The Twilight Zone - Are We There Yet?

I always like the Twilight Zone.

50 years later, 'Twilight Zone' bridges time

By WILLIAM KATES (AP) – 1 day ago

"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call 'The Twilight Zone.'" — Rod Serling

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — On a Friday night in October 1959, Americans began slipping into a dimension of imagination as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. They've really never returned.

"The Twilight Zone," first submitted for the public's approval by a reluctant CBS, has resonated with viewers from generation to generation with memorable stories carrying universal messages about society's ills and the human condition.

Like the time-space warps that anchored so many of the show's plots, Rod Serling's veiled commentary remains as soul-baring today as it did a half-century ago, and the show's popularity endures in multiple facets of American pop culture.

The complete list of episodes here

My favorite is "To Serve Man."

What is yours?

After so many years, it still gives me the creep. The music is a classic. Wonder whether it's available as a ringtone?

Hi Dr Alex,
many thanks for the posting on Twilight Zone. I am one of its crazy fans and wonder if it is at all possible to get a copy of all its episodes.
