    I have a vague memory of that episode and now want to see it again.

    I've never found horror-slasher movies entertaining, because I could not buy into them, so they're laughable, not scary. But I found Twilight Zone chilling, because it made me think, and all those possibilities of the unknown were quite scary.

    Along with the Twilight Zone I also really liked The Outer Limits.

    BTW, does anyone remember a series called Project Blue Book (I think?)?

    The original Outer Limits series gave me nightmares as a child when I first saw it.

    Project U.F.O. Was a TV series loosely based on Project Blue Book. In some countries the series was known as Project Blue Book.

    + 1 for Battlestar Galatica, Star Wars and Star Trek, loved those shows. How about Lost in Space--used to love that show as well! By chance, is Wrath of Khan the one where one of the Star Trekkers gets that scorpion bug thing inserted in his ear?

    Also, loved Star Wars quite a bit I have the R2-D2 special edition Droid phone! :D

    Yes to that. Late 70's show loosely based on the
    U.S. Air Force "Project Blue Book" which investigated UFO sightings. Was pretty good for the era.

    Yes, Khan was the crazed guy who inserted bugs into people.

    I'm going to have to google the R2-D2 phone now. It sounds great. I once saw a hilarious backpack shaped like C3PO -- you wore it like Chewbacca wore C3PO on his back after he'd been taken apart for scrap.

    Oh, look, an iPad is involved: http://www.geekalerts.com/c-3po-backpack/

    Agree with the sleepless nights. Especially after this episode "The Galaxy Being" where the alien is able to follow a TV signal and materialize on Earth.
