  • A creepy TZ classic!

    Yes, we've seen Twilight Zone characters suddenly find themselves in a strange, but familiar, environment (Where is Everybody). Yes, we've seen the TZ twists where the characters are actually miniatures (Five Characters in Search of an Exit), or being observed by human-like aliens(People Are Alike All Over). Yes, the morality tale on drunk driving is too specific, and too tacked on. Yet Stopover in a Quiet Town is indeed a TZ classic! Maybe it's in knowing that these rather unlikable characters are doomed to this life-free alien playground for their entire lives. In this sense, does it even matter that the characters aren't in hell? Maybe it's the slow journey these characters go on from hopeful to hopeless that makes this a real treat to watch.

    One wish: I would have liked to have seen them take the main road to the edge of town--how would this have been portrayed?
