My friend Chris recently brought this series to my attention. I have been watching the ones available while I have been taking breaks from my usual activities. You can get the full series from Amazon on DVD though and it is not that expensive.
So far, the video below is my favorite episode. This series has a strong “Twilight Zone” feel to it.
Created by Merwin Gerard and produced by Collier Young, “One Step Beyond” was hosted by John Newland, “your guide to the supernatural” (also credited as “Our guide into the world of the unknown”). Newland, who also directed every episode, presented tales that explored paranormal events and various situations that defied “logical” explanation. Unlike other anthology programs, the ABC network series episodes were presented in the form of straightforward thirty-minute docudramas, all said to be based on true events.
