    Mine is the one with the woman on the horse that see's herself when she is younger and is angry with how her life turned out.

    Also, the one where the children jump in a pool to visit a better life than the one they have.

      The book lover who broke his glasses after the nuclear war.  Burgess Meredith I believe.

        That was my favorite, too. A close second was the one with the woman in the hospital, her face all bandaged up. The ending, where the hospital staff removes the bandages, was another classic twisting of perspectives that (for me) was the show's trademark.

    I liked alot of them-- though I can't  rightly recall the ones you mentioned .
    I liked the one about the last man alive-- who had the library all to himself and broke his glasses.

    Edit: someone slipped in before me. smile

    My favorite Twilight Zone was the one with the doll--Talking Tina, who would be nice to everyone but Telly Savalas.  Savalas tried to cut off the doll's head with a buzz-saw, but she came back and tripped him up on the stairs, killing him.  At the bottom of the stairs, the doll said to Savalas' wife, "My name is Talking Tina and you better be good to me..."

    Sends a chill down my back just writing about it!  Great episode.

    The one with Billy Mumy as the little kid who had everyone doing whatever he wanted or dying in awful ways.

    The one with Burgess Meredith is also a favorite.

    There are really too many to mention.

    I can't believe no one has mentioned "Monsters Are Due on Maple Street."  How perfect that all it took to incite panic and accusations in the townspeople was turning off the lights.

    "It's a Good Life" with Billy Mumy.
    "...but it's a real good thing you did. A real good thing. And tomorrow....tomorrow's gonna be a... real good day!"

    The cornfield, the jack in the box....awesome.

      yeah that scary kid and the talking doll were good ones. i would have told that kid what he was doing was bad, i mean, what are they going to do when he's 16?

      anyway, more favorites are the one where william shatner is on an airplane and he sees a gremlin. and the one where this gorgeous blonde is being stalked in a department store and the elevator keeps taking her to an empty floor that no one knows about. or the one where that little girl falls into the wall. oh and that one where this woman gets cosmetic surgery to be beautiful and everyone around her is grotesque.

    One of my many favourites is "To Serve Man".

    "The recollections of one Michael Chambers, with appropriate flashbacks and soliloquy. Or more simply stated, the evolution of man, the cycle of going from dust to dessert, the metamorphosis from being the ruler of a planet to an ingredient in someone's soup. It's tonight's 'bill of fare' from the Twilight Zone."

    So many episodes of "The Twilight Zone" were written by brilliant writers such as Richard Matheson, who had a few of his short stories made into TZ episodes including another one of my favourites, "Third from the Sun".

    I don't watch TV anymore, however if there was a quality show like "The Twilight Zone", a show that actually told imaginative  stories and made me think, I would be tempted to plug myself in again. Unfortunately, television has not exactly improved with age.
