major topic of discussion or rather the subjective many arguments sometimes a group whether it be political passion of particular gender sexuality on nationality can be anything will say that say it and things think offends them and then there will be the opposition to that whereas we'll say you shouldn't be offended by the you're taking things too seriously freedom freedom of speech political correctness gone mad etc etc. It's another part of online this course i find quite exhaust and and so if we look at mark zicree stance on this you know certainly as time goes on and societal norms change sometimes entertainment entertainment can seem a bit dated in its outlook when we come back to it years later so it does happen. Has it happened here. You really have to hear that from someone of mexican heritage before i would really subscribe to decrease points of view on that. I watched personally as they're concerned he's killed one of the police and with it being a small town this is is probably someone that they knew now saying li the say kim stances of the happening or a bit suspect and do play into the overall aspect aspect of it. You know we have no reason to disbelieve wilson story that the policeman pulled his gun on and he was just trying to protect themselves but the townspeople don't know this so of course they're going to be quite wary oven or at least that's how i did see. I still maintain saying that. This is not a great episode. It's not terrible. It's definitely flawed. The relationship between the boy and wilson doesn't really work doc the jesus allegory aspect. I still think is pointless and if we're talking about mob mentality well as far as the townspeople no wilson killed a police offset and clogged a bartender of the head with the ball wine. How can we blame them for their heightened emotional state <music> but then i remembered this comment from the doctor but did sanchez dot some some the giants. The dax fired several shots later. I found some bread sticks. That's an emolument from the state capital. They will take over some giant thing not the darkness or perhaps you're here with me dr no law and order and this village sanchez sanity as well. You have frightened me speech. I just wanna make sure that the fear is not an illusion so i sat down sorts about this one again and now for me. This isn't just another twilight zone about mob mentality. Saintly that is an aspect to it but this time sailing is examining in another another way later on in the episode we see sanchez warning over the out of town police officer sanchez is a braggart. He's a blowhard. He wants to present himself in the best possible light or at least in the like the brings in the most glory so when we first meet term he tells the story of their encounter with the alien in such a way is to make himself and the other officers salvador look good good in the circumstances as far as he's concerned. It wasn't just an encounter with a man. It was an encounter.

"And welcome back. Our final segment with Mark Zicree. Marc will space. Command qualify for a TV EMMY or a movie Oscar category TV, George I would love to have a gorgeous gorgeous statue, Ray, Bradbury one one for the Halloween fee. The TV movie of that I've got three regional Emmys for news over my career. They are so cool. It's great. I love that stuff. Holding the globe. And all that stuff. It's neat. Let's go back to the calls. You ready for some more? We'll go to Mason Texas Stevens with us on coast to coast. Good morning. Stephen morning, George good to have you with us. More. I have a question. Sure. Why did why did? Twilight zone Goto hour long episodes on season four, and how did you think about the whole hour long episode? We not funny because usually when rod conceive wrestling conceiver twilights initially thought it was going to be in our show. He actually wrote real four pilots twilight zone before the show got actually picked up and the first three of those that were our scripts the plainly decided it would be a half hour. But once he started doing it as a half hour realized that was the perfect length for the show, and he was very adamantly against it being extended to an hour. This is something CBS is doing in that period in the early sixties. They did with gun smoke. They did it with the offered Hitchcock show. And so they thought that they might be able to a large audience by expanding twilights onto an hour. So they took so long deciding that only gave it really I have season the fourth season with eighteen episodes, and they were an hour long. And. Twilights really didn't work as well. As at our math, Richard Matheson, Charles Beaumont and surly Earl hammer the major writers on twilights all had one good hour episode age, but at the end of the season pretty much everyone agrees that it needs to go back half dragging at. Though, there's a great hour long episode called on Thursday. We for home this stars James Whitmore and rod Serling wrote it, and it's it's great. It's terrific. But then for the fifth season the fifth and final season. They went back to our thirties were actually twenty twos. Weren't they actually closer to twenty seven? They're only they're only few commercials back then those days. Yeah. Now, don't they? Sure, do but the back then they most of the both that have was the episode. And you know, he he did he have a cigarette when he came out. Yeah. You know, it's like he had a cigarette pretty much all the time. And he was a four pack a day smuggle. What got him in the long run? I mean, he died of complications from open heart surgery. And you know, he would he really let's older than he was he died at fifty and which is the new thirty amazing. But the boy he got a lot done in the time. He had. Yeah. He sure did. He he did more in his time than most people do at ninety amazing. Let's go to Travis in Omaha