If you enjoy tales of the bizarre or supernatural like THE OUTER LIMITS or TWILIGHT ZONE, this one's for you! The plot that you read happens in ACT 1. The mystery builds up in ACT 2 with Maru (played by Jada Rowland) who has a soft & delicate voice. At the 23-minute mark, Pete Herron (played by Tony Roberts) does a great description of what Maru was like. At the 27-minute 49-second mark, when Maru says, "When you're filled with lve, there's no room for fear", that sounded good for a Hallmark card. At the end of ACT 3 at the 41-minute mark, the music isn't eerie nor horrific, but otherworldly.


I really liked this episode! Held my interest from start to finish. I rate it as 4 out of 5 invisible space ships. I love teh outer limits and Twilight zone and you are right this one is for me


A MESSAGE FROM SPACE proves that men will do anything for a pretty girl, be it leave their life on earth behind for an unknown future on another planet, or waste an hour of their life listening to a very dull episode of Radio Mystery Theater. 1 star only - JUROR #4.


Such a great episode. You'll fall hopelessly in love with Jada Rowland too. The ethereal music and sound effects will transport you. Bryce Bond is captivating with his incredible powers of perception. Bar far the most immersive RMT episode I've ever heard.


I understand the need to quickly exposure the characters and their relationship and everything, but the opening conversation of this one is probably the most stilted, unnatural thing I’ve heard on the show. The author self-insert from the uncle making the standard 1970’s case for UFOs doesn’t help either.

This is a real slice of the 70s paranormal scene- crop circles, ley lines, loving space brothers. All it needs is Leonard Nimoy introducing In Search Of.
