1959 - 1963

The show that started it all!

The episodes listed below are not my all-time favorites. Some of them are, but I just kind of blog up whichever episode I feel like watching. It's conceivable - though unlikely - I'll get to all of them in this manner sooner or later.

Twilight Zone: The Movie (1983)

1985 - 1989

I love the original Twilight Zone, but it was actually this 80s incarnation with which I was first familiar. But I hadn't revisited it in many years. I was curious to see how it held up. 

Short answer: pretty well. Here are my 25 favorites.

2002-2003

This incarnation of the TZ never found its groove on prime time or in syndication. Which is too bad, as there were more than a few episodes worthy of the franchise. It's the lesser of the two revivals but still worth checking out.
Here are my 12 favorites

  1. You have quite a blog here! I just recently discovered it and I look forward to combing through the massive amount of information I see here. Your site is really diverse and I am a huge fan of almost every topic you've covered here. Thanks for the support and for all the kind words about the Vortex. We definitely appreciate it. Any upcoming topics or TV shows you plan to conquer?

    1. Thanks, Brian. And thank you for the Vortex - it's indispensable.

      I hope you enjoy poking around this site. I think I'm going to cover some Captain America comics next, as far as projects go, and try and mop up a few of the other unfinished ones.

      And probably (always) more Twilight Zone and Star Trek. Naturally!

  2. Tonight's episode: "Long Live Walter Jameson," which is another one of those bum-you-out episodes you mentioned recently. I'm going to pretend it's a sideways prequel to "Requiem for Methuselah," which shares with it the conviction that immortality is a big old sack of crap.

    I'm not entirely convinced. If given the chance, I'd happily find out.

    Either way, good episode. Kevin McCarthy being on hand certainly didn't hurt any.

  3. Tonight, I watched "The Big Tall Wish." I thought this was a pretty excellent episode. Didn't see the twist(s) coming, which is just how I like it.

    In excellent related news: my Mom got me the entire original series on Blu-ray for Christmas. That's a hella-fine Christmas present!

    1. My compliments to Mama Burnette - that's one helluva gift, indeed.

      I like the story of "Big Tall Wish" but the acting from the kid is a little distracting. It's unfair to critique kid actors, sure, and he's not quite Courtland Mead from the Garris/Weber "Shining" level of distracting. But ugh. First thing I think of when I think of that episode is some of the lines that kid delivers.

    2. The kid is genuinely awful, no doubt about it. But there wasn't exactly a large pool of competent actors in his demographic pool and age range in those days, I guess, so I'll make a few allowances for him.
