‘The Twilight Zone’: All the Easter Eggs and References in ‘The Comedian’ and ’Nightmare at 30,000 Feet’

‘The Twilight Zone’: All the Easter Eggs and References in ‘The Comedian’ and ’Nightmare at 30,000 Feet’
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “The Twilight Zone” Episode 1, “The Comedian,” and Episode 2, “Nightmare at 30,000 Feet.”]

CBS All Access’ reimagining of “The Twilight Zone” delivers true anthology storytelling in that each episode is a standalone plot than can be enjoyed all by itself. But for “Twilight Zone” diehards, the reboot also has fun paying homage to Rod Serling’s classic series through visual, character, or narrative references. They’re not only an entertaining way to honor the show’s roots, but each nod to the past also creates a connection to the present — as if they all exist in the same universe, or zone.

The new “Twilight Zone” also adds to the mythology with its own references within Jordan Peele’s rebooted universe, creating new connections that knit the episodes together in spirit.

“We’ll always try to integrate the world as much as possible, both with the original series and with our own series

Extended Trailer for Jordan Peele's The Twilight Zone Teases Several Episodes

We’ve got a new extended trailer for you to watch for Jordan Peele’s revival of The Twilight Zone. While I liked what I saw in the promo spots for "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet" and "The Comedian," this new trailer offers us a look at all the other episodes that the first season of the new series will entail. Personally, I like what I’m seeing!

The Twilight Zone is one of the greatest shows ever created, and while this revival won’t be as good as the original, it still looks like a solid series that will entertain and tell some interesting stories. I’m curious to see how this turns out.

You’ll also see many of the cast members in the series that includes Greg Kinnear, Kumail Nanjiani, Seth Rogen, John Cho, Ike Barinholtz, Taissa Farmiga, Ginnifer Goodwin, Luke Kirby, Sanaa Lathan, Adam Scott, Rhea Seehorn, Alison Tolman,

The Twilight Zone Play: How The Stories Were Selected

Chris Longo Mar 16, 2019

The playwright behind The Twilight Zone's stage adaptation whittled down the iconic series into eight carefully chosen stories.

The inescapable sights and sounds of The Twilight Zone are cherished and tightly protected intellectual property. Some 60 years after Rod Serling took us into the fifth dimension, CBS is rightfully selective about who is granted licence to a crown jewel of sci-fi and fantasy storytelling. We’ll soon find out if Jordan Peele is a worthy steward on the television side with his CBS All-Access reboot. When it came to securing the rights for a stage adaptation, it took producer Ron Fogelman nearly three years to convince CBS they had the right plan in place to do the source material justice.

Though a departure from the usual fare at London’s historic Almeida Theatre, the venue took a chance on The Twilight Zone, which opened in December 2017, and

'Glass' Threepeats at #1 Over Dismal Super Bowl Weekend

'Glass' Threepeats at #1 Over Dismal Super Bowl Weekend
It was an incredibly soft start to the February box office with the top 12 grossing just a combined $55.4 million. You'd have to go back to the first weekend in September 2017 to find a worse performance from the top twelve films. The top of the box office was a repeat from the last three weekends with Glass taking the top spot while Sony's Miss Bala debuted in third place. Overall, the weekend is expected to be the worst Super Bowl weekend at the box office since 2000 when Destination Films's Eye of the Beholder starring Ashley Judd and Ewan McGregor topped the box office. Universal's Glass topped the weekend box office for a third straight week, bringing in an estimated $9.5 million, pushing the film's domestic gross over $88 million. Internationally the film added $12.2 million this weekend from 54 markets, for an overseas cume that now totals over $110 million and a global tally just shy of $200 million.

‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket

‘Twin Peaks’: For $2,000, You Can Own Laura Palmer’s Casket
Given the sheer number of costume pieces, props, and other slices of production design that go into the average film/TV production, it’s no surprise that it takes decades for all that memorabilia to become available to the public.

One such opportunity is happening next month, when an upcoming Prop Store auction will see the release of a number of classic series’ set dressing to the highest bidders. Among the wide, insane variety of options are a few items from the original “Twin Peaks” run. The starting bid for Laura Palmer’s casket is $1,000 (the estimate is around double that), but other random items like the signage from the Great Northern Hotel runs a little cheaper.

To begin to summarize the sheer quantity of random items as part of this auction is an impossible task, but some of the items with the highest opening bids are pretty recognizable. An

Inside the Tour That Made Metallica Megastars

Inside the Tour That Made Metallica Megastars
When Lars Ulrich reflects on Metallica’s massive Damaged Justice tour now, he marvels that they were able to pull it off at all. “No band as extreme as ours had ever done a full arena tour,” he says. “So it was definitely a crapshoot, and it paid off.”

“Those were the years that we proved ourselves,” Jason Newsted, the band’s bassist at the time, says. “We were firing on all cylinders. Once the ‘One’ video came out, we were ready for it and the world was ready for Metallica.

Review: Metallica’s Breakthrough LP ‘…And Justice For All’ Gets A Revealing Deep-Reissue

Metallica became a force to be reckoned with on … And Justice for All, their fourth album and first after the death of bassist Cliff Burton. On their three previous LPs, they’d laid the groundwork for thrash metal, introduced melody and catchiness to the genre and built a following through relentless touring. If their third album, 1986’s Master of Puppets, was the apotheosis of their formative, underground years, then Justice, released two years later, ushered in a new, mainstream era for the band.

The Twilight Zone Play Is Moving To London’s West End, Cast Announced

Chris Longo Feb 12, 2019

After a successful first run, The Twilight Zone play is set to return in 2019.

It’s a good time to be in The Twilight Zone.