Nebraska. Hey, I think that's a home. Johnny carson. Isn't it? Travis Travis who they can doing. Well, you hear me? Yes, sir. Yeah. I I had a couple of questions. The Mark, sir. Yeah. I heard you talking about the movies that you're making is is it just one movie it's going to be a serious series. And in fact, the first hour, I've I've YouTube channel called Mr. sci-fi anyone can subscribe to and it's free. And I put the first hour of space command on on my channel, actually, watch it. And in fact, we shot a scene with initial Nichols today. We'll be posting footage from that. So it's it's a twelve hour season. And we show is going many seasons multiple seasons like at least five years, and so we're just rock and roll. I've I've been the first eight hours of the twelve hour season and also plea quill. And so I'm by by the next few months, right? The entire twelve hours. And then we'll we'll just shoot all of it and and share with our audience, and it's the new way of doing television, and then our audience just you finances. They buy shares. They've gone kick. Start throw some money our way, and that'll be part of one thing. This is because I have my own studio. I can do a network quality show for much. Less money than the network Homar God because for instance, that Star Trek discovery is over ten million dollars an episode game of thrones is over fifteen dollars and fifteen million dollars an episode is one show. Yes. Yeah. One hour, and but base command I can do it. So far. I've I've as I mentioned my audience is giving me a million dollars and with that I was able to shoot the two hour pilot and forty minutes of the second to our story and we're moving forward. So as I mentioned, we'll be starting new Kickstarter campaign on Monday. And if anyone wants to buy shares in space command, they can Email me, Mark, Zicree itchy mail dot com. And and I can send them all the information. It's and people around the world or buying shares. It's it's a completely new way of doing television. But but I really love it. Because I write it. I cast it I shoot it. There's no, you know, if you know, the the cast is one cast of amazing science fiction actors like they'll let me like Doug Jones and Robert Picard win Mira Furlan box lighter in the shell Nichols. If I went to a network and said, can I have this cast? They would say no you have to use an actor was just on some hitch. Show on the CW who can't act or women. That's not the CW. But they get the network at safely get the castle. You don't. And and I don't want to have that over my head. Another question. Travis. Yeah. I heard him talking about spirituality like they went to score, and they have to reach the level of spirituality. Yeah. I think that's the thing to focus on for your project. I'm in hardest myself. And I I've done a lot of monster type aiding and stuff like that. And haven't really really fast by so often, listen to coast to coast over the years, and you know, I just like hearing when somebody's in creative processes like this. Yes. And and you know, when when I talk about spirituality, it's you know, I'm open to whatever someone's personally are. But I think if if kindness is at the heart of that, then you're not gonna go wrong. I think you know, I I I mean Jesus, of course, love one another. I believe that. And you have to be a Christian Buddhist. Or or Jewish like, I am or or or even agnostic or any theorist. I mean kindness is basically what you do. It's the golden rule, and there's a version of the golden rule pretty much every every faith or every culture, and it's basically just become the kind of your family kind of people you love and be kind on the street. You know, if someone's trying to get into a parking spaces a garbage can blocking them over across the street and move the garbage cans, and it's just putting that into practice your life and small ways it has a ripple effect. You don't Robert Davi, Mark? Have you seen whom we're close friends with them? So if you ever need him in any of those episodes, let us know we'll get you in touch with them. Thank you, George. Thank you for that. He's got one of those faces that everybody recognizes of course, of course, let's go to Rick truck. Driving New Hampshire. Welcome to the program. Hi wreck. Go ahead, sir. Oh, thank you for taking my call. I thanks to Markelle good conversation tonight. To shop like a couple of questions. Please, sir. Yeah. Twilight zone. I used to see is it got that twirly little thing. Black and white. Yes. Yes. Are you still using that that theme, and you're still do show that all yeah? On the new twilight they're using digital same that. And those those motifs you have other. So I kinda to they're they're gorgeous. Yeah. That's what bring. Yeah. Bring a lot of people catching ju it's like the black hole. You know? Did you believe aliens? When you first started writing years Europe strips that you believe in any space off creatures of any kind. Definitely intelligent life in the universe. And you know, I don't really go beyond that in in saying, what's what's real? And what's not into view of foes or of that? But but I think that life probably throughout the university. Now, no planets are pretty much every star. And so I think life is going to be throughout the universe. Just like Harry for tile field. You don't grow all sorts of crops super. Thank you read. Capri. She it I feel like I'm committing a sin. If I watched the new twilight zone episodes, I wouldn't go that far. But it's definitely. It's not the old show. It's not what surly was able to pull off. I mean, you know, it takes such a lot of great people coming together and just the right way to make magic happen. You know, it's something catches fire, and it's lightning in a bottle in rod sterling certainly accomplished that any worse as he works harder to possibly could any he pulls it off.

