"Second Chance" is an episode of the original "
The Outer Limits" television show. It first aired on 2 March, 1964, during the first season.
:"When fear is too terrible, when reality is too agonizing, we seek escape in manufactured danger, in the thrills and pleasures of pretending-in the amusement parks of our unamusing world. Here, in frantic pretending, Man finds escape and temporary peace, and goes home tired enough to sleep a short, deep sleep. But what happens here when night comes? When pretending ends, and reality begins?"
A frustrated wanderer has found a temporary job - operating a mock-up of a spaceship at a carnival. However an alien modifies the attraction into a real spaceship, and, passing himself off as a giant talking chicken, invites aboard a group of misfits each of whom is refusing to face realities in their lives. Trapped aboard the spaceship, they are offered the opportunity to colonize a planet that would other wise threaten both the alien's own planet and Earth in the near future. To succeed, however, they must overcome their own deep-seated unwillingness to face their own true natures.
This episode has no closing narration.
