  1. When my baby came home from the 6th grade, fifteen years ago. She asked me if I had every heard of a TV show called The Twilight Zone. It was a rare rainy day here in California and her teacher showed, The Monsters are due on Mable Street. during play time.

  2. A good list, but I’d put Five Characters In Search Of An Exit much higher, and replace The Hitchhiker with The Invaders. Agnes Moorehead was brilliant in that one.

  3. I know it’s not part of Twilight Zone’s reputation, but I enjoy some of the sentimental episodes like The Changing of the Guard and I Sing the Body Electric. If it were filmed better, you could add The Night of the Meek. It works better as a short story.

    The Brain Center at Whipple’s is still topical and it has an appearance by Robby the Robot.

  4. Mm-Rod S was and still is one of my TV SF heroes. For me, amongst those B+W TZ eps listed, Eye Of TB and Time Enough AL jointly head up my list with The Inv coming up 3rd.

  5. Pretty good list, but I’d add “The Invaders” too. Moorehead did an amazing job with a solo wordless script.
