Top Ten Twilight Zone Episodes

The Top Ten
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.

Favourite episode nothing can beat this one.

Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?

The diverse cast of characters, well-paced plot, mystery element and epic ending make this a classic!

Suspicion makes it work. Great episode.

Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

A terrifying episode with believable acting, a well-executed story and William Shatner. Could it get any better?

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

Always great to see classic Shatner.

why don't they believe him, that really annoy's me.

The Monsters are Due on Maple Street

Rod Serling's closing narration still gives me goosebumps to this day. The script and acting made a powerful and timeless story resonate even more deeply.

Summary: everyone thinks everyone else is an alien trying to murder everyone because the power went off and some guys car turned on. The real aliens are like, "lol get rekt all we had to do was bust a few lights and turn on a car then they'll kill each other." The sad thing: this happens irl.

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

Frighteningly true classic about human behaviour.

Eye of The Beholder

I use this in my English classes in foreign countries. I present it as an example of perspective, societal norms and social conditioning.

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.

Living Doll

"My name is Talky Tina, and I'm going to kill you..."

*wets pants*

It's a living doll what's not to like my sister seen it when she was 6 and now she is 11 and still has nightmares

It's A Good Life

The most inescapable horror imaginable--not being able to think or fell anything bad with your fallible and frail mind even in the most awful conditions. And, not a lot of people realize, a compelling allegory for monotheistic religions.

How could it get more terrifying? This episode was used the twilight zone movie too, for very good reason. It's like seeing a real life hell.

This is the best episode as far as terror. what a nightmare

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.

Lol, this episode was actually kind of funny

The Masks

My favorite part of this episode is Jason Foster continuously roasting everyone like a straight-up savage!

The After Hours
The Contenders
Five Characters In Search of an Exit

Had a great surprise ending.

Nick Of Time
The Howling Man

Very good abd spookay bruhh yuh feel meh!

One For The Angels

The dilemma between love for others and fear of your own death and a suspenseful story with just enough comic relief that no one dies of anguish makes this a highly underrated episode in my view.

This was a really impressive episode. I'm watching through Season 1 and this was honestly incredible.

So great! I cried the first time I watched it!

Great story.. anda great portrayal

The Obsolete Man

"Any System that fails to recognize the freedoms of man is obsolete."

The execution of the plot is excellent with a great meaning.

The Invaders
Time Enough at Last

the best episode

A Nice Place To Visit
I Shot An Arrow Into The Air
Number 12 Looks Just Like You
Walking Distance

This episode was kind of sad. But so so true! We all wish to go back to our childhood at some time or another and relive those happy care free days. This episode was just so brilliant!

A Penny For Your Thoughts

Great story with pre-Bewitched Dick York.

Where is Everybody?

Very first episode. An absolutely brilliant way to start a series.

The Midnight Sun
What You Need

More people need to see this episode and understand its message, that nothing we can buy can guarantee our success, and "what we need" can only come from inside us.
