    It's either that or my tinfoil hat isn't working correctly and their mind control waves are working.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of "The Bewitchin' Pool" either. A friend of mine picked that one. I'm hoping to do another one soon, and maybe include one from Season 4.

    Last night i watched two amazing episodes of twilight zone. The first episode was called I Am the Night—Color Me Black, which was about hatred in the world. In had George Lindsay and Ivan Dixon in the episode. The second episode i watched was called The Jeopardy room, which had Martin Landau (Space 1999 and Mission Impossible) as a spy trying to escape his past. The episode had an amazing ending!!! I know i have said this before about Twilight Zone, but it is still great after 50 years!!

    [​IMG] This set is near the top of my collection.

    There are so many classic episodes. Some of my top ones are

    "Third Planet from the Sun". Edward Andrews was perfect as that gvmt "snoop" and Fritz Weaver is at the top of my tv character actors.

    "On Thursday We Leave for Home". James Whitmore, fantastic role.

    "A Nice Place to Visit". Who can forget Sebastion Cabot's "devlish" laugh at the end of that episode? :lol:

    "People Are Alike All Over". Roddy McDowall as the paranoid timid astronaut, and that sad look from Susan Oliver was outstanding.

    "The Monstors Are Due on Maple Street". Talk about an accurate character study.... from the aliens.... "It's the same everywhere....and we'll go from town to town...."

    "The After Hours". Anne Francis as the mannequin....wow. Remember the other mannequins calling out... "Marsha.....Marsha...."

    "Time Enough At Last". Probably one of the best-known episodes of the series....Brugess Meredith at the end....irony at its finest.

    "The Odyssey of Flight 33". The "time warp" theme, always worked for me back then :D

    "The Howling Man". John Carradine as "Brother Jerome".... amazing.

    "To Serve Man". What an ending :lol: One of my favorites from memories years ago.

    "The Little People". Another great Serling message at the end.

    "A Hundred Yards Over the Rim". Cliff Robertson in that hat going over the rise.... perfect.

    "The Rip Van Winkle Caper". More irony in the ending.

    Scripts were just outstanding in this series.

    It's also got (imo) one of the best intros from Rod Serling, the S1 intro:

    "There is a fifth dimension, beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition. And it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call...The Twilight Zone."

    I'm so glad that I saw this show when I was young because I never knew what to expect. I'm guessing that some of the endings are little more obvious to adult viewers today (thanks, in large part to the TZ, people are more on the lookout for twist endings) but I can only imagine that a lot of the episodes were mind blowing when they first aired. That's certainly not to take away from the series because even if you know the ending, it's still a wonderful ride.

    All that being said, I remember years ago seeing Time Enough At Last with my sister and I figured she'd guess the ending but she was shocked when Bemis drops his glasses. She was literally dumbfounded by it.

    even back then, i recall my dad and i had a game of who would be right.

    we each tried to guess how the show was gonna end, cuz they were very good at fooling the viewers.

    to serve man, though, i think took everyone by surprise.

    i think we all figured that the aliens may be up to something. after all, even the humans in the show were fearful at first.

    but i dont think anyone had come up with it being a cookbook. it is probably the one episode that it think of, first.

    like a lot of shows, i havent seen them since their original airing.
