  • A Classic Episode in the Twilight of the Series

    10
    In its very essence, this is the quintessential "Twilight Zone" episode. I was confused from another review on this page claiming this episode to be uncharacteristic of the series and people blatantly ignoring its roots. It's impossible to watch the episode without appreciating the homage, hence Rod Serling's very unique introduction.



    Now, this episode may have a different approach than the rest of the series, but that doesn't make it any less a "Twilight Zone" themed episode; as Rod Serling always said: "This is the dimension of imagination" - and that truly is this episode's theme. When real cinematic flavor is added, corny acting removed and the real genius of Rod Serling coming to life in a brilliant homage to a spectacular French short film, you have the culmination of a series presented to you in a way never experienced.



    It may not be my favorite episode, and it may not be yours, but it is certainly worth watching. I hope this review was helpful.
