Might as well face it, I'm addicted to lists. I KNOW. But you know what? It's the 4th of July...and the SyFy Network, in a rare brilliant move, has been doing a Twilight Zone marathon all day. THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT WE FOUGHT FOR INDEPENDENCE TO GAIN!!!!
(By the way, all of these episodes are on Netflix Instant Watch, and I've been told most of the series' eps are available on YouTube. Happy hunting!)
Number 10 - Dust (January 6, 1961; Season 2, Episode 12)
the first episode I covered. It's never been recognized as one of the classics of the series, but I've always found it to be an interesting take on how we cope with death. Were it not for a dose of fate late in the episode, this story of a Old West town on the day of a hanging wouldn't even make the TZ...but that's the beauty of some of Serling's best stories.
Number 9 - Time Enough At Last (November 20, 1959; Season 1, Episode 8)
Number 8 - Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up? (May 26, 1961; Season 2, Episode 28
Number 7 - Eye of the Beholder (November 11, 1960; Season 2, Episode 6)
Number 6 - Mirror Image (February 26, 1960; Season 1, Episode 21)
Number 5 - The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street (March 4, 1960; Season 1, Episode 22)
Anyway, The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street kinda covers a similar situation - but ponders what might happen if there's no one who will stand up and shout something sensible. Perhaps the series' most thought provoking tale.
Number 4 - Spur of the Moment (February 21, 1964; Season 5, Episode 21)
Number 3 - To Serve Man (March 2, 1962; Season 3, Episode 24)
Number 2 - Nothing in the Dark (January 5, 1962; Season 3, Episode 16)
Number 1 - The Howling Man (November 4, 1960; Season 2, Episode 5)
written about this one once, but it bears repeating that this is one of my favorite horror stories ever.
