    I remember that series, ever did see the last episode.

    I did watch a lot of original Twilight Zone episodes as well, I have managed to get all of them now..there is about 168 of them, so its going to take a long time to watch them all!

    yes i know Twilight Zone and the Outer limits i remember a episode named Archictes of the Fear wooooooooo i send you the link monsieur


    The world has entered a Cold War-esque setting in which nuclear holocaust appears imminent. In the hope of staving off an apocalyptic military confrontation between nations, an idealistic group of scientists, working at United Labs, plan to stage a fake alien invasion of Earth, in an effort to unite all humanity against a perceived common enemy. The scientists have managed to study the planetary conditions on the planet Theta. They draw lots, and physicist Dr. Alan Leighton is chosen to undergo radical surgical procedures that will transform him into a projected figure from a planet with a different atmosphere. Leighton's death is faked and the bizarre series of transplants and modifications to his body proceed. His wife Yvette persists in not believing he is dead; she feels sympathetic pain as Alan suffers on the operating table. Complications arise when the effects of Leighton's transformation extend beyond his physical appearance and begin to affect his mind, a situation compounded by the scientist's strong psychic link to his pregnant wife.
    The scientists' plan is for Dr. Leighton as the Thetan creature, equipped with an energy weapon and spaceship, to land at the United Nations in an effort to create panic initially. This panic, in theory, will be resolved as the world unites to fight the invader. Alan, now a perfect simulation of an inhabitant of the planet Theta, is launched into orbit as a weather satellite--but the mission goes awry when the spaceship comes down off course and lands in the woods near the United Labs facility. After disintegrating their station wagon with his laser pistol, the doctor is severely wounded by three duck hunters with shotguns and he stumbles back to the lab. Yvette again feels his pain and hurries to the lab looking for her husband. She arrives as the Thetan enters and collapses to the floor. Before dying of mortal wounds, the creature demonstrates "the mark against evil", a personal gesture they both shared and Yvette realizes the horrifying truth that the alien is in fact her husband.

    It is interesting how some of these sci-fi series deal with events that could and probably have happened in real life.

    The Champions

    Craig Stirling, Sharron Macready and Richard Barrett were agents for Nemesis, an international intelligence organization based in Geneva. Their first mission as a team was to investigate some potentially lethal experiments in Communist China, but when they were escaping, their plane was damaged. They crashed into a remote part of the Himalayas where they were rescued by members an unknown civilization. They came away from the encounter with superhuman powers--telepathy, superior strength, memory, etc.--and returned to the outside world as "Champions of law, order and justice",
