This is the best twilight zone episode ever
30 September 2018 | by datsafactSee all my reviews

My personal favorite because it did not take itself too seriously like previous episodes. You almost feel sorry for poor Wally Cox because we look at computers as being smart and this machine made him look foolish. This type of situation exist in the world today.
