10 of the Best Twilight Zone Episodes

This week marks the 54th anniversary of Rod Serling’s seminal science fiction television series that transported viewers into unknown dimensions — of sight, sound and of mind. One of the best TV shows to come out of the 1960s without having lost any of its appeal. Here are 10 of some of the best Twilight Zone episodes. Which are your favorites?

Nightmare at 20,000 Feet  — William “Captain Kirk” Shatner stars in what might be the most famous and revered of all Twilight Zone episodes.

To Serve Man — In this episode, mankind has seemingly found a benevolent alien savior in the form of the Kanamits — a race of towering space travelers who are all too willing to help Earth eradicate the problems of hunger and war.

The Eye of the Beholder A young woman undergoes surgery to improve her appearance and look like everyone else. It all becomes clear when the doctors and nurses faces are revealed.

Time Enough at Last — After getting his wish to be rid of people, he is stuck in a world with all the time and books he could ever want and no way to enjoy them.

It’s a Good Life — A boy with incredible psychic powers who holds everyone around him hostage. And if they displease him, he simply thinks them out of existence.

The Invaders — A woman takes on tiny alien beings who accost her at her isolated farmhouse with an incredible twist at the end.

The Monsters are Due on Maple Street — This episode is another tale that asks the viewers to decide who the real monsters are: the alien invaders or their very own friends and neighbors? The invaders conclude that the best way to destroy mankind is to let us destroy ourselves.

Living Doll — A man isn’t a fan of his stepdaughter’s new “Talky Tina” doll, especially after she starts telling him she’s going to kill him.

Walking Distance — A man revisits his childhood (literally). It’s not the typical Twilight Zone story, but it stands as one of the best tales in the series and one of Serling’s finest moments.

10 Five Characters in Search of an Exit — An army major wakes up in a metal cylinder and meets a hobo, a ballet dancer, a bagpiper, and a clown. This episode features one of the best surprise endings of the series.

Happy Anniversary!

…oh, and Happy Halloween, too!

“It’s Okay To Be The Uncool Black Girl”

“I find it amazing how much you appreciate being a nerd once you get older.  Adding two cups of wisdom along with a pint of experience and mix it all together with maturity gives you a bewitching concoction of someone who is secure in who and what they are.  My security and confidence may not be at 100%, but its steadily growing year by year.  I’ve finally come to terms with the fact that I am an…
