The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: A Stop at Willoughby (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
Tired of his miserable job and wife, a businessman starts dreaming on the train each night, about an old, idyllic town called Willoughby. Soon he has to know whether the town is real and fancies the thought of seeking refuge there. (51 mins.)
“ A true classic. Not only was I in a similar situation, I think most of us over the course of life can compare ourselves to Gart Williams, the lead character of this story about a man who is not happy with his job, his spouse, and to live in the society he lives in. His only salvation seems to be...A stop at Willoughby.

He lives in a world with a money-hungry woman who he doesn't get along with, a job and moreover a boss which he can't stand, and he just starting to crack under pressure. During the long train ride home one day he awakens to find himself the only passenger on a different train that seems to have gone back in time. The conductor comes by and offers him a chance to visit Willoughby, a town in 1888 - quiet little village where a man can slow down to a walk and live his life full measure.

He doesn't get off the first time, but every now and then he awakens on that train, being offered the chance to go. This story is great and very re-watchable. Over time this has crept up slowly on my favorite list to where it stand today. A top five closing narrative too. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Where Is Everybody? (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.0/10 X  
Mike Ferris finds himself alone in the small Oakwood town and without recollection about his name, where he is or who he is. Mike wanders through the town trying to find a living soul. The tension increases and Mike has a breakdown. (51 mins.)
“ This is a close second. I love the plot...a guy "wakes up" but instead of being in bed he's out on a deserted road walking towards a town with no people, though there is evidence that people were just there. This was the pilot episode and I'm glad Rod Serling used it to sell the series.

It gives a great sense of eerie-ness to it, much like "King Nine Will Not Return" or to a lesser extent "Stopover in a Quiet Town" tries to do. You'll notice some episodes may use the same plot-line but do if differently. Usually one is real good and the other can vary from good to awful but this one is the real good version. If both versions are good, that shows the quality of the plot. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Time Enough at Last (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.1/10 X  
A henpecked book lover finds himself blissfully alone with his books after a nuclear war. (51 mins.)
“ This episode is the one people talk about the most I think, and for good reason. Another one with a lot of good humor, it is a must watch, even if you've never seen an episode before. It's the ending that gets you in this one. Burgess Meredith plays a scrawny, timid book worm of a husband to an over-bearing wife who dislikes his reading almost as much as she dislikes him. He never has time to himself and then after a hydrogen bomb hits, he suddenly finds that he has, Time Enough At Last. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Masks (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
Wealthy Jason Foster is dying and he invites his greedy heirs to a Mardi Gras party where they must wear the masks he specially had made for them or else be cut off from their inheritance. (51 mins.)
“ People's point of view vary I know, but to me this one can be classified as a comedy because it's got so many knee slappers when the main character rips on his own family. It's about a old and dying multi-millionaire Jason Foster who's family he despises comes to visit and say goodbye before he dies, then to eagerly start diving up the wealth amongst themselves. But he has a little plan for them before he goes off into the night. And it involves Masks. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Walking Distance (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A man makes a time travel to his childhood, when he's just a few miles away from his native town. (51 mins.)
“ Rod Serling's favorite episode and for me it really hits home. This episode to me has the 2nd best closing narrative of any episode, just slightly behind #6 on my list. This episode is about a man who has a nervous breakdown, gets in his car, and heads towards his old hometown where he grew up. And then he finds himself back in time when he was a kid and he desperately wants to talk to his younger version about enjoying his childhood to the fullest. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
On a peaceful suburban street, strange occurrences and mysterious people stoke the residents' paranoia to a disastrous intensity. (51 mins.)
“ Another classic. This episode has a great cast and it just gives you examples of what bad things people can do to each other. There is one big flaw that bugs me though (What took Pete Van Horn so long to get back from one street over?). It also has, in my opinion, the best closing narrative of any episode. It's about a handful of families that live on Maple Street. They hear what sounds like a meteor overhead and then everything stops working - electricity, water, automobiles, etc. Then they try to find out who the monster is, their enemy. Then they realize far too late their worst enemy is themselves. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
Following a frantic phone call about a crashed spaceship, two policeman try and determine who among the passengers of a bus at a snowed-in roadside diner is from another world. (51 mins.)
“ This is a great episode. Your classic "Who is it?" mystery. Basically two cops check out a disturbance that leads them to an isolated diner where a Martian is hiding out amongst some people and they got to find out who it is. Has mystery, suspense, intrigue, even some humor.

I love showing this one to people who've never seen many (or any) Twilight Zone episodes...it gives a good indication of what the TV series is about. The ending has a nice twist that you won't see coming (the first time obviously).

