    Thumbs up twilight zone



    this thread is dedicated to the greatness that was the original twilight zone television series (1956-1964). you can still catch the classics on sci fi at like 1am. and who doesn't love mr. serling?! and of course, the simpsons parodies of this show are excellent.



    my favourite episode of all time is probably "the midnight sun" where the earth falls out of orbit. i also like:

    the odyssey of flight 33
    the hunt (mainly cause it reminds me of my dad)
    to serve man
    nightmare at 20,000 feet
    living doll
    little girl lost

    so, what are YOUR favourites?!

    I used to be scared of the one where the guy is in an airplane and he sees a monster on the wing. When he looks out the window and the monsters face is right up in his grill... That scared the shit out of me back in the day.

    There are so many to name.

    I approve of this thread.

    nothing in the dark was a good one, with a young robert redford to boot! they really did a good job of getting guest stars on this show. mickey rooney was in the episode about the jockey, that one was weird...

    some weren't as great as others, but the great ones really got to you. my mom says she saw the "little girl lost" episode when she was a kid and it freaked her the fuck out.

    that is the "terror at 20,000 feet episode". another great one. what's funny to watch now is how they are smoking on the plane, the flight attendents can give shatner sedatives and how plush the seats are. flying sure has changed!

    I found a torrent a year ago to the entire box set that includes every single fucking episode. It took a week to download but that shit is gold on my computer! Fucking great. I loved the intro cd which has rod sterling presenting and introducing the series to the networks executives who view it. Fucking brilliant!

    Holy shit, look at that. It still makes me uneasy.



    I also loved the one about the little boy who wished people into the corn field and made the rest of the world vanish.

    I love how the Episodes would just start with NO FUCKING INTRO, and you would be like "wha the fuck is goin on?"

    then 10 minutes into the episode THIS

    this is a quote from that episode-

    "You see. No shock. No engulfment. No tearing asunder. What you feared would come like an explosion is like a whisper. What you thought was the end is the beginning."


    such an awesome show!!!!

    Thumbs up ivysaur's top 50

    i do not acknowledge the "unitedwestand" duplicate thread...

    i submit for your approval a list of my top fifty episodes of the twilight zone. i generally do not care for the ones that revolve around war or going back to your childhood, so you won't see many of those on the list. in addition, i didn't really take into account anything other than preference. for example, i didn't include "i sing the body electric" just because it was written by ray bradbury.

    i also made a shorter top 10 list from that list of 50 for those that just want to dabble in the twilight zone. and i tracked whether they were on the first ten seasons of the simpsons what are your favorites?

    I hadn't realized the The Simpsons alluded to the Twilight Zone so much!
