It is the middle ground between light and shadow …

The SyFy (formerly Sci-Fi) channel had it’s bi-annual Twilight Zone marathon over New Year’s Eve. I DVR’d a bunch of episodes, but we got to talking today at work about favorite episodes, and I started rattling them all off – by title – much to the amazement of some of my co-workers. Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite episodes of all-time.

    Funny that you bring this up. At dinner with friends last Tuesday, it came up that I had never seen a Twilight Zone episode. My friend’s husband Greg was outraged and we ended up inviting them over for New Year’s Eve and watched the first episode they showed – The Hitchhiker, which he and Mike described as a classic. Amazing in so many ways but the fact remains, I don’t like creepy stuff like that – even though it was relatively benign compard to some of the horror/thriller stuff out there today, it completely freaked me out.

    Didn’t we talk about this? I swear, we talked about the dark side of Roald Dahl while Mike was living @ 2922. Well, if you can’t handle the episodes @ least check out the Wikipedia synopsis!

    Nope – we definitely talked about Tales of the Unexpected (although I only read those – didn’t realize there was a series) but somehow I don’t think this came up…