Mark was great fun to go stay ship sets. And now what we're about to do because speech shooting. Second to our story is we're building the interior of alien hibernation ship, and we're building a creature in alien creature. And so that's what we're gonna kick. Start a campaign that was starting Monday to do that to finance to finance that. And as an interest investitures space committed to totally new way of doing television. And and I really love it. If we're going to do the entire twelve hour season this year, that's fast. Yes. But it's great. And I'm the only writer who wrote for both deep space nine in Avalon five. And both of those shows would you're standing sets, you you'd have basically converted warehouse or sound stage, and you would very very rarely leave that you would you basically shooting on your spaceship sets. And all of that stuff. And we cave set that we use for for the tunnels on Mars, and the asteroid belt and so forth. It's just great fun. It says I mean when I was a kid I was get a Christmas present of a trip to the star Trek's. I was there for the last episode. They have shot of ridgeville Star Trek. And when I go on my station sets that same thrill. It's just it's wonderful. Are you using computer graphics at all, yes? The first hour of the pilot that you can actually watch limits decide YouTube channel that our has nine hundred visual effects shots and the two hour pilot has nineteen hundred shots, which is more than Star Wars more than any TV show on the air. So I'm using visual arts all around the world. It's you know, my background is visual arts degrees, art. And so I love working with artists and really speak their language. Good for you back to the phones we go. Let's go to Mimi in Midland Texas to get started. Hello mimi. Had yours. How I am fine. How are you? I'm great. I'm so happy. They you and your guests are keeping this alive for the next generation. Oh, yes. Sure, all of our technology. We still you can't top this in terms of story writing. But I have a question. I think it was twilight zone. I could be wrong. It was something my parents. And I did together every week was watched that. And it was I think a later episode at I'm still remember vividly. I think it was you look just like number twelve. Yes. Yes. That's that's so called number twelve just looks just like you as written by. Oh. Jon allen. And it's it's about a future where everyone gets cosmic surgery certain age, and they all like, basically like each other. And it started a wonderful accident common Wilcox which just been into Killa Mockingbird. She plays the girl who chooses Brock Peters of rape. And and so they cast the actors from Tacoma in twilight zone, and it's a wonderful wonderful episode. What I'm wanting to know because my father was friends with him. And he was the name and the man they played the doctor and that episode that was. Richard long Richard long. Did he ever go off to do anything else? Teeny show called nanny. And the professor that he starred in was very popular at the time. All right super. Thanks me. Appreciate it. We have Blair in Sedona Arizona now. Go forward Blair. Thank you, George. Hey, Mark big fan of the twilight zone black and white episodes like black and white still making added timeless essence, and I'm wondering about the future of black and white and television, especially with holographic in three D TV that we might have in our living room. Yeah. Go ahead. Go ahead. Well, you know, it's funny. These black and white is I mean twilights it's the most gorgeous black and white TV show ever made. It was the director of photography was George Clements would work all the way back in the silence. He works with you and Charlie Chaplin, and he was just a mastery won an EMMY for fan twilight zone. But nowadays, you know, it takes courage to shoot something in black and white Roma which was a movie just once, you know, the the Oscar was shot in black and white, but you'll see that very often to go to a network executive TV executives say, hey, I want something in black and white takes a lot of a lot of nerve. And so so it would. But the new the new, you know, three televisions. Those sort of things these technologies the people really love working in. And and I love the bag of tricks of the modern day, and again because I'm free to do whatever. I wanna do I wanted to shoot something black and what I certainly couldn't that may be something. I do down the road. Blair, do you think twilight zone would work in color nowadays? Something so wonderful in classic about the black and white. You know, the show the original show a different feeling did. And when you watch the new episodes Jordan Peele, so it's there in