The Twilight Zone: The Lonely

Rod Serling must have been a genius or a tortured soul, I can’t tell.  He writes some truly heartfelt stories and the amazing thing is, in just over 20 minutes, he gets us invested in the characters and their plights.  … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Escape Clause

It’s an interesting thing that my memory of The Twilight Zone was about a series of stories where bad things befall people.  I mean, if I’m being fair to myself, it was years upon years since my cousin and I … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Walking Distance

You know when you’re really hungry and you’re eating everything in sight, and you accidentally eat a grenade, and as it’s going down, the pin snags on a tooth and comes out so that the grenade is now live, and … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine

The Twilight Zone is proving to be a more interesting place than I expected.  I have seen a good deal of the episodes in the past, but this is the first time I’m tackling them in order and all the … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Mr. Denton on Doomsday

For me, a good western is as rare as a good dental visit.  It’s not impossible, but it’s a pretty uncommon experience.  (Tombstone, for instance, is a good visit to the dentist; it’s a damned enjoyable western!)  Unfortunately, my expectations … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: One for the Angels

It amazed me to see One for the Angels because, for the life of me, I don’t think I’d ever seen it before.  Besides it being new to my memory, it also was a loud and clear statement of what … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Where is Everybody?

The Twilight Zone was a groundbreaking television show that premiered in the late 50s.  While the show has been rebooted repeatedly, the series impact was in its newness and that is a feature that can never be reclaimed.  Once an … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: You Might Also Like

When I watched Try, Try, I was disappointed and made the comment that out of 20 episodes, there were only 4 really great ones.  I neglected Blurryman when I said that, which would have brought us up to 5.  With … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Try, Try

Well, I can’t say I’m disappointed that the series is coming to an end.  We had a number of great episodes in a row, but for the penultimate one, Try Try, we’re back to heavy handed messages about the hostility … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: A Small Town

I had mentioned during Downtime, that it felt like the programmers of the game that we call life had a reason for preventing me from watching season 2 of The Twilight Zone until after Eric Molinsky released his Imaginary Worlds … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: A Human Face

Of all the episodes of Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone, this is the one that had some of the most interesting discussion between me and my group of “penpals”.  We’re a handful of friends that watch shows “together”, which is to … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: 8

I’m embarrassed to say it took me until writing up this review to realize why the episode was titled 8.   In fairness, it’s a testament to the writing, acting, and directing that the title just faded into the background.  This … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Among The Untrodden

So far, this season has impressed me more than season one, but none of the episode really wow’d me… until now.  I finally feel we have  a strong episode that can hold up as an example of what The Twilight … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Ovation

Last week I mentioned just what a bleak place the Twilight Zone could be.  While I stand behind that, it’s not really the Zone itself that’s bleak, but the people who we find entering it.  The problem is often one … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: The Who of You

Sometimes The Twilight Zone feels like a very unpleasant place, doesn’t it?  I mean, it’s bleak.  We meet a guy who is just awkward to watch.  He comes home to a miserable girlfriend who is unsympathetic.  Not that he deserves … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Downtime

I feel like I entered the Twilight Zone myself when I started to watch this episode.  I mean, it was weird enough when I learned many months late that the second season of Jordan Peele’s Twilight Zone had come out … Continue reading

The Twilight Zone: Meet in the Middle

Season one of Jordan Peele’s rebooted Twilight Zone was a bit of a heavy slog for me.  Well, at least for most of the episodes.  It wasn’t that the writing wasn’t good, but I felt like someone was trying to … Continue reading