A former #1 favorite of mine, but I had to slot it down over time a little since the meat of the episode was trying to figure out who the Martian was and after the first watching that part of it is forever taken away. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Nick of Time (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
A pair of newlyweds stopping in a small town are trapped by their own superstition when playing a fortune telling machine in a local diner. (51 mins.)
“ A great episode with William Shattner, even better I think than the one most people remember him in "Nightmare at 20,000 feet". It makes a great point at the end. It's about a honeymoon couple that ends up in a small city in Ohio. They go and get something to eat at a little diner that has some fortune telling napkin holders at some of the tables. The man, already being a superstitious lot, tries it out and soon realizes for a penny a question he can gets answers to events in the future. ” - jimdugger
 
9.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Living Doll (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
A frustrated father does battle with his stepdaughter's talking doll, whose vocabulary includes such phrases as "I hate you" and "I'm going to kill you". (51 mins.)
“ This one freaked me out when I was younger. Love the doll's attitude. Nothing like it, except for maybe "Chuckie" lol. Teddy Savalas' (did I spell that right?) role was played brilliantly. Great story, great closing narrative. Teddy plays Eric Strader, a step dad to a Christy, a little girl who's mom buys her a doll named Talking Tina. Eric doesn't treat Christy (or the wife) very well and the doll ends up playing guardian for her and fights back. Sweet episode. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The After Hours (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.5/10 X  
A woman is treated badly by some odd salespeople on an otherwise empty department store floor. (51 mins.)
“ This one spooked me the most when I was younger, especially when one of the mannequins reached out to her. Another episode where there was some eerie moments. Story about a lady who visits a department store to buy a gold thimble. She starts seeing some strange things about the store and some of it's mannequins. She ends up passing out due to shock and upon awakening, she realizes she's been left at the store by herself. Trying to get out she gets into a mind of wills verse the mannequins with an unexpected twist. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The New Exhibit (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.2/10 X  
A wax-museum employee fights to preserve five figures of famous murderers. (51 mins.)
“ Underrated episode in my opinion. The story is very good and those wax figures do look a bit creepy, even now :) If I'm not mistaken, the one named "Andru" was a real person, standing still. It's about a guy named Martin who's been a faithful worker for Ferguson's Wax Museum for many, many years. When the owner decides to retire, Martin cannot bear to see certain wax dummies (Murderer's Row Exhibit - five famous murderers including Jack The Ripper) be destroyed, so he volunteers to keep them in his basement. The urge to continue taking care of these figures ends up destroying his savings, his marriage, and eventually his life. ” - jimdugger
 
12.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
Three U.S. astronauts blast off from Earth on an initial test flight in an experimental rocket-ship... (51 mins.)
“ Here's one that has some eerie moments in it. Written well with good on screen chemistry. There are three astronauts. They used to exist. Their aircraft that carried those three men into space - that also used to exist. It don't any longer. See how three men go off into space and return, only to realize someone or something let them come back by mistake and was coming back to not only get them, but to remove their very existence...one by one. Inspired other episodes and movies. ” - jimdugger
 
13.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: To Serve Man (1962)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
An alien race comes to earth, promising peace and sharing technology. A linguist and his team set out to translate the alien's language, using a book whose title they deduce is "To Serve Man". (51 mins.)
“ A heck of a plot, will catch you off guard the first time you watch it. A classic as well. Kanamits, a race from a different planet far away, comes to earth suddenly, uninvited, bearing gifts of peace and prosperity to the human race. Some say they are parlor tricks. Some say we are looking a gift horse in the mouth. One of the Kanamits leaves a book behind. Hard to decode, they at first lick the title - To Serve Man. They relax a little, hoping the rest of the book offers the same level of reassurance. But they come to see later what the title really means. **Spoiler Coming**

Most soundtracks featuring the Twilight Zone will have this phrase that's uttered in this episode: "It's a cookbook!" :) ” - jimdugger
 
14.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Nightmare at 20,000 Feet (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
A man, newly recovered from a nervous breakdown, becomes convinced that a monster only he sees is damaging the plane he's flying in. (51 mins.)
“ Yet another great sci-fi classic. Ironic, William Shattener (an icon in Star Trek for being a captain of a fleet of people in space), plays a man that is scared of flying! Funny. Many probably would rate this one higher than I did. I think it's good and a classic, but with so many great episodes out there and considering my personal parallels that I like in other episodes it was hard for me to put it in my top 10. Still, you won't be disappointed when you watch it. ” - jimdugger
 
