The 10 Best Twilight Zone Episodes

Last Fri­day marked the 50th anniver­sary of The Twi­light Zone’s debut on Amer­i­can tele­vi­sion, a big occa­sion for fans of sci-fi, hor­ror and sus­pense. To cel­e­brate the anniver­sary, TV Squad pulled togeth­er a list of the 10 best episodes of Rod Ser­ling’s show. At the top, you might put the episode called “Eye of the Behold­er,” which we’ve post­ed above. For the remain­ing nine, vis­it the TV Squad list and also see the inter­views with Rod Ser­ling toward the end of their page. Enjoy.

    OMG I used to get so freaked out by this show when I was a kid. Tough to believe it’s been around 50 years already.

    I liked your list but out of so many episodes it is
    very dif­fi­cult to come up
    with the 10 best (or even
    the 25 best) episodes.

    You left out some great episodes like…
    “What You Need”,
    “A World of His Own”,
    “A Most Unusu­al Cam­era”,
    and “Third From the Sun”.

    I am tru­ly a “Twi­light Zone” fan!
