    This show was one of the reasons i got into writing, as all of the storys feel like printed short storys to me.
    I don’t really like the new one too much, but the original had some real classics.

    The outer limits too!

    Have a read about the death of the actors in the Twilight Zone movie, very weird.

    I just got this series on DVD and it’s excellent. It’s even got a very young Jean Marsh in the 6th episode – The Lonely i think it’s called.

    Superb, it’s interesting how different this series feels now i’m watching it as an adult, rather than looking at the story i’m looking at the meaning …

    The original Twilight Zone and Outer Limits were ace, but does anyone remember ‘Boris Karloff Presents’ (I think it was called?) It had a similar format to the other 2, and I remember it being scary. Channel 4 showed it again in the early 80s.

    Yep loved the Outer Limits and Twilight Zone as a kid, the OL titles were the scariest thing on TV.

    I can remember being scared witless by these programmes in the sixties.  That’s when I got to see them.  They were generally shown after my bedtime.

    Of course as an adult I’ve now seen almost all of them – brilliant stories which confirm to me the essential nature of science fiction and science fantasy to the present day story telling method

    The eighties revival of the Twilight Zone was not particularly succesful……… However,

    If you ever get the chance check out ‘The paladin of the last hour’ starring Danny Kaye in one of his very last roles and written by Harlan Ellison and……….

    One of The Most Poignant Short Stories ever written…

    Used to scare the absolute crap out of me and I think they probably still would!

    Now thats a great statement, I like was it says, its really quite true.

    They are also like the old sixties episodes of Who to me, they had to scare on a budget, so not all the scares are visual.

    YEap will check that one out. I’ve only got the first series but have been wondering if i’ll be able to work my way up to the 1980s versions. (these 1950’s ones have a particular charm i think) Apparently they did a 00’s series too – i don’t know if that’s going to be worth checking out though it will be interesting to see what they came up with for the title sequence.

    Does anyone recall an episode from the 90’s about a shadowman?
