A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
An updated version of the famous 1960's TV series created by Rod Serling. Each week presents one to three tales about some unusual situation that turns out to be even more unusual than initially suspected. Whether the tone of the story is horror, suspense or humor, there is always a surprise twist at the end. Written by

Showrunner Philip DeGuere Jr. shared the same agent as fantasy writer, George R.R. Martin. The agent provided a copy of Martin's 4th novel, The Armageddon Rag, a rock 'n roll dark fantasy, to DeGuere because he was a Grateful Dead fan. DeGuere liked the novel so much that he planned to write and direct an adaptation but the novel failed in sales. DeGuere and Martin stayed friends and DeGuere recruited Martin for his first Hollywood position as a staff writer in this Twilight Zone reboot. See more »
The newest version of the Twilight Zone that premiered in September, 2002, makes me realize just how good the 1985 series was. They were so good, in fact, I still remember some of my favourite episodes: the relative of JFK who went back in time and ends up stopping the assassination, the Viet Nam vet whose afraid to go to sleep, the man who must become 'invisible' for one year....ah, those were the days. I was excited a few years back to see them running in syndication only to realize that the episodes had been chopped down and key scenes removed (to fit into a half hour block instead of an hour). This made me stop watching them. I hope that CBS will release the full original uncut 1985 Twilight Zone on DVD someday, but it's probably going to be a long wait.
