    The following episodes of the Zone were broadcast during its initial run, but pulled from syndication:



    1) Sounds and Silence


    2) A Short Drink From a Certain Fountain


    3) The Encounter


    4) Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge



    QUESTIONS:



    -- WHY?


    -- Are they available anywhere?


    -- Know anything about the first three?

    Legal reasons. Some of them were disputed by authors claiming the episode was based on a story they had written. Owl Creek because it was a foreign short that they had to buy the rights to, so they could air.

    These days, they're on th DVD collection and air on SyFy. Except maybe Owl Creek. Not sure if MeTV runs them.

    No, these episodes are not on MeTV. And I have a beef regarding them and the Zone: They show one episode weekdays, but two on Sunday. I suggested to them that as long as they have that hour time slot, they should use it to show the unseen hour-long episodes of the fourth season, instead of two half-hour shows that we've seen already. No response from them.

    Does anyone know... which episode ended like this?

    A man sitting on the floor is being encircled by MANY flying insects. The flying insects were illustrated by many thin lines being drawn circling the man in random flight patterns (like a flying insect might take). And then within seconds the man was enclosed by the flying insects. Thank you.
