It was due to creator Rod Sterling's excessive smoking, that he was often seen with a cigarette during the introduction. Also, since one of the show's sponsors was the Liggett & Myers tobacco company, Serling served as an on-screen spokesman for their product, Chesterfield cigarettes, during his "tune in next week" spot at the end of each episode. The American Tobacco Co., a later sponsor, insisted that he always be seen with a cigarette, although Serling refused to plug their brand (Pall Mall) on screen. See more »

Whatever incantation, whatever form, whatever decade, this show has managed to intrigue and defy logic with its use of imaginary story lines and ideas, mixing a palate of intrigue and genius to allow the common viewer to become engrossed in the weirdest television has to offer. While the original series was cheesy at some points, this show was always different, always something to look forward to in regards to the eeriness it created. Rod Serling helped usher in a generation of paranoia and science fiction thanks to this groundbreaking show, and I'm thankful for this. I could only imagine what the world would be like if all we had were terrible dramas and average sitcoms filling the airwaves. This show will rank as one of the best in my book, no matter what people say.
