Top Ten Twilight Zone Episodes


The Top Ten

1 The Hitch-Hiker

Favourite episode nothing can beat this one.

Beautiful premise and plot that sustains constant terror throughout all viewers. Tremendous actors who greatly potrayed one of the most essential morals exemplified during the Twilight Zone's run. Words couldn't describe how moving and magnificent that episode was, amd it was definitely something that can be enjoyed decades beyond it's time.

2 Eye of The Beholder

The reason this was the best episode was because I like the hold eyes as well. This was an interesting installment in the Twilight Zone trilogy although, the part where there cars are driving off cliffs but fly instead of fall was a bit of a weird one. Anyways, going to woodstock, anyone wanna connect there? Also, I wanted to vote the episode where Billy says "Dartinian" but that's not on here and that's a shame.

This was the first Twilight Zone episode I ever saw and it hooked me into the show. Its clever writing, great acting and surprising plot twist make it a solid episode. It also had a great, deep message at the end. If it wasn't for this, I wouldn't have seen episodes such as To Serve Man or The Living Doll.

Honestly, this one is kind of overrated in my opinion. I've always found the ending super predictable and obvious, but it has a good message. - chevygolderado

this twilight zone has the best message out of all of them (y)

4 To Serve Man

Lol, this episode was actually kind of funny
