    Here we are. Two tales of one actor as two different bookworms. Darrell and Robert take on the great, classic Burgess Meredith episodes and answer once and for all if Robert is or isn’t related to Lynn Venable, the original story writer of TIME ENOUGH AT LAST. That episode, adapted for the show by Rod Serling, is easily identified as one of the most recognizable stories not just for THE TWILIGHT ZONE, but it is arguably one of the most recognizable television episodes of any show of all time. The amazing thing though about this podcast episode is our guys just might have liked THE OBSOLETE MAN even more than TIME ENOUGH AT LAST. Listen in and share your thoughts if you’d like to join the conversation.

    Before Star Trek

    Before Star Trek

    Before we loved them as Spock, Scotty, and Sulu, Leonard Nimoy, James Doohan, and George Takei all found their way into The Twilight Zone.  Leonard Nimoy appeared in the season 3 episode, "A Quality of Mercy," James Doohan appeared in the season 4 episode, "Valley of the Shadow," and George Takei appeared in the season 5 episode, "The Encounter."  While Nimoy and Doohan played smaller roles in their respective episodes, Takei took one of two lead roles in his feature and brought a standout performance that still brings a powerful moral lesson for today.  Two of these three episodes deal with the impact of WWII, a burden understood deeply by Rod Serling.  We hope you enjoy this month's episode as we return to the classic series.

    "You Might Also Like" brings us to the end of the second season. 20 episodes total for two seasons for this modern version of the Twilight Twilight Zone to establish itself. So, we guess the question is then, “did it, in fact, establish itself?”  The best answer we can give is we really hope there is a third season. 
    Let’s take the 10th episode of season two. For Robert, this episode unintentionally mirrors season one’s 10th episode. Season one’s last episode went for broke and it was awesome. Season two went for broke in the first half of the episode but then went “meh” the rest of the way...at least that's the way we saw it. Let’s still hope for a season three. The show is overall worth keeping establishing itself. 
    Thanks for joining us!! And keep checking in monthly as we cover the classic episodes. Oh, My!! Take care everyone!

    Try, Try

    Try, Try

    "Try, Try" comes in for us as one of the most thought provoking of Twilight Zone season 2. Do we really know anyone? Do we really trust anyone? Who is to say the people who are really good at something are good at it because they’ve been given the opportunity to give it another try, and another try , and so on until they perfect it. The Twilight Zone examines the concept of this in its second season’s ninth episode. Join Robert and Darrell as
    Darrell continues his quest messing with Robert’s identity in our intro section, and Robert plays TZ Mega-Fan once again— is there nothing this guy doesn’t like any more? Fun discussion once again. Silly science fiction show stirred up deep thoughts. Thanks for joining us!! Try to enjoy it!!

    A Small Town

    A Small Town

    “A Small Town” got big ratings from Robert, sort of big ratings from Darrell, but nothing but small ratings from our viewer feedback section, Talky Tina. What was it about a pleasant, mostly one dimensional story about doing good in the world from a supernatural scale model of a small town in a church attic that didn’t land well with everyone? Maybe that’s just it, not a deep enough story for deep story loving Twilight Zone fans. Be that as it may, the machine and its machinations took Robert to a new theory that the episode actually represented a symbol for what the Twilight Zone is—it is our modern day Deus Ex Machina that opens the story doors to today’s issues and sets up a non-confrontational debate stage for viewers to see their world through the different colored light filters of a tv playhouse. Darrell and Robert discuss that theory and other ones on this potentially flat episode that produced a roller coaster ride of up and down ratings.

    A Human Face

    A Human Face

    Here we are, 70% finished with season 2 of the new Twilight Zone series. I haven’t done the math, but I think it is fair to say we like season 2 at least more than 70% of our collective capacity to like the episodes so far. That being said, some people like this episode far more than we do. And you know what, that’s ok. It’s ok because in this podcast episode we examine what it means to lose loved ones and what love, itself, means to us and to these characters. Can you trust a space traveling pacification drone to take the place of a cherished person you lost for good, but now you’ll see this thing be just like them and they’ll have an “uber” knowledge about you that illuminates what went wrong in the past? Seemingly this household and this street have made a leap of faith to feel that love again and have it returned. And there’s why the Twilight Zone is generally better than just 70% because a story about lost loved ones is ultimately a story about faith…and that topic will go one for eternity. Enjoy. Share. And reconnect with loved ones present and past.
