Now sure if this was on where you live but here in Houston there was a Twilight Zone marathon on the other day.
When I was a kiddo, Twilight Zone was a big deal. At our house we watched it every week, along with Gunsmoke, Bonanza and the Ed Sullivan Show.
Doug had a deprived childhood. He was never allowed to watch TZ and was only allowed to have 1 juice glass of Coke each week, and that’s if he’d been good; that explains a lot about the way he was raised and why he is the way he is now come to think of it.
Back to the subject at hand.
There were a lot of good Twilight Zones; but a few really stuck with me. Probably the one that did the most was:
By doing a Wiki search I just found out the name of the episode. It was “The Eye of the Beholder.” Well whatever the name of it was those pig face people scared the Beejeezus outta me; but then I was only about 9 at the time.
Another one that did a trip on me was “The After Hours”.
Those mannequins coming to life really freaked me out. It took me awhile before I could walk through Foley’s (now Macy’s) without looking over my shoulder.
Then of course there was also “To Serve Man”; the aliens came down and the poor, stupid earthlings assumed we were being whisked off to a better place where we’d be pampered by a society of people who want to please us. Instead we were the guests at an all you could eat buffet; and we were the buffet.
To Serve Man was a cookbook.
Those were my favs. What were yours?
