  1. My favorite episode was probably when John Astin played a hippie-type who had died. He was placed with a bunch of old people who were content with their quiet surroundings. He began to lose his mind because no one wanted to party with him. It proved that one person's heaven is another person's hell. The scariest episode was the one in which a mother heard her child crying in the middle of the night. When she went to check on the child it was nowhere to be seen. But she could still hear it crying. The child had fallen through an opening in the wall to another dimension. It still scares me.

  2. Thanks I didn't know this. I need to start getting into my twilight zone. I suspect this has been celebrated for weeks on end at the White House.
    I do like an episode that you can find on youtube with a creature/gremlin on the wing of a plane. Great entertainment and safe for kids too.

    1. That was the William Shatner episode! (He was the airplane passenger, not the creature/gremlin, lol)

  3. I loved The Twilight Zone when I was a kid! My fave episode had Burgess Meredith as this nearsighted bookworm who ends up in eternity with all the books in the world and then his glasses break without any way to repair them ever again, poor bastard.

  4. Never gotten into the series but I'm well aware of it

  5. I loved the Twilight Zone!
    My favorite was the one where the little doll would say to the little girl, "I'm going to kill you!". Hey, I was a kid myself and I KNEW it was only make believe, but I still made darn sure my sister was around when the dolls were nearby! :-)

  6. Never watched that series, who knows I might one day.
