The episode Third from the Sun is absolutely amazing to watch. The twist ending has to be one of the best ever used during the series five season run. Fritz Weaver does amazing job as the main character in the episode. Edward Andrews has to be one of the creepiest villains ever in the Twilight Zone, he does a great job. You should also pay close attention to the amazing camera angles used by director Richard L. Bare. I highly recommend it to everyone who wants to get into The Twilight Zone and also those who are already fans but have not had the chance to see this great episode.
