At once poignant, eerie, and instantly memorable, the ahead-of-its-time (pun intended) program could teach viewers a lesson just as easily as it freaked them the heck out.

Even in the less successful episodes there's often something to enjoy, perhaps a mediocre script enlivened by the performance of a veteran actor or a young up-and-comer.

Some of the absolute best episodes of The Twilight Zone explore the stigmas and fears around mental illness-namely the paranoid feeling that no one around them will believe them.

Both the performances from Nelson and Malone and Earl Hamner Jr.'s script work to make them two of the most believable and well fleshed out characters in the series' history.

For its final episode, The Twilight Zone gives us something it spent most of its time railing against: a happy ending of perfect, selfish bliss.
