    17 here. I didn't grow up with the Twilight Zone like some. But I started watching it and I love the show so much. Serling is a genius with what he has created.

    25 (26 in 4 days) and I love the show, as well.  Serling is ABSOLUTELY a genius!  The show was definitley ahead of its time. One of my personal favorite shows that I can stay up late just to watch.

    29 years old almost pushing 30. I've been a fan since I was 16 years old. I can watch these episodes over and over again.

    23... why are we all so young? None of us were around when the show was even running... I know we were for the remakes, but not for the original... I would watch it at my friends house two doors down where he lived with his grandma that was definitely around then (and still is!). Maybe it's because we're typing on the computer... well... It'd be cool to see someone around retirement age posting in here I think.

    13.      There should be more teens on here.

    Sadly, I don't really watch TZ because it's almost always a school night.

    But, I am thankful for the New Years' and 4th of July marathons.

    Hi, my name's Princessd.  (Hi Princessd.)  I'm 16 now, but I started when I was 13.  I'm still addicted, but I don't want to go into rehab.  This is the greatest show of all time.  Serling is my hero.

    I'm 15 and I like the show alot too. I always liked scary shows and movies so I really wanted to watch this show when I heard about it. Most of the episodes aren't scary but they have good endings and I like almost every episode.

    Do they still do the marathons? For some reason I don't get the the sci-fi channel. I don't know whether or not it comes on a different channel.

    Well, it just goes to show you that old 60's shows can appeal to the younger generation of today. TZ certainly worked on me. It's theme music, the creepy aura, the stangeness of it all. And not to mention that some of the episodes warn us about what is wrong with the world today.

    I don't think it airs on any other channels. There is a big New Years Eve Marathon coming up.

    Very true. I haven't seen a single person over 30 answer this question.

    Yo! I'm 31.

    Use to watch The Twilight Zone and then Carson's Comedy Classics (clips of his Tonight Show skits and stuff) when I was a kid back in the 80's.

    I'm sooooo old.

    I'm 24, I've seen this show since I was about 15, it just has that immortal life span and quality like "It's a Wonderful Life" no matter how old it is, it's still a beautiful story because it has a universial effect which touches all generations.

    Oh, you shouldn't say that. I know plenty of people in their 60's who can do more online than I can. I think you are missing the point that an old show can appeal to people of all ages. It shows how universal and timeless the show is. Lay off old people. We will all be there one day.
