This week of BINGE watching? I need to escape from 2021.
One Step Beyond
Like The Twilight Zone, One Step Beyond is a hosted anthology series about other-wordly phenomena. But it actually debuted nine months before The Twilight Zone.
The TWILIGHT ZONE has stood the test of time. However, I enjoy watching ONE STEP BEYOND on YouTube.
One Step Beyond": The Visitor.  May 10 1960.
A bitter wife (Joan Fontaine) is visited by a younger version of her husband (Warren Beatty), who wants to rekindle their failing marriage.


Twilight Zone is beyond compare but, yes, One Step Beyond and the original Outer Limits have some excellent episodes.

@juan: 200 points

Juan got the two names right but he was a bit off on the spelling of Gustav's first name.  No biggie, because after much shuffling of clipboards, filled in forms, ripped pages from encyclopedias, scribbled notebook pages and a bunch of snapped in half pencils, my panel of expert judges came to the conclusion that juan was close enough to win a full 200 points.  This does raise an interesting point on these name quizzes.  If your spelling is off a little, or you submit a Johnny for John, a Harold for Harry, a Teddy for Ted, or a Rik for Rikki, you will be given the nod for having made the correct guess.

Gustav was a college professor of music but sadly nobody selected that particular occupation.
