    Chairman Meow started a really cool Twilight Zone thread called "Twilight Zone", but it didn't really catch on. It was visually appealing though. Anyway, is there going to be a Twilight Zone marathon on Sci-Fi for New Years? Don't they usually do this?

    I have the complete series on my hard drive. I really enjoyed the pilot. Watching how they used to sell shows to the networks back in the day was pretty cool. Rod Serling did an excellent job. I haven't watched in a long time but it's what 156 episodes or something? It's like 28 dvd's.

    One of my favorites was when they cut off all the power to a neighborhood except one house and how quickly the neighbors turned on each other thinking they were alians or evil or something. Human nature is a bitch was pretty much the moral of the story.

    I just checked the Sci Fi channel schedule, and they will be running TZ episodes all day NYE and NYday.

    A couple of my favorites of the original series include "Time Enough To Last" and "Living Doll". Check out the Wiki page for plot descriptions and episode guides.

    It's hard to think up a favorite one. I like the one where that guy doesn't allow his neighbors in his vault. And the one with the bus and the little coffee shop with the Martian and the Venus guy. And the one where the airplane keeps jumping around in time. And the one with the monster on the airplane wing. And the one where they have the devil locked in a cabinet. And the kid who wishes things into the corn field. And the guy who wants to read all the books. And the one where they find out that the book is actually a cookbook. And the one where books are obsolete. And the one with the little robots that are actually people, and its the old lady who is the alien. And the one where the man gives his family masks. And the one where the "ugly" woman is actually beautiful to us, but is in a parralel universe of ugly people, and so they send her to a colony.

    Twilight Zone is the best.

    Or the one with Peter Falk as a dictator who keeps seeing himself betrayed in the mirror.

    Or where Mickey Rooney plays a disrespected jockey who wants to be big.

    And the one where astronauts think they crashed on another planet and kill each other off until they realize they're just in a desert on Earth


    Ooooh! Or the one where the guy becomes addicted to the slot machine! Such a great series! We have all the DVDS, plus all the books with synopses and back stories for all the episodes
    Woah, I don't remember any of these. I'm going to keep an eye out for them on NYE and NY.

    Another good one is that guy who is in a simulation of the world where he is the only human being left, but he doesn't know it's a simulation.

    i don't think i have either, funny. i've seen most all of them and i can't recall that one.

    they show them at like 1am almost daily on sci fi. a few years ago i recorded and watched pretty much every one they have ever broadcasted in that slot.

    sometimes i'll put on one of my favourite episodes i keep on my dvr before bed, but it's been awhile since i've watched too. you almost have to forget about them to re-watch or the impact isn't the same.

    i used to love when a new guy would come to my house and i'd let him scroll through the dvr while i got drinks. i almost always came back to the guy saying "so, i guess you like the twilight zone, eh?"

    The simulation one is good. I think he sees a mannequin in a car and runs over to it thinking its a woman and he starts talking to it. I forget what else happens.

    I also like the one where the guy drives into that town where they have those machines to make whatever they want, and they don't allow him to leave with that invisible barrier, and he wants to steal their machines and ingredient sheets.

    Damn. I clearly need to watch more episodes. I don't recall many of those. I like the one where several people are trapped in a cylindrical room with no roof, and they find out they are....wait, I don't want to spoil it.

    the first half hour of the twilight zone movie is really hard to watch considering the story behind it.

    I also liked the one where the guy who hated black people got transported to the south during the KKK time, he was black and they lynched him. I believe they remade this one into the movie but I prefer the original black and white version.

    That was always one of my favorites too, even though in retrospect, the twist is kind of retarded. I still like it though.

    I have been trying to remember something I watched a long time ago. I do not remember if it was a Twilight Zone episode or not. It was about a guy who was so worried about the big bomb that he built a bomb shelter and hoarded food and such. They ended up having some sort of nuclear fall out while his wife and children were gone and it was just him and a friend in the shelter. They kept waiting for the levels to go down so they could go out and search for other survivors but it never did. The neighbor ended up leaving and getting killed by mutants while the one guy watched on a video feed. Come to find out the reason the levels never went down was because the rest of the world had built a huge dome over the fall out area. They show the rest of the world at peace and visiting the location as a memorial. They pan to the wife with her kids and saying how her husband was buried there, all the time she knew that he was in a bomb shelter unable to escape. Anyone else remember this?

    I don't know if that's from Twilight Zone, but it sounds cool.
