After watching the fun documentary Harlan Ellison: Dreams with Sharp Teeth, I wanted to see the "Outer Limits" episode that he'd written: "Demon with a Glass Hand." An Internet search led me to believe it might be on the Vol. 3 Disc 1 DVD, but I rented that and although the sleeve was labeled correctly, it had "Vol. 2 Disc 2" in it.

The DVD descriptions don't list which episode is on which disc. Can someone help me find the right disc?

I've read some complaints about that set being not quite properly labeled or menu'd in general so I'm not surprised there's some confusion. Several reviewers on Amazon, including one named James May, seem to point to that.

Sounds like they are double sided discs, and a couple of episodes listed on one disc actually start up on the next, as in disc 1.

The MGM press release for that box set list the Demon With the Glass Hand on "Disc 5" which I presume to the one listed as Vol 3, Disc 1 on our set? But I'll try to doublecheck that further, seems some clarification is in order.

And that's Side B of Disc 5 for that matter...

More as we can figure it out more explicitly.

The envelope said Vol. 3 Disc 1, but it has these episodes:

Side A
The Invisible Enemy (with Adam West)
Wolf 359
I, Robot (with Leonard Nimoy)
The Inheritors-Part 1 (with Robert Duvall)

Side B
The Inheritors-Part 2
Keeper Of The Purple Twilight

Disc 2 was apparently shipped in the Disc 1 envelope. Does the Disc 2 envelope have Disc 1?

Eep! Sorry about that, Cinenaut - you're right, disc 1 is in the sleeve for disc 2, we'll switch em as soon as we receive your return.

Yeah you need Disc 1 of Vol 3

That Disc also has the episode called "The Soldier" which I beleive was also written by Ellison.

Jim Cameron had to give writing credit to Ellison on "The Terminator" since the plot borrowed heavily from these two stories.

So, that means I should just rent the same DVD again, I guess?

Oh, I didn't realize it was those two episodes.

After watching "The Invisible Enemy," I have to wonder if that episode lent some inspiration to the makers of "Tremors." Of course, they took the concept in a fun, comic direction.

Is it safe for me to rent that same one again so I can get the correct disc?

Because it would be really frustrating if I rented it and it was the wrong disc again.

I gotcha! It is indeed safe for you to rent it again.

Okay, thank you! I didn't want to rent the same one again until I heard from you that the swap had been made.
