All the shows in this series are very good. Just finished listening to:

The Ravine 04-02-84

A really good thriller that will keep you on your toes.

That's a good one. Right up to the end I wasn't sure how it was going to come out.

May 21, 1984 8 "A Sound Of Thunder" - Excellent - Time travel story
May 28, 1984 9 "The Man" Really good Biblical
Jun 04, 1984 10 "The Wind" Good and scary

Yes, the production values on Bradbury 13 are excellent. I love Ray Bradbury's work and this show captures its essence beautifully. I only wish there were more than just 13 episodes, like maybe 451? My personal favorite episode is "Kaleidescope".

If you like Bradbury 13, there was also a TV series called Ray Bradury Theatre . Done in the mid-'80s and early '90s. It was a little on the low budget side in terms of production values, but more often than not, the storytelling makes up for it.

"The Man" is a great story. I love it.

I played it for my sister once and she was stunned by it.
