    I need to go back on Netflix

    and watch the whole series again- the most interesting TV series in television history. And it's probably one of the few vintage shows that I will watch. ( Also Alfred Hitchcock movies are great).

    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...

    The most ironic and cruel of the Twilight Zone

    episodes has to be Time Enough At Last, where a meek bank teller whose only escape is reading, survives a nuclear war and thinking he will finally be left in peace to read, accidentally breaks his glasses.

    I have the book, The Twilight Zone Companion.

    Great book, has all the stories & actors in the stories. Excellent reference. It tells of some episodes not shown in syndication, some are now shown. However, The encounter is not, and a good story too ! Also I don't think An Encounter at Owl Creek is shown, That's a good one...

    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.

    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"

    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.
