Storyline

A man finds himself walking down a country road, not knowing where he is or, for that matter, who he is. He comes across a diner with a jukebox blaring and hot coffee on the stove - only there is no one there. A little further down the road he come to the picturesque town of Oakwood - and finds that it too seems to be deserted. The only sounds he hears are the clock tower in the town square and a a public pay telephone ringing. At the local movie theater, an ad for Battle Hymn (1957) leads him to believe he's in the Air Force. Despite no one being around, he can't shake off the feeling that he's being watched......

Trivia

Although this was the first aired episode of Twilight Zone (1959), it is not the first one written. Rod Serling wrote an episode called "The Happy Place", which was rejected because of its subject matter (a society where people were executed when they turned 60), which was considered too depressing.

Mike Ferris (Earl Holliman) finds himself alone in the small Oakwood town and without recollection about his name, where he is or who he is. Mike wanders through the town trying to find a living soul. The tension increases and Mike has a break down.

"Where Is Everybody?" is the engaging first episode of "The Twilight Zone" and part of my childhood. The plot is intriguing and the despair of Mike reaches the limit with the solitude. Out of the blue, there is a plausible explanation of what has happened to him considering that this is a 1959 show. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Além da Imaginação - Where Is Everybody?" ("Beyond Imagination - Where Is Everybody?")
