    "Witness Mr. Henry Bemis a charter member in the fraternity of dreamers. A bookish little man whose passion is the printed page, but who is conspired against by a bank president and a wife and a world full of tongue-cluckers and the unrelenting hands of the clock. But in just a moment Mr. Bemis will enter a world without bank presidents or wives or clocks or anything else. He’ll have a world to himself without anyone."

    YESSSSS.

    now that i made that post i can start freaking out about how much i love this kind of show

    i'm pretty sure watching the outer limits as a kid made me love short horror fiction and SF - a lot of the stuff I was writing a few years ago mimicked Twilight Zone structures fairly well

    another thing that is similar to twilight zone's turnabout structure is the scp foundation (i had to link to the stuff i wrote, because i'm an attention whore.)

    also many of stephen king's best short fiction pieces are similar to TZ. i'm thinking particularly of the finger and 1408.

    horror is amazing

    Why would you say that!?!?!?!

    Edit: Disregard that, I would've said that too.

    Oh yeah, this show was one the best written TV shows of all time and it was wayyy ahead of its time.

    Another Serling show that isn't as well known but started out strong was Night Gallery. Unfortunately Serling chose to turn down control of the show and later found many of his script submissions butchered or outright ignored so it understandably lost viewers.

    For all the episodes I've seen of Twilight Zone, I've never seen a single episode of Night Gallery

    I guess people don't remember it as fondly

    I am pretty sure that Hulu has most if not all of Night Gallery's episodes.

    They seem to have The Outer Limits as well.

    "To Serve Man" freaked me out so much. Didn't help that I was watching it alone in a darkened room at 1:30 AM.

    I remember having seen that episode before it was spoiled for me. The reveal is so well done.

    Little Girl Lost is one of my favs for obvious reasons

    well, obvious if you know both me and the episode so not really obvious

    I really like the one about the neighborhood whose power goes out, except for one house

    And then everyone thinks that one dude is a commie spy when he doesn't know why his power stayed on

    And then the power goes out again, but another dude's lights stay on and everyone flips out

    That's one of the most perfect encapsulations of cold war paranoia I've ever seen!

    There was another one that was very similar
    Two neighbors are having a party when the radio says that the USSR have launched missiles
    One neighbor has a bomb shelter and he hustles his family in there but the other family is left outside
    And the two husbands who start as best friends arguing more and more heatedly
    One trying to get in and the other trying to keep him out

    I just watched an episode about a lieutenant in world war two who could tell by looking at his platoon's faces who was going to die in action that day

    Holy god what a good episode

    As a concept it's extremely compelling and presents a bunch of really interesting questions, a lot of which are addressed within the episode itself!

    It is still so hard for me to believe that a show this smart existed back in the day
    Olivaw you are my favorite did you know that now you know that!

    You know To Serve Man?

    Read it as a short story first. Scared the tar out of me.

    Then I saw the actual episode, and so help me, the one thing I could think was "These people are CHUMPS who deserve everything they have coming"

    I mean, it's the cold war. You're supposed to be paranoid. Ever heard "Beware of Greeks baring gifts"?

    I love The Twilight Zone so, so much.

    A long time ago I was reading a Twilight Zone book on a long road trip

    After finishing one of the longer stories (Something about a ghost train maybe?) I was jostled awake, only to discover that I had imagined the entire last half of the story in my dream, and the real thing read completely differently.

    That is some meta Twilight Zone business right there

    Agreed on 24 hours. Brutal stuff.

    It's a cruel god with all the caprice and nastiness that implies. Also right on the hard to find.

    Chesterton sometimes starts a horror mood, and the man is good at it. Then, all of the sudden?

    BAM. Punchline. Whole thing defused.

    I rather liked Mr. B. Gone for it's conceit that the book is possessed and talking at you, but he could have gone a lot more interesting with fonts and formatting and such and it really doesn't end so much as it screeches to a halt

    Watching Night Gallery on Hulu and its actually pretty good! Almost every half-decent looking woman shown is creepy as hell though, even when they're nice there's this Weird Barbie look they've got going

    Favorite so far is A Room With A View (predictable but fun) least favorite is Clean Kills and Other Trophies (predictable and dumb and stop being such a pussy, kid, jeez)
