Twilight Zone Sn1 Ep7 "The Lonely"

Original Airdate: November 13, 1959

“The Lonely” seems to channel the bleak tone of “Where is Everybody?” with the story of a man isolated from all contact, only this time instead of an amnesiac stumble through the story we get a dark tale of a future where felons serve their time alone on asteroids scattered throughout space. 539 more words

Reviews

The Twilight Zone - Season 3, Episode 15 - "A Quality of Mercy" - A Matter of Empathy and Mercy

    This episode has officially got me interested in watching the rest of “The Twilight Zone.” I really enjoy shows that make me think…it’s one reason I love the “Star Treks,” enjoyed the episode of “Black Mirror” I reviewed and tend to enjoy films like “Inception.” This was a good episode to kick off Leonard Nimoy week too, as he plays a small but key role in this episode of “The Twilight Zone.” This was one of his earliest works as Nimoy starred in this episode in 1961. 708 more words

Favorite Episodes

The Human Animal: "Planet of the Apes" (1968)

      If by its general definition which includes an elemental nihilism in both its thematic genetics and within the limited but evident visual aesthetic, film noir is certainly the most  formally pessimistic of the film genres. 734 more words

The Thomas Wolfe adage, “You can’t go home again,” is the basis for “Twilight Zone’s” fifth episode, “Walking Distance” in which a walk to town becomes a much longer walk through time and memory. 306 more words
