I know sometimes it feels like we might be living in some version of The Twilight Zone, but today we actually kind of are! It is May 11th, National Twilight Zone Day! Created by Rod Serling, "The Twilight Zone," has had multiple iterations but I love the first series. Every episode is its own little yarn and while not every tale is a winner, many are amazing. A stellar piece of sci-fi (and sometimes dipping its toe in horror), "The Twilight Zone," inspired so many other people and stories--you've probably seen something that draws inspiration from, "The Twilight Zone," and have not even known it!
Why is May 11th the day we celebrate this show? Nobody seems to actually know. The reason it is today seems to be as mysterious as, "The Twilight Zone," itself. Whatever the reason, spend today watching some original episodes, the movie, or one of the rebooted versions if you'd like!
