The 33 Year Old Rod Serling
20 October 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Rod Serling wrote the sixth episode in this series titled 'The Time Element' which was aired on the 10th November 1958. It provided a launchpad for his subsequent series, 'The Twilight Zone', the following year. It was about a man who dreamt that he was in Hawaii just before the bombing of Pearl Harbour and is compelled to warn the marines there of an impending attack. Too busy enjoying themselves, the uninterested recipients come face to face with their destiny.
