    I like the one where the people’s faces became the ugly masks that they were asked to wear by someone that recounted their ugly personalities.

    I also really like "A Game of Pool" with Jack Klugman & Jonathan Winters. An unusual role for Winters.

    But again, another lesson. I seem to prefer the ones with lessons the most, like parables, but so many good choices.

    You know, TZ never happened to be showing where I was living at that time, so I have not seen all of them. The one with the thing on the plane wing. Mostly cause Shatner was in it. Or the one where the astronauts crashed in the desert, but thought it was another planet. I may have to watch a few of the highly rated ones.

    The Talking Tina one. We’ve been watching them off and on all day and haven’t seen it yet but that one was always a favorite of mine.

    i just spent 15 minutes tracking down this episode, fearing it wasnt an episode of TZ after all... and that ended up being the case..

    My favorite episode of TZ is an espisode of TZ copycat, The Outer Limits - The Premonition



    my other favorite episde of TZ is the movie Carnival of Souls (lol)

    Just as I’m ready to post one another pops into my head. Then another. And on and on. Waaaay too many to list.

    I like when all the people were in the toy drop box, can’t remember all the details. Seems they were trying to figure out how to get out and in the end they’re dolls in a drop box

    This one was cool:

    "Nick of Time"

    I like them all (and night gallery too).

    Argh! I did the same thing thinking it was a TZ episode when it was an Outer Limits one that was my favorite. It was easy to find as the Outer Limits episode as it was the only 2-part episode there ever was - “The Inheritors”.

    Featured Robert Duvall who did a great job. Kind of fascinating read on Wikipedia. 4 men who came randomly together after war injuries to build a spaceship to help less fortunate children go to another world.

    I rather liked “Invaders”, though to say that no other episodes are favorites would be wholly incorrect. I love all of the ones already mentioned, as well as others. “A Nice Place to Visit” and “The Hunt” deal with Heaven and Hell from different perspectives and are good. Although I have to say the gentle nature of “The Hunt” appeals more to my wife.

    The Lonely. A man is exiled to an asteroid and then is given a "Robut" as they say in the episode. I won't go spoiler here. It's an early one though.

    :) I hope this isn't too far off topic, but Josh and I wrote a song about the Twilight Zone pinball machine, so there are a lot of references to the show. It made it to the demo stage, which we tracked at an open mic. We found that a helpful way to 'test drive' songs before developing it further. Sadly, never got around to developing this one. I'm on the electric, my LP.

    Yep, that's my favorite as well. Bit difficult to watch though, considering how it ends.
