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!!
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?
"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
"The Howling Man". John Carradine as "Brother Jerome".... amazing.
"To Serve Man". What an ending 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."
