Has anyone seen the episode from TFTD titled, "Levitation"? I've not seen this one and would like to hear more about it. It aired on Season One of the series.

Summary:

Written by David Gerrold.

Ok...I'm not advocating this at all, as I'm sure the copyright prevents this, but it appears that someone posted the entire episode (in parts) on Youtube. You should be able to find your answer there.

What can I say..it's a good episode, and some may want to still watch it:) If you want the quick synopsis, the last 3 minutes of the show pretty much sum the entire thing up.

Very interesting....I didn't think my querry would incite any response.


Since posting, I've been digging around and have found this and other episodes. Including the CREEPY theme music. Damn those episodes scared the hell out of me as a kid.

Its a 20min episode, just watch the whole dang thing.


This series was incredibly good. Its unfortunate nothing along this horror genre compares today.

Sounds like it's the same David Gerrold that wrote "The Trouble with Tribbles."
