Quotes

Narrator: [closing narration for "The Last Defender of Camelot"] Once upon a time, there was a realm of myth and magic-a high, bright dream that shimmered briefly and then was gone, leaving only memories and one ageless, weary, slightly tarnished hero who proved at last that wisdom and valor go hand in hand, on Earth, in Camelot, and... in the Twilight Zone.

A town of aliens/And a passing of the torch!
11 April 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This was the last and final episode of season one of "The New Twilight Zone" on CBS it ended the 1985-86 season number 24 had two segments titled "A Day in Beaumont" and "The Last Defender of Camelot". And both had themes of sci-fi and fantasy, blended with strange happenings of transformation and crazy endings.

First "A Day in Beaumont" set in 1955 in a desert community a young couple a scientist man and his to be wife on one bright day in the bright sky see a flying saucer, and when landing strange creature type aliens that look like monsters appear. Once reported to the locals no one believes them, that's the catch. As it turns out this city is one of transformation as underneath the skin you will have creature bones and saucer blood! As this will be an ongoing thing for new residents who come thru.

Second up is "The Last Defender of Camelot" set in then modern day 1986 London this is clearly a sci-fi fantasy tale involving magic, power, spells, and mid evil fighting. The legend Lancelot is challenged by his rival enchantress Morgan Le Fay and the plan is to meet with Merlin with the plan being to restore Camelot. And this is a fight and magical battle to the end a changing of the guard!