color, and they're they don't look bad that they don't look great. They don't take your breath away. So the real the real answers all of this is the twilights was made by people who are geniuses. I mean, they were the top writers composers directors actors there wasn't anyone better than them at that time. And we're now really, and and it takes genius genius comes together in that way. It's it it lasts. And and so raw knew exactly what is doing when night gallery came out. It was in color, and it didn't have the same feeling as twilight zone. Universal. Rod was he was able to get a few good episodes through. But he was really wasn't happy with night gallery, and it kind of flat visual quality that was very inva- Matic of Universal's TV shows at the time Tomen LA Hoya. California's with us now Thomas go ahead, George thank you for taking my call. Mark fantastic work that you're doing thanks for to the complete space. Command. Ask you, you know, we're familiar in the nineteen sixties with the television shows twilight zone, and of course, Star Trek, but in nineteen sixty eight they were to mainstream television shows that involve science fiction a little bit of poor in a lot of conspiracy. One was called the invaders. Yes, it was about I very hostile extraterrestrial infiltration show was a British show called the prisoner. Yes. And that was. British or Patrick Mogollon produced financed scripted and directed and then even acted in the show brought in all of his favorite British actors. And as wondering if you would comment on both of those, of course to shows that I very very dearly. Love the invaders start ROY status. It was done by Quinn. Martin. It was a great paranoid show about an alien invasion where the aliens look like humans, except they they apparently they're race didn't have a pinkie finger. So they have trouble making their pinkie finger work with the other fingers, and that was kind of a tip. I was the giveaway. And it was just a wonderful show. The music was great really creepy show. And I watched it again recently, and it holds up the actors are wonderful and the prisoner again was just a brilliant catching the going was phenomenal as the creative head of the show. But also the star of it, and it was shot in a small town in Wales, and I actually Elaine, and I my wife, and I actually went there on vacation about ten years ago and stay there and to to walk through those around those buildings and just live through you know, what what what Patrick McGowan had had experienced. It was just a thrill, and and it was yeah. It was it was a great show. And again, ended another holds up these are both very intelligent TV shows. And and the acting the talent that you had those in England and America in the late sixties those of us television late in the late sixties. You would see the same actors on every show there only been networks. So someone might be on Star Trek one week, and then Gilligan's island the next and so so the invaders def. Benefited from those those actors and the prisoner my God, Leo mckern, all these amazing British actors, we own the curling onto rumpole of the Bailey in later years, and he was just one of the great great actors of British television. When I was five years old. My father used to watch his show called science fiction theatre. I remember this because I remember the music in everything else in he just loved that program. And that was the prelude to the twilight zone, wasn't it. Dryer and a little more, you know, sort of like here's a robot. And we're going to do an upset about a robot. So the the creative inspiration for it was very different. But it's an entertaining show. And I mean, I think it's great that we live in a time where you can watch pretty much any show you want to you can find them on on DVD or Blu Ray or find them on on the internet. And that's that those of us television back in the sixties. You couldn't do that. You didn't have that luxury VCR's? There was no Blu Ray, none of that. And if he wants to show, you may never see it again, until of course, technology allowed us that. I remember they did an episode on you, and they had a tight shot of a radar screen with all these little blips of you. I think I think the show lasted only a couple years short lived Hitchcock lasted a long time, the his cock show and twilights unless it five seasons. But a lotta shows where you know, one or two seasons out what remember the one step. He on. Yes. Yes. That was a classic to another really fun show. Sure was next up. Let's go to Perry in California. Welcome to the show. Hi, perry. Go ahead, sir. George you rate. Thank you. Hello, mark. Hello. Yeah. I I just really appreciate all you, do, you know, when