Name That Twilight Zone Episode!
The Twilight Zone remains one of the best television shows of all time. The anthology series, which first aired way back on October 2, 1959, has become a landmark in genre television, using elements of science-fiction, horror, and fantasy in stories that act as moralistic fables, often topped up with unforgettable twist endings.
Created by Rod Serling, who also served as the series’ on-screen narrator, The Twilight Zone aired for five seasons, culminating in 156 episodes (94 of which were written by Serling himself), and featuring a top roster of talent, including performances by William Shatner, Jack Klugman, Burgess Meredith, Ida Lupino, Anne Francis, and Martin Landau.
Serling, frustrated by network censorship, used the show’s genre trappings to explore the dangers of prejudice and fascism as well as matters of the heart, creating episodes that captured the imaginations of millions of fans the world over.
So let’s see if you can name the title of these 25 episodes, many of which still feel timely and resonant today. It’s time to enter, in the words of Serling’s opening narration “a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition…That’s the signpost up ahead – your next stop, the Twilight Zone!”
