The Twilight Zone is a 1959-1964 TV show. L. Roy Aiken writes:[1]

This article is somewhat ironic considering how many times they've tried to revive the *Twilight Zone* as a series. It not only fails, but fails miserably every time. The writers simply can't compete with the ghosts of Rod Serling, Charles Beaumont, Richard Matheson and Earl Hamner (a.k.a. "John-Boy Walton" and author of "The Hunt"), et al. For all our phony cultural piousness and "political correctness," writing a good morality tale (which was what most TZ stories essentially were) seems impossible.
