[TV Series] The Twilight Zone

Twilight Zone

The show might have appeared as ingenious sixty years ago, but from the lens of a modern viewer it is but a compilation of already tired ideas that are conveyed with naivete and superficiality more reminiscent of a cartoon.

If you’re curious, I would recommend only checking the episodes that make it to “best of twilight zone” lists.

Positive: Negative:
Some of the better episodes might explore fairly interesting ideas Acting can be quite cringeworthy depending on the episode
Some of the episodes are good at building expectation for that upcoming twist Lots of weak episodes
Most of the ideas are given very superficial treatment

  1. What episodes did you like the most? ‘Walking Distance’ is probably my favourite. Although, it’s not very typical for Twilight Zone and is a bit dated, with all the time-travel stories these days.

    1. I liked the Hitchhiker, Time Enough at Last, Nightmare at 20,000 Feet, To Serve Man, and Nick of Time.

      I don’t think I’ve seen Walking Distance actually, since I started with episodes best rated on imdb and worked down until I got tired of it. Maybe I’ll check it out.
