The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street was my favorite Twilight Zone episode

Mugato: SPOILER ALERT: He's been dead the whole time.

Best example of "he' was dead the whole time", 'Kentucky Rye' (can't link for some reason).

Not to get all hipsterish in a Twilight Zone thread but I prefer its original incarnation "A Nice Place to Visit

Dr.Zom: Daviud Duchovny would be a pretty good candidate for hosting. He's already done something similar with Red Shoe Diaries and he's got geek cred to boot.

"I'm going to show you some farked up supernatural shiat tonight. And this time there isn't an annoying biatch here to tell me that it doesn't exist. I mean really, every farking week, 'Mulder, there's no such things as....' STFU!. I don't care how hot and red headed you are. Just trust me for one episode that maybe the shiat I'm bringing down is real, you farking...oh sorry, Uh, here's the Twilight Zone."

Forget it. Twilight Zone was Serling's idea and only he knew how to make it work. The movie and reboots after he died were feeble copies at best.

CBS, DON'T...DO...IT. The original series stood the test of time.

I can see it now. Within the first 2 minutes of the first episode, someone will mention vagina, penis, drugs, casual sex, or body excreta. Or there will be gratuitous violence or blood letting.

Some things can be better when left to the imagination.

Godscrack: I have all the episodes, but I always watch the marathons hoping I will catch one I've never seen before.

They never get old.

That's just it.

It doesn't matter if you have them memorized. Those episodes continue to make for good viewing, especially with a solid supply of snacks and what-have-ya.

ManateeGag: maybe they can come with good, original ideas.  and not manage to kill someone in the process.

They need a strong, central creative mind or two behind the show to make it work.
The original TZ had Rod Serling. The first season of the '85 show had Harlan Ellison and Rockne S. O'Bannon behind it, and Season 3 had J. Michael Straczynski writing some of the better episodes.
'03 didn't have a strong central figure behind it, and '03 failed all the way around.

Another Twilight Zone fiasco?  Heads will roll.