15.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: It's a Good Life (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.0/10 X  
On an isolated family farm, a young boy with vast mental powers, but lacking emotional development, holds his terrified family in thrall to his every juvenile wish. (51 mins.)
“ Another classic. Most people would probably put this in their top five, but to me there's so many other good episodes it does make it hard for me to have this one a little way's down. They made a sequel to this on one of the 80's TZ episodes called "It's still a good life". It's about a little boy named Anthony Freemont. At an early age he realizes he can make things come true, just by using his mind. He isolates the city he lives in and the people that are left are pitted against him for the right to survival. ” - jimdugger
 
16.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Barbara Jean Trenton is a faded film star who lives in the past by constantly re-watching her old movies instead of moving on with her life, so her associates try to lure her out of her self-imposed isolation. (51 mins.)
“ This one appeals to me on certain levels because the main character of the story is much like myself in some ways. Barbara Jean Trenton, a movie star from another era, shuts herself off from the rest of the world because she doesn't like the way the world is becoming. She watches films of herself made 15, 20, 25 years ago. At times I find myself doing this with the Twilight Zone series (lol). Her friends (all two of them) try to help her out but after some swing and misses, she deep down believes she can go back to those days if she wishes real, real hard. Can her wish come true? ” - jimdugger
 
17.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Mr. Dingle, the Strong (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
A timid vacuum-cleaner salesman is given the strength of 300 men by some experimenting aliens. (51 mins.)
“ I think Burgess Meredith was underrated in this one. Another episode with a great cast and some rather hilarious moments. How they ripped on his character near the end when the two species of aliens met was classic!

Basically Burgess plays a character named Luther Dingle, pretty much what we call today a "loser" (lol). These Martians, as an experiment, makes him 300 times stronger than normal human beings. The results crack me up.

They end up taking the powers away, but then some Venetians (From Venus) come in, asking the Martians if they know any sub-mental human species to use as an experiment. They go "That one over there, named Dingle. He's definitely sub-physical, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if he's sub-mental too"....haaaaa! ” - jimdugger
 
18.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Dummy (1962)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.9/10 X  
Ventriloquist Jerry Etherson is convinced that his dummy, Willie, is alive and evil. He locks Willie in a trunk and makes plans for a new act with a new dummy. Too bad he didn't clear those plans with Willie first. (51 mins.)
“ The dummy in this episode is still one of the more eeriest of the bunch. Great cast and plot, It's a great re-watch. A ventriloquist is having a crazy obsession that he is battling a dummy. Or is it crazy? I viewed this episode with audio commentary by Cliff Robertson, the main character. Very intriguing some of the things he said. ” - jimdugger
 
19.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
An army major awakens in a small room with no idea of who he is or how he got there. He finds four other people in the same room, and they all begin to question how they each arrived there, and more importantly, how to escape. (51 mins.)
“ If you like episodes where you try to figure out the plot before it ends, then you'll like this one. For me this solid episode was well written. Later a movie was made based off the premise of this show, though I can't think of the name at this moment. This guy (An Army Major) wakes up and realizes he's in this room with a clown, a bag-piper, a hobo, and a ballet dancer. No reason, no way out, no explanation. Can they find the exit? What's outside that exit? ” - jimdugger
 
20.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Hitch-Hiker (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.4/10 X  
A young woman driving cross country becomes frantic when she keeps passing the same man on the side of the road. No matter how fast she drives the man is always up ahead, hitching her for a ride. (51 mins.)
“ This is another classic that many people remember. It's a bit eerie and the ending will surprise you. Nan Adams is taking a trip to California from Pennsylvania via automobile and after a near crash due to a blowout, she starts seeing this hitchhiker everywhere she goes, no matter how fast she is going. Can she make it before he catches up to her? "You going, my way?" :) ” - jimdugger
 
21.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Shelter (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.6/10 X  
A suburban dinner party is interrupted by a bulletin warning of an impending nuclear attack. As the neighbors scramble to prepare themselves, they turn against the one family that installed a permanent bomb shelter. (51 mins.)
“ Much like "The Monsters are due on Maple Street", this is a great example of how people are and how they react when things get bad. Well written and performed great, it's an eye opener. I had a neighbor years ago that reminds me of one of the main character's neighbor as he was described on what he would do to stay alive - "He would claw you to pieces just for the privilege" (lol).

