    Cool!

    There were some really good WWII themed episodes, too!

    There was one called Death's Head revisted, right? I saw that one on youtube and thought it was excellent.

    Heh. Yeah. Unfortunately, all my in-laws (except bro-n-law, he's cool) thought it was the worst thing they'd ever seen, kept asking questions all through it, wanted to know the guy's background and why he was doing ___.....so I turned it off after that. But I did get to see "The Hitchhiker"! That's my fav, and a classic! Also saw one I hadn't seen before, about a group of monks who seem to have captured the devil! Missed "All The Time In The World", another awesome one.

    Thanks for the link to the episodes guide GG. :)
    Several jewels on that list.

    "To Serve Man" was a great one, IMO.
    Not my favorite episode but it is in the Top 5.

    My favorite was "The Invaders" from Season 2. What is that up in the attic? :)

    :lol: Yep, that one played, too....I was busy with something, though and didn't get a chance (again) to watch it all the way through. Does anyone actually SPEAK in that episode, except for the distress-call at the end?

    I think my all-time fav is episode 73, season 3 where the kid "wishes people to the cornfield"...

    Even to this day, if something breaks or is FUBAR at the shop, we say it's "going to the cornfield" :lol:

    :lol: Yeah. That's the one that turned my wife off. She refused to watch anything after that one.

    I love the fact is was far more psycological then special effects.

    My favorite was "Time Enough to Last", where a nuclear bomb goes off leaving a guy by himself to read all the books he wants, then breaks his glasses at the very end, God that would blow!

    Yeah, that's the one. I thought it was "All the Time in the World". Guess that's just the last line he madly chuckles to himself. Its a classic!

    I liked the TWZ we had another this side of the pond called Tales of the unexpected which had the same format.

    After they discontinued The Twilight Zone, Rod Serling came out with a show called "The Night Gallery"...

    I remember watching them when I was a kid, and some of those episodes scared the crap out of me.

    Same here.
    Remember the one with the guy who had x-ray vision or something like it.
    When he went into the church at the end and ripped his eyes out I freaked.
    Try being 10 at 2 am and seeing something like that. :shock:
