I think the kids in ET mimic the TZ theme when they go out into the yard after Elliott tells them he saw something out back. That was a year and a half earlier, in '82.

You RULE, Dan!! :)


Cultural osmosis has always played a part in spreading TV/film references throughout the decades. I knew the term “the Twilight Zone” and its general meaning wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy before I EVER watched an episode. (Saw my first marathon at twelve I think.). I think I even knew the name Rod Serling beforehand too.
Pinky, are you pondering what I’m pondering?

I think so, Brain, but if we didn’t have ears, wouldn’t we sort of look like weasels?

A very good edit of all the verses sung in "Come Wander With Me":



There's always been versions floating around but none complete like this one. Pretty sweet! It's a great episode. The music, the brooding atmosphere. Bonnie Beecher gives a terrific performance. Such a hauntingly beautiful song. One of my favorites, yadda yadda yadda. ;)

Fun fact: this was the final episode to be filmed. "The Bewitchin' Pool" was the last to broadcast.

And it's kind of lonely being the only TZ fan able to figure out the PLOT of that episode.
Having to explain it to all the other fans every single time gets sort of old after a while. :(

Are you sure? you don't seem to be right very often.
