Next Stop, Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone

For some reason the old television fantasy series The Twilight Zone has been getting some attention online recently.

I'm seeing polls such as: "What is your favourite episode?" (Mine: "Walking Distance")

Produced and broadcast between 1959 and 1965, the anthology series was a moderate ratings success in its first run. When TZ hit syndication more people discovered what would later be evaluated as one of television's greatest and most memorable drama programs.

"What episode can you watch over and over again?" (Me: "Five Characters in Search of An Exit")

If you’re not familiar with the original version of The Zone, it’s well worth checking out.

Start with: “The Invaders” and “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”

Should I dare ask what you think of the new reboot? :D

Dare me. Don't ask.

Okay: The one I watched was bad; poorly written. I will not "Replay" that one.
