"The Twilight Zone," was a show that started in 1959 and ran for five seasons. The show was created by Rod Serling. This classic show is still a popular one for many sci-fi and horror fans. So it's no wonder why Syfy loves to marathon it during the holidays!
"The Twilight Zone" had many different themed stories like: killer dolls, vengeful ghosts, aliens trying taking over the world, evil robots, haunted cameras, and many other strange themes. Some stories were kind of funny while others were just down right freaky.
The show really was ahead of it's time and paved the way for many other popular paranormal anthologies.
Syfy is airing many episodes but some of my favorites and for newcomers to look out for are:
- "Perchance to a Dream" (31st, 9:30 a.m.)
- "Where is Everybody" (31st, 7 p.m.)
- "The Howling Man" (31st, 9:30 p.m)
- "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" (1st, 10 p.m.)
- "The Grave" (1st, 2:30 a.m.)
The themes of these stories are about gremlins, the devil, a desolate town, and a man who has killer dreams. These five episodes are good but there are plenty of more that will be showing tomorrow and Wednesday that are good. Check out the full schedule: "Zone Marathon."
So this New Year's Eve and Day spend it with Rod Serling and go to "The Twilight Zone." It's a strange but fascinating place.
