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.

I don't think we'll ever see anything on TV like TTZ original because the American population has been dumbed down by our progressive and feminist school system for 40 years, which means that television programing has to now rely on one or some combination of of several things for good ratings:<br />
--T&amp;A<br />
--gratuitous violence<br />
--a sixth grade vocabulary<br />
--constant 'drama' and 'hook-ups' like a soap opera<br />
--themes about nothing, so no one will be offended<br />
--plots so stupid and obvious that you don't have to think about anything while watching<br />
--'reality' settings that contain no 'reality', but are dominated by lots of hand wringing over 'action' which you rarely actually see<br />

Sorry, the time of really genius TV programming is way gone.

Thanks. So I didn't -imagine the episode- :-D .. As fruitless as one of my searches went, I was beginning to wonder if I had... I loved the original series too... Do any shows of this variety still exist today though? There were some old radio shows sort of along these same lines too, but I have yet to see anything really exactly like TZ... Outer Limits is sort of in the same ballpark I guess...

Oh yeah, I remember that one too but not the name, I will try and find it and let you know....

Thank God you're here. Can you tell me the name of "new" 80's era TZ episode where the guy was trapped between seconds where the workmen were dismantling the previous second and building the next? I wanna see this one again but don't know the title.... The movie "Langoliers" stole this whole concept Later....
