It’s been a long time since I had a genuine pointy-breast post–something I think we can all agree this blog is the lesser for–and I found a pair where I least expected them. I never watched the original “Outer Limits” series, but with the new digital signals, we get the THIStv channel which shows an assortment of old movies and TV shows–including “The Outer Limits”.
So I set the ol’ MythTV to record them and finally got around to watching an episode called “ZZZZZ”, which is the story of a queen bee who takes human form. This, naturally being a draining transformation, causes her to swoon on the lawn of a bee scientist.
It was a strange episode. Or, I don’t know, maybe it was completely characteristic of the show. Having only seen one episode, I cannot say. (I did watch the ‘90s series, though, on Showtime, and liked it.)
It was also kind of cool that the actress, Joanna Frank, was someone I had seen before, in the much later series “L.A. Law”. As it turns out, she’s TV mogul Steven Bochco’s sister, and was actually married to Alan Rachins, whose wife (then, ex-wife, I believe) she played on that show!
Here’s a picture of her about to enjoy some pollen. (I’m not good at screen-caps yet, but these turned out pretty well!)
I shall view more “Outer Limits” in the hopes of finding more specimens of mammaris conniculus. Note that the above are from ’64 or ’65, and so are the latest of that era we’ve yet found!
