Can't believe a thread doesn't exist for this show.
Happy to have woken up on a day off to see a mini-marathon being played. Coffee and Bill Mumy slangin folks into the cornfield. I'll be on the couch for awhile, that's for true.

I love the marathon around New Years. Each year I watch an unhealthy amount.

I was just thinking of that episode this morning.

It's nowhere near one of my favorites, and Bill Mumy is annoying in it, but it's the Twilight Zone so it gets a pass.

Favorite episode? I think mine is “Nick of Time”.

Interesting choice. I do like Nick of Time, but it's not in my top tier of eps. Man, picking one is very difficult. Lately it's been "A Piano In The House." But I think ultimately it's "3rd From The Sun" or "The Masks."

So many good episodes. Time Enough at Last, The Monsters are Due on Maple St., Just What You Need...

Currently watching "I Shot An Arrow Into The Air" while I house some coffee...

“Now you make your tracks Mr. Corey. You move out and up like some kind of ghostly billy club tapping at your ankles and telling you that it was later than you think. You scramble up rock hills and feel hot sand underneath your feet and every now and then, take a look over your shoulder at a giant sun suspended in a dead and motionless sky…like an unblinking eye that probes at the back of your head in a prolonged accusation. Make tracks, Mr. Corey. Push up and push out. Because if you stop…if you stop, maybe sanity will get you by the throat. Maybe realization will pry open your mind and the horror you left down in the sand will seep in. Yeah, Mr. Corey, yeah, you better keep moving. That’s the order of the moment. Keep moving.”

Saturday morning to myself so I put on "People Are Alike All Over" and made a pot of French Press.

Now it's time for Long Live Walter Jameson.

You're looking at Act One, Scene One, of a nightmare, one not restricted to witching hours of dark, rainswept nights. Professor Walter Jameson, popular beyond words, who talks of the past as if it were the present, who conjures up the dead as if they were alive...In the view of this man, Professor Samuel Kittridge, Walter Jameson has access to knowledge that couldn't come out of a volume of history, but rather from a book on black magic, which is to say that this nightmare begins at noon.

The Twilight Zone is the best T.V. has ever been.

Some many plot devices employed that are now horror/sci-fi tropes.

Seasons 1 to 3 and 5 are available free to Prime members.

Completely agree. TTZ is my favorite show ever...By far. Part of that is because it's probably also tied to nostalgia.

The best sci-fi and horror relies on the imagination more than actually showing, which is what this show did so well.

Nick of time was when Shatner and his wife wind up in a small town because their vehicle crapped out on them, and he (Shatner) winds up getting addicted to the ambiguous answers that the fortune teller machine is giving him in the diner