A story about a doctor, who was well loved and respected by his neighbors at a surprise birthday party in his honor. They tease him about his bomb shelter - the noise in the middle of the night, the constant truck traffic, and such for something he may never use. Then news spreads about a possible bomb headed near them and the neighbors slowly realize their salvation may lie in his bomb shelter. The things they do to rationalize each neighbor's right for survival ends up being almost as bad as the bomb itself. ” - jimdugger
 
22.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Judgment Night (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
It's 1942, and a man finds himself on a ship in the Atlantic, not knowing who he is, nor how he got there. He does know the ship will soon be attacked by a German U-boat. (51 mins.)
“ If you like those mysteries involving reoccurring nightmares, then this one is for you. It involves a German submarine commander, who inexplicably finds himself on this doomed British vessel who's been separated from their convoy due to a thick fog. He doesn't remember getting on the ship or much of anything else, but then he slowly remembers clues about his origin and why he's on that vessel. ” - jimdugger
 
23.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Third from the Sun (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
Two families of Government employees plan to steal a spaceship and travel to another planet just prior to a nuclear war. They must also deal with a stooge who wants to stop them. (51 mins.)
“ A real good episode with a little twist in the end that you probably won't see coming, it holds up well. It's about a family, the husband in particular, on the eve of an all-out nuclear war he knows will happen in 48 hours or less. He teams up with a pilot of an experimental aircraft (that's capable of going to another planet) to bribe and plan their escape to another planet miles away that might hold salvation for both their families. ” - jimdugger
 
24.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Obsolete Man (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.8/10 X  
In a future totalitarian society, a librarian is declared obsolete and sentenced to death. (51 mins.)
“ Another good episode starring the late Mr. Burgess Meredith. Three of his 4 episodes are in my top 25. This particular episode he's a condemned man named Mr. Wordsworth in a futuristic episode of a country who eliminates people if they are deemed "obsolete". He is a librarian in a time where books were outlawed. He gets to basically choose his poison, but he's got an Ace up his sleeve as he tries to make his point that no man is...obsolete. ” - jimdugger
 
25.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Eye of the Beholder (1960)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 9.2/10 X  
A young woman lying in a hospital bed, her head wrapped in bandages, awaits the outcome of a surgical procedure performed by the State in a last-ditch attempt to make her look "normal". (51 mins.)
“ Watching this episode as I type in my comments (lol). It's about a lady named Janet Tyler in a hospital who is wrapped in bandages, awaiting her fate after the 11th and last attempt to make her not look ugly. If I was in this predicament they'd have exterminated me long ago (not lol). In this place people who don't look normal are separated from those that are ugly.

A classic episode that has a superb closing narrative, this one is an absolute gem for first time watchers. Highly recommended but after the first initial watch, it settles in to a more moderate but still very good episode. Even so, it still is a nice re-watch after knowing what you know. Rod Serling hits the nail on the head with this one. ” - jimdugger
 
26.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: A Game of Pool (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A frustrated pool champ has beaten everyone. Everyone except one man; the legend, Fats Brown. Brown is dead, and the champ can only curse his name. But guess who just walked in. (51 mins.)
“ A good episode starring two pool players. One is the current pool champ, the other is a ghost of a past pool champion (the best still most still consider). The current one (Jesse Cardiff) who is annoyed by the constant stories of the past champion (Fats Brown) and thinks he would have beaten the "unbeatable" past champion and calls him out one lonely night at a pool hall by himself and Fats answers the challenge!

During the episode there is a lot of very interesting dialog about pool, sports, and life and I think people should watch it, if for anything, just to listen to them talk and watch this classic struggle between the young and energetic vs the older but more experienced challenger. ” - jimdugger
 
27.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Bard (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
Julius Moomer, a talentless self-promoting hack who dreams of becoming a successful television writer... (51 mins.)
“ Not only this one is an acquired taste, but to me it's the little things this show does that is so cool. For example, I'm also a fan of the Rocky movies. In the beginning the main character is a wanna-be writer. He explains a plot to his agent that is almost identical to Rocky. A couple of other plots are eerily similar to other movies I've watched. Also, Burt Reynolds plays a character called "Rocky Rhodes", who gets "socked" by another character. And many people don't know this, but it was Burt Reynolds that the movie execs wanted to originally play Rocky. Glad Sylvester Stallone held out for that role himself, but the coincidences can't be ignored ;) ” - jimdugger
 
28.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: A Kind of a Stopwatch (1963)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.7/10 X  
A man is given a stopwatch that halts time. (51 mins.)
“ This one always had a certain type of appeal to me. Is it because the main character can stop time with a stopwatch? Or was it because of I can relate to the reactions McNulty got from others? (Ha). Maybe neither, maybe a little of both perhaps. But this one is a classic and it has some absolute laugh out loud moments! ” - jimdugger
 
29.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.4/10 X  
Horace Ford longs for his childhood which was not as idyllic as he remembers it. (51 mins.)
“ This one's an acquired taste. At first I was put off by the Horace Ford character - he acted goofy for an adult. But when I realized that this episode was about a guy who loved his childhood days so much, he started acting and talking like a kid. Now I cherish those moments (lol). This one also hits home with me, but I can see why some people may not like this one.

