This month marks the 50th anniversary of the premier of the original Outer Limits on TV. Sadly very little has been done to commemorate this event. The Outer Limits 50th Anniversary Tribute at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention in August is the only event I am aware of in the U.S.
This month the Syfy cable channel is running a 2 hour Syfy 20th Anniversary Special. Outer Limits is seen briefly several times near the beginning but does not get any coverage.
