Happy Twilight Zone Day Today!

"The Invaders"

Though nobody seems know exactly why, today is known in some parts as Twilight Zone Day, and who are we to dispute a holiday which honors one of our favorite TV shows?  It's a show we've been watching since we were little, and even today more than fifty years later, Twilight Zone retains its class and its ability to entertain with a unique twist.  Rather than write something that you probably already know about the show, we thought we'd just offer up a selection of images from some of our favorite episodes.  With 159 to choose from that's a lot of great material, and even more tremendous performances to enjoy. 

Rod Serling intro for "Nick of Time"

"Time Enough at Last"

"The Dummy"

"The Long Morrow"

"I Sing the Body Electric"
"The Passersby"


"Walking Distance"

"To Serve Man"

"People Are Alike All Over"
"Nightmare at 20,000 Feet"

"The Howling Man"
"The Odyssey of Flight 33"

"Eye of the Beholder"

"Nothing in the Dark"

"It's a Good Life"

There are several great TZone sites on the web, including The Twilight Zone Archives and My Life in the Shadow of The Twilight Zone, two of the most interesting.

Happy Twilight Zone Day, everybody!

Where's The Train to Willoughby? It is so satisfying how T-Zone holds up to the test of time. Even the music seems scary and relevant. Not like most TV background music from the 60's/70's and 80's that is dated and horribly annoying. Thanks for pointing out that it is Twilight Zone Day (who knew?).

Question: What's better than "Eye of the Beholder?"

Answer: Absolutely goddamn nothing.