Jordan Peele’s small screen revival is coming to CBS All Access with an all-star cast, and now after a successful first run, a stage adaptation of Rod Serling’s iconic anthology series will transfer to London’s prestigious West End in 2019.

The Twilight Zone premiered in 2017 at London’s Almeida Theatre. It’ll move over to the West End’s Ambassadors Theatre beginning on March 4, 2019. The stage production was adapted by Anne Washburn (Mr. Burns: A Post Electric Play), who took eight stories from Twilight Zone writers Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont, and Richard Matheson and weaved them into a two-act play. Richard Jones, who directed the first run, will return.

The play featured takes on classic episodes like “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up?

Review: ‘Blackstar’ Saxist Donny McCaslin Fully Embraces Art Pop on ‘Blow.’

Donny McCaslin’s career will forever be divided into two distinct eras: before Blackstar and after. David Bowie famously recruited the jazz saxophonist and his band after catching them at New York’s 55 Bar in 2014, and they would end up backing the icon throughout his final album. Though McCaslin already had about three decades of professional experience up to that point, for many listeners, he registered as an emerging star.

By that logic, Blow. almost seems like a new debut for the 51-year-old. Its largely instrumental predecessor, 2016’s Beyond Now,

Metallica’s ‘And Justice for All’: What Happened to the Bass?

“I was so in the dirt,” former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted has said of how he felt when his first full-length with the group, … And Justice for All, came out. “I was so disappointed when I heard the final mix. I basically blocked it out, like people do with shit.”

The album, which turns 30 this year, is one of Metallica’s greatest masterworks. Its songs are lengthy, nuanced statements on political devolution (the title track and “Eye of the Beholder”), the atrocities of war (the single “One”) and dealing badly

Arizona Foundation For Women To Honor Ashley Judd

Arizona Foundation for Women has selected two-time Golden Globe nominated actress, humanitarian and author Ashley Judd, as its 2018 Sandra Day O’Connor Lifetime Achievement Award Honoree.

Ms. Judd is known for her roles in highly successful movies such as Kiss the Girls, Eye of the Beholder, Someone Like You, and Double Jeopardy. And most notably, Arizona Foundation for Women is recognizing Ms. Judd for her philanthropic and activist work around women’s health, rights and equality, and helping those living with AIDS around the world.

“Ms. Judd brings to light in her work around women’s issues a topic many prefer to keep in the dark, deny, block out, ignore or simply are not aware of,” says Arizona Foundation for Women CEO Mesha Davis. “It’s hard to hear of a child, woman, or anyone, being sexually exploited or abused, let alone talk about it openly. We need dedicated individuals like Ms.

‘Heroes of the Monkey Tavern’ Review (Nintendo Switch)

  • Nerdly
What will gradually dawn on you about Heroes of the Monkey Tavern is what it doesn’t contain. No item wear; no exterior environments (in fact, very little variation in environments at all); no ammo counters; no gameplay variation; and no real story to speak of. It opens with a static painting of the titular tavern. Your silhouetted heroes are approached by a stranger, who speaks of a dungeon with untold treasures. Off you go, into the darkness.

Once down there, you will work your way up through a series of levels – seven floors and a boss level, all told – fighting a generic selection of fantasy enemies: orcs, skeletons, mummies, goblins etc. Your party is yours to choose, and once again the options are fantasy staples: warrior, ranger, priest, blah. Torchlight flickers on brownstone walls; competent, moody music summons hints of Howard Shore’s Two Towers score; secret walls slide

‘Demon Gaze II’ Review (PS4)

  • Nerdly
In Demon Gaze II, players take on the role of a mysterious, amnesiac hero who awakens in the bowels of the autonomous, steampunk inspired city of Asteria. Mysteriously lost in a cellar filled with steaming brass pipes and adorned with valves and levers, he or she has no choice but to follow the only people that seem to offer a helping hand.

What begins as a lengthy introduction to one character after another, a recap of the events in the original Demons Gaze and an overview of the world eventually spins out into a long and deep campaign lasting more than thirty hours, for those who want to experience it. Dialogue is partially voiced and characters are presented as largely static anime characters who are almost always dressed in resplendent garb that strains under the weight of their unnaturally large bosoms (for the female character, at least.)

8 ways The Twilight Zone influenced modern TV and film

Louisa Mellor Nov 25, 2017

The Twilight Zone casts a long shadow over today’s film and TV. We salute the legacy left by Rod Serling’s seminal series…

“Damn near immortal” is how Stephen King described The Twilight Zone in his 1981 study of creepy fiction Danse Macabre, and who could argue with that. Like any decent horror monster, Rod Serling’s 1960s anthology series keeps coming back from the grave. Only last week it was announced that CBS is planning to resurrect its award-winning show once again. The new series will be the latest of several revivals over the decades, including an upcoming stage production set to enjoy its world premiere at London’s Almeida Theatre this December.

Mother!, The Wicker Man, and All the Other Movies With "F" CinemaScores

  • BuzzSugar
Darren Aronofsky's mother!, with its lowercase title and exclamation point, was always going to push the envelope. The disturbingly vague trailer alone was hint enough that the Jennifer Lawrence-led film was not Hollywood's average horror entry. As a result, many of the scary movie fans who flocked to theaters left disappointed, confused, or a mixture of both. The backlash to the film has been so strong that Paramount actually released a statement defending Aronofsky's "audacious and brave" work. Unfortunately it wasn't enough to keep mother! from pulling in a shockingly bad "F" rating on poll-based website CinemaScore (the worst score that can be given by audiences). Mother! certainly isn't the first movie to land on CinemaScore's "F" list, but until now, the complete list had yet to be published. Vulture set out to discover the full list of titles by speaking to CinemaScore research analyst Harold Mintz. He
