The Man From Earth
First of all, thanks to @DancesWithWookies for commissioning this. I'm glad I watched the movie and the podcast provided some great listening.
While watching the movie, it struck me as having a very similar concept to the 1960 Twilight Zone episode, "Long Live Walter Jameson", written by fellow scf-fi writer Charlie Beaumont. I then started reading about Jerome Bixby and found out he actually wrote one of the most famous TZ episodes, "It's a Good Life". I also read that he started the script for The Man From Earth in the early 60s, so it's easy to associate this movie with the TZ episode and even speculate on the possibility that the film was inspired by the 1960 show.
'Jameson' explores some similar themes in its 25 minutes like the emotional weight of living as an immortal, outliving your loved ones and the effect it can have on those abandoned loved ones. It's a great episode and works as an interesting companion piece to the film. I'm curious if anyone else has seen both of these.
Also, J&A discussed the budget for this film on the cast and guessed that it cost about a million to make. According to this article, it only cost $200,000.
