Brief Synopsis:
To combine the two part episode “The Inheritors” from the Outer limits tv series back into the TV movie it should have been.
Intention:
I always enjoyed the old 1960′s Outer Limits Tv show. A somewhat competitor for the Twillight Zone, the Outer Limits differed in that each episode was roughly 50 mins and dealt mostly with Beings from outer space. Upon watching the Inheritors again (a while back), it proved that despite many saying the show was already on a downward spiral when this episode aired, that it still had much good left in it and reminds you of why it was praised to begin with.
Additional Notes:
Plot Without spoiling too much: After being shot in the head, a soldier gains a genius i.q. and begins working fervently towards a mysterious scientific goal. I should mention that this also stars a young Robert Duvall. If you want to watch a good, classic and original science fiction film from the old days when they knew how to make this type of genre properly, you will not be let down with this tv movie I present for you.
Release Information
NTSC DVD-5
Editing Details:
12 mins had to be cut in order for this to work. I also had to alter the opening credit narration so it long no longer mentions the outer limits being only 1 hour. I also had to alter the title so it only says “the inheritors” without the “part 1″ underneath it.
By removing some of the fluff we now have a much tighter, and faster paced version without sacrificing the classic merit from the show

*** I had to leave in one roughly 30 second recap that appears towards the middle for editing reasons

FanEdit Review by Molasar

Title/FanEditor: The Inheritors – A TV Film from the Outer Limits v1 by tranzor

The Edit: The cuts are clean and they flow beautifully. As a TV film, it maintains the old fashioned look and feel of a production from the mid-60s — the commercial fade outs, the melodramatic music, the opening and closing credits. As a TV movie it works. It does not play like two episodes put together, although the short recap mid-way through seems completely out of place and redundant. It is unnecessary. Other than that one instance, I think it’s a great example of editing. ****/*****

Image Quality: The 4:3 picture is excellent. It’s sharp and clean with deep blacks and bright whites. For a 44 year old show, it looked amazing on my display. It’s billed as a TV movie so there is no deduction for its aspect ratio. *****/*****

Audio Quality: A well balanced aural experience. Crisp and clear with no hiss. *****/*****

The DVD: Static menu.

Overall Rating: A must for fans of The Outer Limits, Twilight Zone, or Sci-Fi in general. ****/***** (not an average)

Reviewed using Sony 51” 16×9 RPTV with Oppo DVD player upconverting to 1080i via DVI and Onkyo 650 Watt 5.1 surround sound
