The Twilight Zone

This was a great tv series from the 60's created and hosted by a unique guy named Rod Serling. This show was innovative and very well written ( a lot of them were written by Rod Serling) and the stories always had a twist at the end. Kind of hard to watch them today because the pacing and unfolding of the stories is from another time (meaning very slow) and once you've seen them and know what's coming it kind of spoils the fun. All in Black & White, very little in the way of visual effects, lots of dialogue. A great show nonetheless! If you haven't seen it, you should!

Most had actors who later went on to big careers either in movies (Robert Redford as Mr. Death) and TV (Elizabeth Montgomery as a last remaining rebel in an interplanetary war.). I especially love the episode Time at Last where a bookworm finally finds what he has been waiting for only to lose …

About this tv show


A classic episode from the series's first season, The Hitch-Hikertakes a cue from the American urban legend, in which a motorist continually sees the same hitchiker over and over again for up to thousands of miles, finding out toward the trip's end that the hitchhiker really is death calling them to the afterlife.
