Space Age TV: Tales of Tomorrow: The Trial In Space

Today, for your viewing pleasure, Space Age TV presents The Trial in Space, the first episode of Tales of Tomorrow!

Tales of Tomorrow was a 1951 Anthology series. Think ‘The Twilight Zone’, but earlier and performed live. Tales of Tomorrow featured a lot of stories from Galaxy Science Fiction Magazine, in addition to stuff like 20,000 leagues under the sea and Frankenstein. By virtue of being a live show, it’s less polished, and less perfect than The Twilight Zone. It’s also super fun.

This episode starts as a courtroom drama, and then the larger story unfolds in flashbacks. It’s not perfect, but that doesn’t matter, it’s wonderful.
