"There is nothing wrong with your television set.
Do not attempt to adjust the picture.
We are in control of the transmission.
If we wish to make it louder, we will turn up the volume.
If we want it softer, we will turn it down.
We control the horizontal and the vertical.
We can alter the focus, to sharpen or distort the picture.
For the next hour, we will control all that you see and hear.
Believe me, there is nothing wrong with your television set.
You are about to take an adventure.
You are about to experience the awe which is associated with a journey to - The Outer Limits."
