    This episode is probably my favorite episode of the original Twilight Zone series. The premise of tall freakish-looking aliens coming to Earth has been done before, but never in this way. \\\"To serve man, to end world hunger,\\\" the mission of these aliens seems harmless enough. The episode includes someone funny instances of alien, like in the UN scene. However, the legendary part of the episode is the final minute or so. All of a sudden the woman runs up and says not to go because \\\"IT\\\'S A COOKBOOK!!\\\" The classic twist in the end is so surprising and at the same time grotesquely funny that it makes this episode the Twilight Zone\\\'s finest.
