    No matter how many times I’ve dip into it in the past, I continue to enjoy the Twilight Zone marathons.

    Always a big rating winner for Syfy.

    It’s only one of the best-written TV shows since the dawn of the medium. Rod Serling was truly a genius. His on-camera set-ups of the program, and his words spoken at the end of the broadcast, truly shows how he mastered the English language. You would be hard pressed to find someone like that on camera these days. Knowing it was another era in the late-50s and early-60s, some folks smoked cigarettes on camera as we were reminded recently when Mike Wallace passed on. Mike lived on to his 90s, but Rod passed away long before his time because of that awful habit.

    Great, something to watch on TV on the 4th of July! I can’t wait!

  • Bannister

    I just hate it that it still airs in black & white. I can’t really watch stuff in b&w anymore like I used to.

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Bannister: Some of the best movies of all time were filmed in black & white. You must not have grown up with B&W TV. Growing up, we didn’t have a color set until 1968. TV Land would be nothing like it is now without the classic black & white series.

    It wasn’t until the Fall of 1968 did all of the prime-time series on ABC, CBS & NBC went color. I think ABC may have had a couple of B&W shows. I believe “Rat Patrol” was one of them.

    (Correction): It was the Fall of 1965! (not ’68 as stated above).

    And Bannister, Black and White is KEY to the appeal of this series! It gives it atmosphere and an otherworldly feel, and it’s one of many factors that any remakes of the show in Tv or in the TZ movie weren’t as effective. Not just the story, but the look. I love black and white movies, and wish they’d make more in that medium.
