Top Ten Twilight Zone Episodes


The Top Ten

1 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

2 Eye of The Beholder

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 Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?

Suspicion makes it work. Great episode. - FakeGlasses

4 Five Characters In Search of an Exit

Had a great surprise ending. - Bluejay3

5 The Invaders
6 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

7 Nightmare at 20,000 Feet

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

8 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! - Bluejay3

9 Time Enought At Last

The ending was brilliant! It was really sad but I never would've expected it!!

10 Living Doll

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

The Contenders

11 The Howling Man
12 Nothing In the Dark
13 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"Any System that fails to recognize the freedoms of man is obsolete."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.

14 It's A Good Life

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.

15 The Midnight Sun
16 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.

17 The Masks
18 The Last Night of a Jockey
19 Lost Little Girl

Seriously, it's the most under rated, under shown Twilight Zone Episodes of all time. if you haven't seen it, find it... Gives me chills!
