  • A very interesting moment in the Twilight Zone

    This was an extremely interesting episode. Y'see, it is about a very skilled writer who always disliked machines, and is having trouble with his secretary(Or was it his wife? My apologizes, It's been awhile). So, it ends up with her just walking out the door, and that's the end of it. But then, a curious thing happens- His typewriter is continuously telling him to "Get out". Later, after another set of machine-related events, all of the machines in his house start to attack him (Including a flying, unplugged electric shaver) and he is chased out of his house...But is then pursued by his own car, then being pushed into his pool.

    Quite a good episode, it was quite well-written (What "Twilight Zone" isn't?) and the strange string of events leading up to the ultimate ending were sublime.
