That's The Signpost Up Ahead...

By Brian . Created on Apr 26, 2021
Your next stop, The Twilight Zone. Created back in 1959 by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone is an anthology style TV series where the characters in the episode typically face some sort of unusual events. The show itself has had three re-launches over the years, as well as a theatrical film. In any case, I'm assuming most people have seen at least one episode. Below are six of the most well known from the original show. Take your pick, or feel free to add your own in replies.

All great shows! I loved Arthur Hunnicutt. The twilight Zone featuring him and his dog!

Another one draws to a close. A word on The Monsters Are Due, which no one mentioned. This was written by Rod Serling himself. The premise is a typical suburb street at night. When the lights start going out in houses, the residents gather to figure out what is going on. Things escalate from there as they start to blame each other. Since this is The Twilight Zone, the truth is far more strange. I had a class in ...

Episode 36- "The Bewitchin' Pool" <br/>Two children escape their bickering parents through a portal in the bottom of their swimming pool to a magical land watched over by a kindly old woman the children call Aunt T.

An interesting twist on the Hansel and Gretel type tale where the woman the children encounter doesn't have bad intentions. One can read into this what they will, but life with Aunt T is far better than cold, bickering parents.

That's called 'The Hunt'. While chasing a racoon, Hunnicutt and his dog both dive into a pond, only to wake up the next morning to find no one can see them, and people are attending their funeral. When all is said and done, we learn even the Devil can't fool a dog.

The monster on the wing of the plane was so good! The one about the live doll was good but so creepy.

Although not on the list, another episode I always found a bit creepy was 'The Fever', about a guy who becomes addicted to a slot machine while in Vegas. The design of the machine looks like it is smiling at times, and calls out his name 'Franklin' in this weird voice that sounds like a pile of coins.

Brian, did you ever perhaps see the remake of "It's a good life" when one of the later Twilight Zone series was revived, with Bill Mumy's little daughter. Same concept, only the little girl seems somehow more vindictive, and evil. She looked EXACTLY like him(Mumy) at about the same age. The "mother" of that child was only a vessel, LOL! :-)

No, I have to say I wasn't even aware of it, just the remake that was in the The Twilight Zone film. Thanks, will have to track it down and see if I can watch it online.

Brian, perhaps the episode with the daughter of Bill Mumy was in the movie, I recall vaguely seeing it, again, by "osmosis". "Lefty" enjoys a lot of those genre's of tv shows, movies, and although most of use "old-timers" have seen the original Twilight Zone/Outer Limits shows in our youth, I "mostly" try to "ignore" the more modern remakes. ;-)
