The Outer Limits: "The Sandkings" starring three generations of the Bridges family

Unfortunately, YouTube won't allow me to embed this sweet piece of science fiction television history: “The Sandkings” (1995), the first episode of the revived classic 1960’s SF TV series The Outer Limits, about a rogue government researcher studying a sample of soil brought back from a mission to Mars.

Starring Beau Bridges as the megalomaniacal Dr. Simon Kress; the lovely Helen Shaver as his wife, Cathy; Dylan Bridges as their young son, Josh; and veteran Hollywood actor Lloyd Bridges as the family patriarch, Colonel Kress. Loosely based on the novelette “Sandkings” by George R. R. Martin, which as first published in the August 1979 issue of Omni magazine and won both a Hugo Award and a Nebula Award!
