~ There is Nothing Wrong with Your Monitor (Please Stand By … )

there is nothing wrong with your monitor
do not attempt to adjust the picture
we are controlling transmission
if we wish to make it louder,
we will bring up the volume
if we wish to make it softer,
we will tune it to a whisper
we will control the horizontal
we will control the vertical
we can roll the image, make it flutter
we can change the focus to a soft blur
or sharpen it to crystal clarity
for the next hour sit quietly and
we will control all that you see and hear
we repeat: there is nothing wrong with your monitor
you are about to participate in a great adventure
you are about to experience
the awe and mystery which reaches
from the inner mind
to the outer limits
please stand by

adapted from the opening narration
of episode 1, “the galaxy being,”
from the original television show, “the outer limits”
aired september 16, 1963
