Stuck in the ZONE!

I just can’t get over how a show that is over 50 years old and in back and white can kick the crap out of anything out there today. You know what I’m talking about, right? Well if not, shame on you. I’m talking about the Zone. That’s right, the Twilight Zone. How is this half hour program from a time that Agent Orange was a just another yard product, is kicking the crap out of all TV has to offer?

Rod Serling is the best Science fiction TV writer since the beginning of the television medium. Serling was an ending guru. This is a man who could twist your head of by the end of the show. Really think about it. When was the last time you had a HOLY $h*T revelation? It just doesn’t happen to often, once a year, at the most maybe.

The closest I have seen to the caliber of a Serling is writer and director M Night Shyamalan. But lets face it; those days are long gone.
