The Outer Limits: Behold, Eck!

By accident, an alien being, named Eck from a two dimension world, breaks in ours and creates rifts and tensions and, only the people who wear spectacles fashioned by eye specialist doctor James Stone can see it but Eck takes them off to protect its privacy. Nevertheless, the doctor establishes a link with the being which asks a special lens to see the doorway to return home safe and avoid the destruction of the Earth.

Episode Quotes
Opening Narration: Since the first living thing gazed upward through the darkness, Man has seldom been content merely to be born, to endure, and to die. With a curious fervor he has struggled to unlock the mysteries of creation and of the world in which he lives. Sometimes he has won. Sometimes he has lost. And sometimes, in the tumbling torrents of space and time, he has brief glimpses of a world he never even dreams...

Closing Narration: Paradoxically, Man's endless search for knowledge has often plundered his courage and warped his vision, so that he has faced the unknown with terror rather than awe, and probed the darkness with a scream rather than a light. Yet there have always been men who have touched the texture of tomorrow with understanding and courage. Through these men, we may yet touch the stars.

Eck:In my world, nothing can prevail against fire. ou could not understand, it is too different, too far removed from anything you could imagine. It is not even a world at all, as you think of it.
