Goofs

Sally takes 8 seconds to get from the cliff back to the car. Matt waits until he hears her start the car before he runs back to the car-taking 20 seconds (2.5 x the time it took Sally). He should have at least gotten there in the same amount of time, but even so, if he had arrived in 16 seconds he would have been there before the car sped away. Not plausible. See more »

Good First Episode!
20 October 2016 | by b_kiteSee all my reviews

The first episode of "One Step Beyond" starts as newlywed couple Matt (Skip Homeier) and Sally (Virginia Leigh, who sports a rather silly southern accent and would go on to star in the cult b movie classic "The Brain That Wouldn't Die" three years later) when on there honeymoon, Sally begins to behave strangely, running off and not even recognizing who Matt is. He manages to track her to a house with the help of a police officer, and Sally begins explaining that she is someone else. She is taken to the local hospital where, the doctor (the great Harry Townes) reveals to Matt that she isn't his wife anymore. Is Sally crazy or is she really a bride possessed?.

Overall, I though this was a pretty good way to start the series off, the acting is pretty solid and John Newland is great in the opening and closing segments in his Rod Serling-esq role, the ending however is my only real problem it seems rather forced and abrupt, but still a solid first entry.
