    My favorite episode? 'The After Hours', 'The Hunt', 'Still Valley', 'Kick The Can', 'Howling Man' and 'Time Enough At Last' are a few of my favorite episodes. But. I think 'Time Enough At Last' is my absolute favorite.All Henry Bemiswanted to dowas read. He finally gets all the time in the world, being the only survivor a nuclear blast, to read. Then by some strange twist of fate, he breaks his glasses and loses the ability to read anything. How sad!!!

    I can't remember the name, but it is the one in which the hippie and the old guy are in the same room listening to Lawrence Welk-type music. The old guy is in heaven and the hippie is in hell.

    To Serve Man is another.

    I just cannot pick one and some of the ones that scared me the most as a little girl are my faves today

    But from 21 to 1 they are:

    21. The Silence-2nd season- the height of paying for ones silence

    20. Miniature-4th season thriller about a lonely man that falls in love with a doll in a doll-house.

    19. I Sing the Body Electric-3rd season story about an android and the family that makes her and takes her in.

    18.The New Exhibit-4th season - Wax figures of famous murders kill anyone that tries to do away with them

    17. To Serve Man- 3rd season classic about Iron-Chefs from outer space and their human body using cookbook.

    16. Mute- 4th season- always wanted to be able to read minds as a kid. This kid could but the teacher messed her up.

    15. The Odyssey of Flight 33-2nd season- You didn't want a window seat for this flight!

    14. The Arrival-3rd season- this could never happen nowadays too much security at airports.

    13.Long Distance Call-2nd season- that's one mean grandma! Love how her son put her down at the end.

    12. The Trade-Ins- 3rd season- two old fokes that want a new lease on life but they only have money for one body

    11. Nightmare at 20,000 Feet 5th season- Captain Kirk frightened of what is out in space? Naw.

    10.Little Girl Lost- 3rd season- a hole in the wall to another dimension and a girl that fell out of her bed make for a good story.

    9. The Invaders- 2nd season- One screaming woman; a spaceship with aliens; whats' not to love?

    8. The Fugitive-3rd season- what woman do you know that dosen't want a prince with magical powers to come and sweep her away?

    7. Twenty-Two- 2nd season- I to this day say to people "Room for one more honey" and some get it. But, please don't say that to me!

    6.The Lonely- 1st season (first one made) I think that they should start making prisons like this one.

    5. Number 12 Looks Just Like You- 5th season - One cup of instant smile coming up! artificial people; interesting premise. But no diversity! Tisk-tisk.

    4. The Eye of the Beholder- 2nd season-Beauty that is skin deep to who's perspective?

    3. The Bewitchin' Pool-5th season- I looked for a hole in every swimming pool to go and visit "Aunt T's" and her world.

    2. Living Doll- 5th season- the original "chucky" bad to the bone!

    Drum roll please-

    1. The Fever-1st season- Las Vegas gamblers look-out! there might be a slot machine out to get you!

    Sorry for the long list. I hope that some of my choices are different and help you find new favorites.

    Little girl lost is one of my faves because it was cool when I was a kid. Being grown I can see that it is a bit cheesie

    "The 7th is Made Up of Phantoms". It reminded me of a "deja vu" experience I had as a child when visting a battlefield in Gettysburg.

    My favorites are - "Death's Head Revisited" because of how intense it is with the deceased Jewish prisoners coming back to haunt this man that feels absolutely no remorse for the heinous acts he committed on humanity (it was so profound for me), "The Hunt" because of how sweet it is with his dog saving him from Satan (I'm an animal lover, and I also appreciate TZs that end happily), and "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You" because of how eerily true this view of plastic surgery is in today's society (I think people should be proud of their faces, regardless if they are what society deems is "cute" or "not cute") and how she's brainwashed to lose her individuality against her will.

    I can't believe I forgot about "Miniature"! I've always had a special place in my heart for that episode, it's just so sweet. Oooh, another good one I forgot is "Masks" directed by Ida Lupino. The selfish family is literally transformed into their inner reflections - genius!
