“Individual madness or shared nightmare … the answer lies in the search for safe harbor.”

Greetings travelers, The Fifth Dimension drifts deeper into Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone. The latest stop is aboard the Bradbury Heavy Mission spacecraft, where a team of astronauts choose between a suicide mission to Mars or certain death at home in a twisted tale titled “Six Degrees of Freedom”.

Our subjects in this episode are the Bradbury flight team, each of whom must wrestle with his or her own emotions for the sake of the group and their mission. It’s a struggle that becomes life-threatening when one of the crew starts believing that nothing they’re experiencing is really happening.

As always, co-hosts Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, Editorial Director Matt Melis, Eleanor Edwards, and Samantha Kuykendall are your guides through the latest harrowing chapter in the Zone.
