    I Love The Twilight Zone.

    At least I used to. I haven't seen it for a long time. There were times I thought I was living in the "Twilight Zone". I can still hear that voice. "This is Rod Serling. You have entered the Twilight Zone"

    Watching The Marathon Now...

    I watched the original TZ when I was small. Now, with a group of like-minded friends I try to catch the marathons whenever possible; with sleeping bags and the prerequisite viewing beverages and snacks we camp out in front of the T.V.

    Anyone ever see "Paradise Alley"

    or " Requiem for a Heavyweight"? NOT TZ, but other examples of Rod Serling's power to weave tales that both terrify and delight us. Or any others of his "Playhouse 90" episodes? Note that Requiem was done twice, once as a filmed play with Anthony Quinn and the original with...

    New Years Day Marathon

    I love the original twilight zone. Many of the episodes brought up philosophical questions. Liek the one "eye of the beholder" where everyone was ugly and "normal" looking people were the ugly ones. Some episodes were funny. Some were kind of schlocky in a...

    The Eye Of The Beholder

    I inherited my love of movies & classic TV shows from my dad and saw the same episodes of TZ as he first watched as a boy back in the early 60s on British TV. Before we began watching them, he said he wanted to try something. He said that instead of watching the pilot, "Where Is...

    In The 80s

    I really started watching the show when the "new" ones came out in the 80s. Loved this show. Twilight Zone the Movie scared the pea out of me, the scene with the deamon on the ming of the plane...eesh. I watch all of them now, especially the originals.
