Submitted For Your Approval

Ahh, new year's eve. It's time to reflect on the past year, put down your wishes for the next one, and focus on what''s important: the annual Twilight Zone marathon on SyFy.

WPIX used to handle this pop culture extravaganza and SyFy appropriately picked it up a few years ago. Now it's the one thing I look forward to at the end of every year. The show is spooky enough but what's really spooky is that every year, I manage to see an episode I've never seen before. How is that possible? (cue famous theme song)

You can get a schedule of all this year's episodes here. I personally can't wait for December 31st at 7. And 7:30. The one at 11:30 is awesome. And just about every episode from 3:30 pm to 11:30 pm on the 1st. It's probably more than a little pathetic that I'd rather sit here on the couch watching TV than celebrating the new year but then again, look who we're talking about.

I wonder, out of 156 episodes, how many dealt with someone making some deal with the devil? How many took place on some far away planet that, in the end, turned out to be earth?

So which one is your favorite? Burgess Meredith and the broken eyeglasses? William Shatner and the fortune teller? Or the airplane? Jack Klugman and Jonathan Winters playing pool? Telly Savalas and the talking doll?

The airplane episode is my favorite one. Enjoy the marathon - I have to go be social. Boo!
