What the Critics Say

"The landmark series was Dimension X, which was broadcast by NBC....It was the first radio series to treat science fiction in an adult way." (Mike Ashley, Transformations: The History of the Science-Fiction Magazine 1950 to 1970)

Average

I purchased this because I enjoy listening to old radio dramas like the twilight zone. The quality and storyline of this collection is not as good as the twilight zone. I found the stories predictable and not very memorable. If your looking for something to pass the time or fill a gap, this is perfect. Otherwise, I would skip this one.
