5:30 P.M. Quitting time at the plant. Time for supper now. Time for families. Time for a cool drink on a porch. Time for the quiet rustle of leaf-laden trees that screen out the moon. And underneath it all, behind the eyes of the men, hanging invisable over the summer night, is a horror without words. For this is the stillness before storm. This is the eve of the end.

I happily enjoyed a wonderful Twilight Zone marathon on the SyFy Channel this New year's weekend. Of all the wonderful shows I had the pleasure of seeing, this one stands out above many others. As is often the case with this wonderful series, Rod Serling took a simple story and turned it into a thinking man's thriller.
The story tells of two men who work at a government space facility. When they discover that the world as they know it is coming to an end, they decide to steal a spaceship to help their families escape to safety. What brings the story beyond the mundane is a classic "twist" ending that takes most viewers by surprise. I loved the episode and believe most other viewers will also. Give it a try, I'm sure you'll be happy you did!
