Rod Serling on Kamikazes | Blank on Blank | PBS Digital Studios



Published on May 24, 2016 ”The most unfettered imagination belongs to young people, and they don’t walk through life; they fly” - Rod Serling in 1963. If you've never seen the Twilight Zone, you're missing what might be one of the smartest and most thought-provoking television series of all-time. On the surface, it mimicked ordinary life. The pace was ordinary until challenges to the deepest fears and uncertainties that lurk inside the mind took hold. The series ran from 1959-64 and was created by Rod Serling. The show was mesmerizing audiences across the U.S. when he was interviewed for Australian radio by Binny Lum. We came across this conversation in Australia's National Film and Sound Archive and it's one of those delightful back and forths that makes you stop and listen. Serling jumps into the conversation, there's little apprehension, and suddenly he takes you on a journey thinking about your own past and childhood, and the ultimate realization that "you simply cannot go home again."

I used to watch that show avidly, it was a quite low budget affair, but boy was it good. Rod Serling always introduced each episode, and they covered just about anything of imagination... or who knows? maybe not imagined....


I even remember a kind of Matrixy episode.

May not have been as low budget as you think - There were a lot of well known actors in the series - well known writers besides Rod Serling wrote many of the episodes - And many up and coming actors got an early start there - Remember at least one episode with William Shatner [Captain Kirk in Star Trek] - even when young he showed potential.

Found a new one which is Twilight Zone like with a twist - some of the shows in each episode [five different stories per episode] were supposedly based upon real events - And you are supposed to decide which were real and which were fiction.
At the end of each weekly episode they reveal which were based upon true events and whcih were fiction. It was hosted through several seasons by Jonathan Frakes [Riker in Star Trek the next generation] who seemed to really enjoy the show himself.
