Great episode. I've maybe seen it one too many times though. The Simpsons has a fun pardoy of it in the Treehouse of Horrors II.

I have so many favorites from the original run of TWZ. It's hard to choose only one, so I'm sure I'll come back to this post and list others. But for now, I'll start with season one and choose "Mr. Bevis." It's a goofy episode compared to many of the others, but I love the message.

There are so many classic episodes though! I love them all. Well, all except "The Bewitchin' Pool." That episode can go straight to Hell. :-p

It's got a nice "It's a Wonderful Life" feel to it. The Mr. Bevis episode, I mean.

Yeah, it does. Probably why I dig it. Another one with that feel to it (actually really heartwarming for a TZ episode) is "The Night of the Meek," with Art Carney. Wonderful Christmas episode. To a lesser degree (or maybe not) "One for the Angels" as well.

One that really freaked me out was the one where the Nazi soldier revisited the concentration camp and the ghosts of his victims put him on trail for crimes against humanity.

It's very strange the way my favor for Twilight Zone episodes have changed over the years.



Anne Francis starred in a TZ episode called, "After Hours". In the best Rod Serling tradition, there's nothing awful that happens in this story. It's actually a character study about who we are - a story about Us.



Yet, only the Twilight Zone can focus on beautiful people and give you a creepy, sort of "unsetteled" feeling.

I've been doing a lot of TZ bingeing lately, but I haven't got to that one yet. Looks very creepy, nonetheless.



I watched the Death episode yesterday. When someone thinks of Death, the first thing that comes in their mind is the Grim Reaper. But here, he looks like an FBI agent.

I always liked "Long Distance Call." Simply because my father had a funny prank pulled on him involving that episode. A spooky concept that ultimately had a happy ending.

Oh yeah, that's "One for the Angels," great episode. Ha, and so true. The FBI grim reaper.

I bet someone played that prank on him on Halloween.  It seems like a good time to play a prank like that.

Definitenly caught me by surprise. That's what a great TZ episode does.
