Must See For "Twilight Zone" Fans.
24 August 2013 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Originally aired as a part of the "American Masters" series on PBS; I haven't seen much of that show, but this episode was included on "The Twilight Zone" DVD set on Season Five, so may be the most viewed installment as a result.

Takes a look at Rod's whole life, which was cut short at the age of 50. Rod Serling would become a fast-rising writer in Hollywood, who had many scripts adapted for live theater broadcasts, and he won many different awards, but of course will be remembered mostly for "The Twilight Zone". Many interviews are conducted, some with stars now deceased like John Frankenheimer and Jack Klugman, both of whom have interesting things to say. Worth a look.
