  • Today's aspirants want this. The future-glance episode, so well realised, would be best as a noire film, and all original contributors, are foremost in my mind. Gilgamesh indeed, alone but purposeful at end. The best of writing, acting and construct.

    Mr. Harlan Ellison: So gifted but out of kilter re current time with his insights, exorcised through short story or script writing. A man who feels the pain of "televising" the vision but continues, making compromises to ensure the vision-intact rockets on-through;
    US SCI-FI TV 1960s : Stridently versus the Gleasons etc - future-thought against pantomime,and
    Stevens/Stefano : Thinking always to the audience that thought "hey...what if?"
    The Directors, Set Makers : Making so much with little, and, even adults hide behind couches.

    Even now I hide but think. Forget "Monster of the Week" - just read the paper and what is coming tomorrow.
