We continue our series about THE TWILIGHT ZONE (which only has two episodes, but that’s actually not too shabby) by covering three Christmas themed episodes of the show (“The Night of the Meek”, “Five Characters in Search of an Exit”, and “The Changing of the Guard”), plus A CAROL FOR ANOTHER CHRISTMAS (Rod Serling’s riff on A CHRISTMAS CAROL that the team learned about in our Christmas carol episode last week).
These episodes were chosen because of their Christmas connections and because Ben found the Rod Serling movie, A CAROL FOR ANOTHER CHRISTMAS, watched it, enjoyed it, and wanted to talk about it! But he ALSO watched the other three classic Christmas episodes. TWO of them are some of the best Twilight Zone episodes ever. ONE of them gave Ben a lump in his throat. And then there’s the movie that’s NOT a Twilight Zone episode, but might as well be.
Join Ben as he enters into a realm of shadow and substance . . . the Twilight Zone!