you you teach students, you know, come in and teach acting and whatever you do. I really appreciate that, my friend. Thank you. Thank you. I think it's important to to to pay a forward, you know, twenty six years ago, a lot of my friends in Hollywood of feeling very depressed and very bummed out. Very, you know, Hollywood can really be very corrosive. And I started around table where people could come writers directors actors producers, and we would meet once a week. And and then we have an an Email list where you could be to all the members and six people, and and that's when we have all sorts all over the country, and again, it's just a supportive environment for people where they feel safe. They supported there's no judgment. There's no Eric's. And and it's just thrived. I again, it goes back to what right bradberry taught me when I was ten which is, you know, if you want to create a compassionate world, you your your work. You know, when I do in my work, and my writing is compassionate, and what to do in my life is as well. And and I think people recognize the authencity of what I'm when I'm about. And so I I'm very gratified when people say those things, yes. A question there. I wanna ask you, what do you think of the new Star Trek series? I think it's really interesting, but, you know, the the special effects, and you know, like, the holographic, you know, instead of a viewing screen they're actually there. Now, this is just toast enterprise in just pre Kirk. Yes. Yes. Why did they go? You know, what the concept of going back into the past? Yeah. I don't know. It's it's strange choice because the technologies actually beyond the original Star Trek. And so it's always kind of butting head against that. And it's it's it's a very interesting show. My Doug Jones stars in space. Command is all starring in Star Trek discovery just had dinner the other night. And you know, he's terrific Seru. There's some very talented actors on the show and the visual effects are great. The writing is a little bit. In hot and cold since you'll have some fun and sets episodes legal. What was that they have an actor playing Spock who's the grandson of Gregory Peck?.

These are very, entertaining and amazing hiding Virginia can you? Please talk about the difference between a ghost and a demon. And is one turn into the other is I was asking are d- Manala gist earlier. There is a difference. The the ghost is just a disembodied spirits that's floating around hovering around doing what it does. The demon is something evil sent by whatever the, you know, evil forces, the devil, whatever it might be two distinct different things ghosts in demons two different things. Both part of the afterlife. Yes. No question about it. No in. I'd rather run into a goat than a demon. What if the ghost turns into a demon though, I'm not sure it does. I mean, I don't think demon is. I don't think a demon is a dead spirit. You know from a person who passed on. I think it's. It's part of this universe. In was always. There could be a fallen angel could be something. But I don't I don't think it comes from a dead person. So like, okay, I talk about Richard Ramirez. I always talk about him. So when he died heated such bad stuff to the. He was the night. Stalker night stalker. Yeah. So his spirit automatically become a demon or become a ghost. I don't think he became either.

And information that he had died, and nobody believed nobody believed it at all. And we didn't want to be the first to go with the story until we had verified. Of course, that's the old newsman in me. But then when the night county sheriff's department in mid and said that he had passed on they publicly sent out a release on that. That's when we went to the story, but we will devote the portion of next Friday night. Going into Saturday, which was the thirteenth through to art Bellas.

But it's over like fifteen that care the same story, and we would still this almost like we were taken into a different dimension filling.

And then all the kids kind of got scared because they probably talked to the adults in the house about it. And they said, oh, you better buying the, Dev. Bowl, and this and that doesn't exist. Then the kid started ignoring this being and then he started a kind of leaving every kid that would ignore him. And I was the last kid 'cause I was the youngest that he kinda paid attention to every kid with sleeping in the house when night, and then he came back in and I was kinda scared to everybody else's scared.

I said I'm scared of him. And she said you have to tell them to go away. And so he came back and did the same thing. I put the covers over my head and I yield go away, and he never came back.
