THE TWILIGHT ZONE (CBS 1958-64)
“You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension: a dimension of sound, a dimension of sight, a dimension of mind. You’re moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You’ve just crossed over into… the Twilight Zone.”
The Twilight Zone was the brainchild of Emmy Award-winner Rod Serling, who served as host and wrote more than 80 episodes of the original show's 156 episode run.
With its inimitable brand of disturbing fantasy and nightmarish science fiction, the series put its characters into situations that allow the human psyche to be probed in ways conventional dramas could not. Encapsulated in Serling's narration, the parables and plot twists of 'The Twilight Zone' touch on everything from Cold War anxieties to "what if" flights of fancy. It's a strange mix of horror, science-fiction, drama, comedy and superstition.
Serling introduced each episode, and many of the black and white episodes concluded with a surprise ending. Actors such as Burt Reynolds, Roddy McDowell, Carol Burnett, Elizabeth Montgomery, William Shatner, Billy Mumy and Robert Redford made appearances in some of the more well-known stories.
