With the success of "Tales from the Crypt," HBO wanted a science-fiction anthology series that could capture the same audience and push the boundaries of pay-cable. They lined up talent like William Shatner, Ron Perlman, Kevin Pollak, Tobe Hooper and more. When "Perversions of Science" premiered on June 7, 1997, audiences didn't exactly deliver the kind of hit numbers they had with "...Crypt." We'll re-examine the only 10 episodes that ever made it.

Follow Sci-Fi 5 for your daily dose of science-fiction history.
