One step beyond box set
Anyone who has ever had a chance to see any of the original episodes of One Step Beyond has truly experienced great television, the way it should be even today in our so called "state of the art" world.

It really doesn't take a whole lot to make a great, convincing program. The mood and music and stories behind each episode is disturbing even now. My hubby found a 2 CD box set of the series that only cost us $5.00! But what great episodes they are. I would really like to own all of the series, if they are still available.

Once again, One Step Beyond was real television. Forget about the new reality shows of today. I'll gladly take one step beyond back to the way real great t.v. shows were meant to be.

Trivia

Through an oversight, Worldvision didn't renew the copyrights on most episodes of this series when they expired in the late 1980s, and they thus fell into the public domain. Since royalties didn't have to be paid to Worldvision, the result was a revival of the series on UHF and cable television and on VHS and DVD. Since well-worn syndication prints were and are typically used by those media, the results often leave something to be desired, quality-wise.

Alternate Versions

During its initial network run as "Alcoa Presents One Step Beyond", the opening credits featured shots of the aluminum industry (the full name of Alcoa was the Aluminum Company of America). When the series went into syndication as "One Step Beyond", a new opening credit sequence featuring a starry background was substituted. Starting in 1992, the Sci-Fi Channel aired prints with a third version, with a blue-tinted point of view from a camera roaming through a 1950s-era house. The Sci-Fi prints also added short teasers before the credits (excerpts from the episode) and the episode titles, as well as modified closing credits with still shots of the house for a background, all tinted blue. Those prints were also reedited to provide more time for commercials.
