Abstract

In a medium already renowned for its intrusive presence in the American home, few television shows have featured opening credit sequences as calculatedly invasive as that of The Outer Limits. A narrational entity known only as the "control voice" opened each week's episode with these unnerving words of assurance: There is nothing wrong with your television set.
