Barnes & Noble -Though cancelled in 1964, The Twilight Zone remains television's most treasured anthology program. The brainchild of writer/narrator Rod Serling -- no doubt inspired by the pulp comics, novels, and sci-fi films of his youth -- the series introduced its own special brand of weirdness to viewers on October 2, 1959. Five years followed, and The Twilight Zone went through the show business wringer as network executives tried to squeeze more profits from the already successful show. Experiments ranged from cutting costs with six episodes shot on videotape to dropping "The" from the series' title -- but no matter what, rave reviews continued, and every week loyal fans tuned in to enter the infamous dimension of sight, sound, and mind. Episodes included here are:
- "I Shot an Arrow Into the Air" Ep. 15, January 15, 1960: The world's first manned space mission goes awry, stranding the crew on an apparent asteroid that is desolate and waterless. One man ruthlessly grasps for survival before a peculiar symbol reveals the group's true location.
- "Death Ship" Ep. 108, February 7, 1963, 50 min.: Three astronauts discover a wrecked duplicate of their spaceship and their own dead bodies! Determined to prove that they are alive, Captain Ross Jack Klugman launches their spaceship again...and again.
- "Still Valley" Ep. 76, November 24, 1961: A Confederate soldier Gary Merrill gets the chance to win the Civil War for the South. But to do that, he must call on a very dubious ally.
