Sci-Fi’s showing 48 episodes of Twilight Zone. 48 or so.
That’s forty eight half hours of THE best anthology sci-fi/horror show in the history of TV. That’s forty eight half hours that have influenced virtually every piece of fiction since they first aired. The show that pioneered the twist ending. The show that pioneered Sci-Fi in our every day lives. The show that made just about every sci-fi show that came after it possible.
Buffy? Steals from the Twilight Zone. X-Files? Steals from the Twilight Zone. Star Trek? Steals from the Twilight Zone. Tales from the Crypt? Masters of Horror? You guessed it.
This is THE definitive show for Sci-Fi/Horror/Fantasy fans. It’s a blueprint for how to tell these stories properly, concisely, and engagingly.
The best part? They aged REALLY well.
So, go, watch it. If you haven’t watched it before, you’re in for a treat. If you haven’t watched it in a while, go, watch it, relive your past. If you’re a junkie like me… then post your favorite episodes.
