And they have TZ marathons during New Years and 4th of July.Warner Cable now airs an RTV (retro-TV) station at night. They have had some old classic TV shows similar to TZ on:1) Alfred Hithcock presents. I remember these as being regular viewing in my household as a very young man. He was the master of deception, irony and twists in his time.2) Night Gallery. A show that tried to emulate Twilight Zone. Was actually another series hosted by Rod Serling. Just didn't quite have the same success.Good to see some of these shows!Edit: Didn't realize this was my 2000th post!!

Mr. MacPhisto wrote:Hitchcock is classic. Night Gallery not so much, though it has its moments.But I really love The Twilight Zone. I need to pick the series up on DVD at some point. It used to be on late at night on Sci-Fi and I would tune in a few years ago, but I think they stopped airing it at that time. Not sure if they still show it aside from the marathons.

I haven't seen an episode since my childhood which is longer ago than I want to admit.... when Outer Limits just wasn't black and white, all of TV was black and white. I still vividly remember an episode when I was around 5 years old, and even have more vivid memories of the recurring corresponding nightmare that resulted from it.Edit: I just looked up the episode. It was the original episode in the series. It was called "Galaxy Being." And I was 5 years old.
