Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

I've had the whole series for quite some time, years, but today I starting picking episodes at random because there's not enough new stuff coming out fast enough to keep me satisfied.

Just Finished "A very Unusual camera" and I saw "You look like number 12" "The Time Piece" and "Obsolete" earlier in the day.

Burgess really got old quickly between Obsolete and Batman.

Pushed play on "the Invaders" moments ago, however my finger is hovering on the skip button...

Advise me if you could be so kind.

Just watch them all. Marathon it until you pass out and when you wake, repeat.

Like any series you will find ones you like and ones you hate and you will disagree with others over them. I myself always liked A Game of Pool, but dont know many others that do. The Howling Man is another favorite as is To Serve Man. Just dive in and watch them all.

Sage advice.

Sorry for assuming that the production is not god.

Watch the ones written by Richard Matheson.

(Okay, you can skip the hour-long ones from the fourth seasons.)

'Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,' with Bill Shatner one of my favorites. 'To Serve Man,' as someone else mentioned. Eye of the Beholder has the best ending IMO of any in the series except, 'To Serve Man.' And, '5 Characters in Search of an Exit,' which ST Voyager shamelessly ripped off.

Re: Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

I get a kick out of some of the episodes that were penned by Earl Hamner, Jr. You would never guess that "The Hunt", "Jess-Belle", and "The Bewitchin' Pool" were written by the fellow who created "The Waltons"!

I think "Time Enough at Last" (with Burgess Meredith) is one of my favorites.... And is also one that I hate!

And then- Submitted for your approval-
there are the four openings from "The Scary Door" from 'Futurama'!:

Re: Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

I was trying to remember which cartoon ruined the punchline for to serve man.

(Silly me thought it was Pinky and the Brain.)

Thankyou.

Re: Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

For non-Matheson episodes, you can't go wrong with "Nothing in the Dark," "The Howling Man," and, of course, "It's a Good Life . . . "

Nothing comes to... Workforce?

Sounds a lot like Tabula Rasa from Buffy Season 6.

Re: Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

You've already seen "Number 12 Looks Just Like You," which is one of the best. There's also "Eye Of The Beholder" and "Third From The Sun." And "Time Enough At Last." And "In Praise Of Pip." I'll think of more when I'm more awake.

Re: Original Twighlight Zone Suggestions.

I fell asleep last night watching Third from the Sun.

I must have been a zombie while queueing it up, because I have no recollection what the frakk it was about.
