Science Fiction Theatre was a science fiction television program that aired from April 9, 1955 to April 6, 1957. It was George McFly's favorite show and he wouldn't miss it for anything.

As Marty McFly followed his father to his house on November 8, 1955, George mentioned the program. This inspired Marty to don his radiation suit and pose as "Darth Vader" later that night.

Behind the scenes

  • Ironically, the actor Michael Fox starred in the program several times. When Michael J. Fox first joined the Screen Actors Guild, he added the middle initial 'J' to his name to avoid confusion with Fox — and also because of an SAG rule that no two actors could have the same or similar names.
  • The program was syndicated, so it appeared on different nights in different cities, usually on "independent" television stations.
  • The episode of Science Fiction Theatre which George missed as a result of attending the Enchantment Under the Sea dance on November 12, 1955 was entitled "The Hastings Secret" and starred Bill Williams and his wife Barbara Hale.
