  • Walter Jameson is a respected history professor at a prestigious university. His students say he teaches history as if he lived it. One night, at the home of one of his fellow professors, Jameson reveals the reason why he knows history so well.

    This episode is one one of the better ones of the first season of "The Twilight Zone" for a number of reasons. The first is Kevin McCarthy's very good performance. The supporting characters act well also, but McCarty's performance stands out. Another reason is how it focuses on something that many human beings hope for just as must today as when this episode aired for the first time: immortality. I like how this episode explores the dark side of what many people would believe to be a gift. Not many people realize that everything has a dark side. Entertaining episode.
