      I watched some episodes recently, rode Tower of Terror for the first time recently at DCA, and now I am starting to get back into the Twilight Zone.

        Re: Twilight Zone Fans?

        I used my DVR a few weeks ago to record some of my favorites. Fortunately, I had some friends over for dinner 3 weeks ago and they brought their children and another rugrat. Including my two, the kids totalled 6 over the age of 6. One mentioned not being afraid of anything so I played the "Talking Tina" episode. Bad idea. My kids slept with me and DW in our bed and the other parents had similar results.
        Long story yes, but I am a Twilight Zone fan.

          I love watching the Twilight Zone. I love when the show marathons of it on Sci-Fi channel. Sometimes if I'm up late I watch the re-runs they show at 1am.

            We discussed this around, um, 4th-July?
            Love the TZ classic. Haven't gotten around to buying the DVD's yet. I also liked many of the episodes of the middle 1980's TZ series. (Some of the scarier ones.)

            I believe I watched the whole syndicated series at Noon on KTLA over a few summers in the early 1980's.

            Anywho, the Sci-Fi channel occasionally shows unedited ones in their marathons, and those are the ones I like to watch these days. They contain the TV promo that Rod did before the show, as well as the "Next week, we'll visit with..." promos.

              omg i was just thinking of starting a tz thread! you must have seen that tot thread the other day. anyway i am a huge fan (not of the new version though...crap)! My dad watched it when he was a kid and that slowly got me into it...then my friend who collects dvds started buying each season and now her, another, and I have tz marathons laughing at how funny it is and getting scared too! i think they are timeless and sometimes are very intelligent...though sometimes a bit silly and sometimes just plain scary...that gremlin!!! i love the tot only because it is related to tz...otherwise it makes me feel sick...i just love the special effects!

                    Re: Twilight Zone Fans?

                    My copy of The Twilight Zone Companion book is basically falling apart from constant research and re-readings.

                    You could say I'm a fan.
                    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                      What is that book about Jester? Does it describe all the episodes? Or does it talk about the background of the Twilight Zone?

                        If I recall correctly:
                        1. There was the one where the guy wanted to hear loud noises, but he ends up spoiler! spoiler! spoiler!
                        2. I don't remember, though I didn't watch any of them (just checked the listings before Conan started recording on the TiVo). And then, spoiler! spoiler! spoiler!
                        3. "Walking Distance" is one of the great time travel episodes, where the protagonist goers back in time to his hometown and then spoiler! spoiler! spoiler!

                        My brother has that book, and yes, it's in bad shape. He went through and wrote his own rating for each one. the book also goes into some detail about teh writers and producers, as well as the special-effects makeup guy, William (?) Tuttle.

                          KTLA (in LA) used to have the TZ marathons on 4-July. They were a big hit. when Sci-Fi took over, it kept up the tradition.

                            I only watched the last few minutes of the episode with the man who likes loud noises. But after that was the episode of a former Hollywood actress who wished to relive her past in the films she starred in.

                              That's right: Ida Lupino's acting episode. (She also directed one.)

                                It gives a fairly comprehensive of both the series and Rod Serling himself. It does give a synopsis for each episode, including his opening and concluding narrations, and for most of them there are commentaries and anecdotes.

                                What's most refreshing about the book is the brutal honesty of the author. He'll praise the stronger episodes, but be refreshingly frank about the weaknesses of many others (and while I am a great fan of TZ, you do have to admit that some episodes are better than other, and that there are a few "turkeys" (Rod Serling's own quote) out there, too. But the author states his opinions in such a way that even if you don't agree with him, you can understand where he's coming from. More often than not, I find him dead on.

                                A must have book for any fan of the show.
                                Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

                                  I agree. Great book for the fans.

                                    Do you guys/girls think any of the Tower of Terror rides really did a good job capturing the feel, mood, theme, and atmosphere of the Twilight Zone? I just didn't feel that at DCA. The ride was really fun in my opinion, but I think they should have made the lobby a bit more dark. I think the lobbies lighting should be somewhere in-between what it is now and how dark the Haunted Mansion foyer is.

                                      No.
                                      MGM's does a slightly better job, with the elevator actually moving forward to the dropping area. That's a little Twilighty-Zoney.
                                      And, since you pretty much know how this "episode" will end, since you've seen the ride from the outside, it's lacking that little twist that TZ usually has.
                                      Maybe something after the ride part is over -- perhaps a crashed elevator scene (or two) somewhere along the long and thoroughly uneventful walk to the gift shop.

                                        It kinda get a chuckle about DCA's version because they say the hotel was built many years ago, but in reality it was built clear as day, 3-4 years ago while people were attending the park :lol:.

                                        Was the one in MGM also built after that park opened?
