The Twilight Zone Marathon was on recently. What is your favorite Twilight Zone episode?
One of my favorite episodes is about a beautiful woman who undergoes plastic surgery, to resemble the hideous people around her.

My two favorites are "Time Enough at Last" with Burgess Meredith and "Living Doll" with Telly Savalas ("My name is Talky Tina, and I don't think I like you!")
Oh, I love those episodes. Telly Savalas used to play Kojak! And I love the stalking Talking Tina Doll. Good stuff.
My absolute favorite is the one where Burgess Meredith played the role of a timid bank teller, always wanting time to read books. When a bomb eliminates everyone on earth but him and he finds many books available and not damaged at the library, irony sets in and his glasses slip off his face and break.
All that he could wail was that it wasn't fair and there was so much time (for him to read). I also like one of the other episodes he was in where he was sentenced to death because he was considered obsolete. I caught some of that marathon too hoping to see these episodes and I did
My fave is the "Living Doll" episode. It is the only episode from the entire series that ever truly gave me the creeps!
to serve man is a great episode. i also like the monsters are due on maple street
One of my favorites was Food For The Gods or something like that. It was a recipe book that was brought my aliens, who said that they came in peace and the end was when one of the guys was getting on the spaceship and figured it all out.....humans were food and they were being fattened up for the aliens (the gods). It says a lot of what the humans do today even..they follow anything that they deem is higher than themselves--like government and religion and such.
That's what I love about the Twilight Zone, the plots are so interesting. I never seen that one. How interesting and scary.
thats one of my favorites too. it called "to serve man". everyone thought the aliens had to come to be servants or something. they had a book "to serve man". in the end one of them realized it was a cook book
Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up? I really love that twist at the end.
