On “The Jack Benny Show,” Jack has a terrible time trying to listen to the 1950 World Series. When he’s not being interrupted by visitors, his radio keeps jumping between a performance of “Bali Hai” and a boxing match from the 1920s. Then “X Minus One” adapts Ray Bradbury’s classic short story, “The Veldt.” How real is too real for the television of the future?
