Your one favorite Twilight zone episode.

Posted on Feb 1, 2013 2:50:14 PM PST
If you're going to ask a question, you should provide your own answer.

I have several favorites. There are so many great episodes, it is difficult coming up with just one favorite.

Besides that, you are in the "Music" forum.

Shadow Play (Dennis Weaver, Harry Townes) 1961

Rory Gallagher and Joy Division both wrote songs
with the same title-

So many great ones, it's difficult to select just one. I like Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up, Eye Of The Beholder, Jess-Bell, To Serve Man, Living Doll, The Dummy and The Masks are some of my faves.

Two of my favorites...both starred Burgess Meredith.
Time Enough at Last
Printer's Devil

"Night of the Meek" the Christmas episode starring Art Carney. The drunken Santa's department store speech on the meaning of Christmas is epic.
"Kick the Can" a group of aging nursing home residents regain their youth through the power of belief, and a child's game.
"In Praise of Pip" Jack Klugman. A father's love for his dying son is played out in an strangely empty amusement park.

my all-time favorite ..."A Stop at Willoughby" A henpecked, boss-beaten man jumps from a train, thinking he's escaping to a bucolic, peaceful town called Willoughby.

I also like the episode where the little girl and her dog fall into a space hole near her bed and the hole is closing. I think everybody plays their role in pajamas.

By the way, I am "Serving Man" for dinner tonight. You are all invited over.

William Shatner in "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet". This one severely creeped me out as a 7 yr old.I still continue to watch this one as much as possible.An eery classic as are most of Rod's creations.

Another great one: "The Changing of the Guard"
A retiring college professor, feeling like he's achieved nothing and bent on killing himself, listens to the ghosts of former students, who one-by-one thank him for the lessons he's instilled in them.

The one with Burgess Meredith

My favorite TV show of alltime. Too many favorites but, I'll say Deathshead Revisited. SS Captain Lutzer comes back to Dachau to relive his glory only to get his just reward instead.

Great question. One of my favorite shows ever. On new years eve they did a marathon of The Twiilight Zone. Lots of great stuff.

Rod Sterlings perspective was always reflected in the episodes. That questioning angry man thing.

I love the episode with the neighborhood turning on each other. Blaming each neighbor for their differentness in each weird happening. Then at the end it's an experiment by aliens to turn people against each other piece by piece, really, very profound.

The Billy Mummy episode is just so spintinglingly creepy. Hard to watch.

I love the episode where Burgis Merideth, who is in more than one i think, ends up with a library of books to read and his glasses break , then the episode ends, just the classic, you get what you dreamed and..... total twighlight philososphy.

Such a great show...

I know some do not want this topic discussed on a music forum but like seeing The Beatles for the first time this classic TV show is so much a part of the culture we grew up with that I thought it would make interesting conversation. Was there ever a better TV show? For those of you too young to remember it do your self a favor and watch one of the marathons. Joe D

Stephen Mcnary, I forgot to mention that one. It was one of the few I had never saw before until I got the complete DVD set (highly recommeneded, great extra's, looks real clean) But what a great episode! Blows me away.

Monsters On Maple Street. My all-time favorite episode.

The Burgess Meredith/library one you mentioned is probably #2 on my list.

It's not that ridiculous to discuss the Twilight Zone in the music forum. The scores often set the tone and provided an aura for various episodes that would have been missing otherwise.

Probably the finest example of this tendency would be in 'Walking Distance.' The music suits that episode to perfection.

G Garner "Walking Distance" is in my top 5. Good choice. Joe D

I am in my mid 40's now, and can really relate to the theme of that episode. It's a shame how many of the best things in life occur at an age when we are too immature to fully appreciate them.

"Talky Tina"......Telly Savalas as that bastard stepfather to this litte girl that has a talking doll that Savalas tries to destroy. But it is a Chucky type doll. Telly Savalas' acting is so good that you want to kill his cruel ass.

Posted on Feb 2, 2013 1:19:05 PM PST
Ed S. that is a great one. Telly is really good in that one.