Horace Ford is a guy who loves his childhood time, but he forgets to look in a mirror every now and then to remind himself those days are long gone. He gets trapped in this reoccurring set of events that eventually brings out the truth he's hidden to himself about those days of yesteryear. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Midnight Sun (1961)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.7/10 X  
When the Earth falls out of orbit, two women try to cope with increasingly oppressive heat in a nearly abandoned city. (51 mins.)
“ An episode that's actually two stories in one, both with parallel consequences. It stars two ladies that live in New York City that are doomed living during a slow but agonizing death during where the world is getting hotter moment by moment as the Earth slowly and methodically gets closer and closer to the sun.

Play close attention to the "death" scene by one of the ladies...in my opinion one of the worst in cinema history (lol). ” - jimdugger
 
31.
The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: The Lonely (1959)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A convict, living alone on an asteroid, receives from the police a realistic woman-robot. (51 mins.)
“ A good episode featuring the late Jack Warden. He plays a prisoner on what I assume is a futuristic world where the incarcerated are isolated by themselves on asteroids where every three months a supply ship comes by for restocking purposes.

It explains on how lonely he is, what he does to keep occupied, and how he looks forward to those supply ships that give him a brief injection of companionship. The head of a certain supply ship takes pity on him and smuggles to him a female robot to keep him company. At first he resists, but her humanlike appearance slowly wins him over and he is happy...until he has to go back home. ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Caesar and Me (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
When Irish ventriloquist Jonathan West cannot find any work, his dummy Caesar suggests that he turn to robbery. (51 mins.)
“ Another episode where they use that same dummy as before on...well, "The Dummy" lol. This time instead of being eerie, he has a rapport with a Mr. Johnathon West whom he lures to America from Ireland for a promise of a better life.

But the dummy (Caesar) gets tired of his failures and tells Johnathon that he's calling the shots where he begins to lead a life of crime. Pay special attention to the landlord's niece Susan, who belittles Johnathon and gets in a few good funny rips on him :) ” - jimdugger

The Twilight Zone (1959 TV Series)
Episode: Stopover in a Quiet Town (1964)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.3/10 X  
A hung-over couple awaken to find themselves not only in a strange house, but in a deserted town, where nothing is as it should be. (51 mins.)
“ A good episode that some may put in their top 10. It's about a couple from New York who wake up one morning after driving home from a party to find themselves in a strange bedroom. Then they find out gradually their in a strange house, neighborhood, and town.

Nobody is around, everything seems to be fake, and occasionally they hear laughter of a kid but can never pin-point where it's coming from. It's eerily quiet, and nothing makes sense. I think it's cool when they try to re-create their blank spot between what happened after they left the party and how they woke up, fully clothed in no harm, alone in a strange place.

They may not like what they find out ;)

When three dum-dum crooks get ahold of a camera that takes pictures of the future, they set out to make a quick fortune with their new toy. (51 mins.)
“ This one is another episode which portrays the stuff that many good episodes have: Little Black Magic, Comedy, and it gets to the point quickly so there can be some time devoted the main object in point - which in this case was the camera. This camera once the picture is taken, it develops a quick picture of something that is going to happen like 10 seconds in the future. Kind of like getting a Polaroid...ahead of it's time, I'll tell you the truth.

One thing thought I'm not sure I have more awe for is either the camera taking pictures of something that is going to happen in the very near future, or that their first couple pictures taken (to find out this fact) was at the exact time where something in the near future was going to happen (ha). I mean, what were the odds of them taking pictures at some other random spot at the same time? They weren't like partially off or anything, I mean dead-on center! lol ” - jimdugger

For a group of futuristic 1990's colony that was obviously good at making a spaceship and travelling millions of miles and landing, they are absolutely horrible at any pre-planning skills (ha). Didn't anyone realize that they were moving to a place that had no night, was always terribly hot, had no raw materials, and couldn't put any roots in that soil?

They are currently lead around by the nose by a guy named Captain Benteen, who loved power as much as Picasso loved paint! They make contact with Earth and they send a message that they are sending a ship back to pick them up and take them back.
