Top Ten Twilight Zone Episodes


The Top Ten

1 The Hitch-Hiker

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

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)


3 To Serve Man

What? Never watched Twilight before. Must be cool and popular? I might watch it soon or not who knows? I'm just a weird person not knowing what Twilight is and why am I on this post typing right now wasting my time saying I never watched Twilight..

First time I saw this, I never would have thought a cookbook. - RdrTech

4 Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

William shatner alone mkes this a great episode. Also the plot for this episode was parodied many times.

5 Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?

Suspicion makes it work. Great episode. - FakeGlasses

so lit

6 Five Characters In Search of an Exit

Had a great surprise ending. - Bluejay3

7 The Monsters are Due on Maple Street

Always fun to watch. Plus, a classic, great ending.

Frighteningly true classic about human behaviour.

This episode has one of the best premises of the entire show with a fantastic moral.

My english class got to watch this episode - BoyGenius234
