I don't haunt theaters much anymore, but when something like this comes along I will without hesitation. The Twilight Zone is one of my five favorite TV series of all time.
The 6 episodes were WALKING DISTANCE, TIME ENOUGH AT LAST, THE INVADERS, TO SERVE MAN, EYE OF THE BEHOLDER and THE MONSTERS ARE DUE ON MAPLE STREET.
Anyone who is a fan of the show knows what these stories are about and they pretty much sum up everything series creator Rod Serling was passionate about in his short lifespan.
There was a small crowd in the theater when my roommate and I walked into the darkened room. I had already told her of my love for this show and that I sometimes get very sentimental during certain episodes including the first one entitled WALKING DISTANCE. I didn't fail her. I did, I think that episode has to be my all time favorite. It fits me like a glove.
As all of this classic goodness flickered across the screen I believe I was in heaven. My room mate actually jumped in her seat a couple of times during the episode entitled THE INVADERS in which Agnes Moorehead plays a woman fighting to miniature invaders from space. I have to admit I was happy to see that!!!
After the episodes ended they ran a documentary of Rod Serling , and as usual it was top notch. It was a great way to spend over 3 1/2 hours and I wish they would do more of that kind of thing where I live. The show had a profound effect on my life and I will carry it to the grave. Now my room mate has been quoting the Twilight Zone all week, and that is something I am proud of. The Twilight Zone "infection" has spread to another.
If you've never seen any episode of this great series I think you need to. It's simply not to be missed. Thanks to Fathom for letting us celebrate the 60th Anniversary of this high point of American Pop Culture.
