Twilight Zone was the gold standard of storytelling. The writers (mostly Rod Serling) managed to put an allegorical spin on many of the tales, to talk about war and censorship and the evil that men do. A few years after the Twilight Zone came a TV show that was just as weird, except there was no attempt at teaching a lesson. Humans fought against monsters, scientifically, and sometimes against their own weaknesses.
It was next on my list of Things That Make Me Go *shudder*shudder*EEW.
My favorite episode was The Sixth Finger. Frightening, gloomy, and yet with such campy lines as, "Your ignorance makes me ill and angry." Yes, Gwyllm, I agree.
The fun part about this particular episode is that Gwyllm, the miner who is scientifically evolved into the Big Brain, was played by David McCallum. From childhood, I've had a major crush on him. Now that he's Ducky on NCIS, he's still crush-worthy to me.
This isn't his best look.
Any of you ever watch this show? How about Twilight Zone?
Compare and contrast, please, Class.
