  • Where the Series Starts

    This is the episode where The Twilight Zone really kicked in, the first story that defined what the series was. A great, dramatic script about an ageing, faded film star who refuses to accept her past has deserted her, and a twist at the end that eventually became the hallmark of the series.

    It's not one of my favourite episodes, but it's where the writing really began to take shape.
