Twilight Zone Marathon

serlingrod.jpgI admit it, I spent New Year’s day on the couch all day watching the Twilight Zone on The Sci Fi Channel. It’s interesting, we noticed that this year episodes seemed to be grouped by theme so you’d get two or three in a row surrounding maniac children with mind-control powers or the end of the world. I also noticed that Rod Serling seems to have a few themes that he includes in a lot of his work, including The Planet of the Apes: man’s struggle alone against the universe, people out of place with their time or surroundings, the outsider, the end of the world, etc. Overall, it was great to watch about 15 of the episodes, spotting Burgess Meredith, Mary Hartley, Robert Duval, and Robert Redford (playing Mr. Death). Why can’t they make TV like that anymore?

I agree! They just do not make TV like that anymore and it’s a real shame! Kudos to you on pointing out the fact that the episodes seemed centered around themes this year – I noticed that too 🙂
