That show use to scare the crap out of me. The first and end where they showed that house really scared the crap out of me. I use to think that guy that talked at the first of the shows was a real person.

I miss the show,btw if you're into shows like that we had one back in my day called Night Gallery.It was hosted by Rod Serling the creator of Twilight Zone as well.

Anyhow if you ever get a chance check out the tv pilot movie for the series.There's a great short on there starring Roddy McDowell about a painting of the family cemetery that keeps changing.

I'm a huge fan of the original Twilight Zone. I'd have the DVD set if it weren't so damn high. For now I settle for the occasional reruns on the Sci-Fi channel.

I also enjoyed Tales from the Crypt, Tales from the Darkside, etc...

Side note... anyone remember "Friday Fright Night"?

Doesn't sci-fi have the occasional marathon as well?

As for Friday Fright Night I vaguely remember it,my best memories take me back as a kid when Uncle Ed had a Saturday night show called Creature Feature.

Yeah, usually one day a week is all Twilight Zone. From like 9am to 5pm, I think.

No, he's a guy. He's got longer curly hair and has a weird voice. It's on scifi (commercials right now).

I really dug FFN.

What was that one show that was hosted by some guy who kinda looked like Larry King. They would show his commentary and antics during the commercial breaks. As I recall he always had his 2 cats with him on the program named caffeina and nicotina. I swear I'm not making this up. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

The original Twilight Zone had great actors and great acting.

I wish I could remember his name now, Mr. Skip Towne, but there was a famous actor to said in an interview that he developed his technique(s) from watching Twilight Zone.

Every mug known to man was displayed at one time or another on that show.

Didn't Rod also write those?

I thought they were great, he was very creative and before his time - excellent stuff

A little bit of an aside here, and I certainly would not want to hijack Mr. Dunit35's thread, but I'm curious if anyone on this board remembers a late night, local show that used to run in the KS, OK, MO area on Saturday nights. The name of the show was Mezeppa Pompazoidi.

The guy that had the show was Gaylord Sartain (whose father, I believe, owned the station or something). Gary Busey was on the show a lot. It had to be one of the funniest shows ever.

Does anyone here remember it?

Thanks for the link, I was looking at it and I couldn't find the one that I remember the most; the one with "The Rifleman" and "Branded" dude.

There was another one that was funny, one of the ones that Rod didn't agree with, "A Matter of Semantics" it has Dracula coming into a woman's bedroom at night, and she wakes up and says, "I gave at the office" (or something very close to that) and he broke out a pen and paper and said something like, "oh really? I'm sorry what's your name?" and takes her information down and disappears out of the room again... ROFL

I don't recall the first one but the other I do.

The episodes that really got me were The Sineater starring Richard Thomas and the one about the family cemetery painting that I referenced earlier.

That's him! Dude was a bit strange but still funny at times. And what was the deal with him always showing the back of his hand. I think he even had a rubber hand sitting on his desk, among other weird props.

Thanks for the link Nzoner.
