Twilight Zone

It has a lot in common with Fringe, and is an absolute classic. Even Darlton like it. I hope I'm not the only one who has watched it.

I love TZ. Rod Serling is brilliant.

There are so many good episodes. "Eye of the Beholder" is one. "Time Enough At Last" is another.

That one where the astronaut crashes on a planet and finds a lone girl, whilst his planet is being anhilated by nuclear war.

The one with the doll that killed the dad.

The one with the stripper who is in the hospital and is convinced she will die. (That nurse is horrifying.)

And, of course, the one where humans find a book aliens brought with them that's called "To Serve Man."

I really liked the alien-themed ones.

One episode I love is "Will the real Martian please stand up?". In this episode, seven people get stranded at a diner, but one of them is a Martian.

I also like "The Monsters are on Maple Street," in which paranoid neighbors accuse one another of being aliens.

My favorite is "Time Enough at Last," story of my life! Here in the states, Sci-Fi channel plays TZ marathon every New Year's Eve. My spouse can't believe that I watch EVERY year, but I always seem to catch a few eps that I've never seen before (amazing but true).

Yeah, I read that as a play in high school, and loved it. Never watched a TZ episode, although I'm sure I would love them :(

I caught a few this New Years and the one I hadn't seen was the episode of the woman in the hospital who had bandages around her head. We never see anyone elses face until the very end and then when her bandages are removed after a surgery to make her look "normal", she is a very beautiful woman but we see that the rest of the people there think she is still hideous. They all look like pig people or something! :lol: Great episode!!

Yeah, they showed that one in middle school as part of a sociology unit. It's called "The Eye of the Beholder."

I love the Twilight Zone! I watched a lot of them in school too. That classic feeling to it, but it is great and creative.
