Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: In The Twilight Zone Edition


This week, I was pleasantly surprised to find one of my comics to be littered with references to several episodes of the classic Twilight Zone, including ‘Nightmare at 20,000 Feet’, ‘Twenty-Two’ and ‘The Odyssey of Flight 33.’  As a long-time fan of the Zone (I can often quote episode, season and production number, though not with the alacrity that I could at age 17), I was happy to see a reminder that Rod Serling’s masterwork is still remembered in this age of irony and jump-scares.  Indeed, the amount of suspense and terror in even a not-so-iconic episode (take, for example, the Lee Marvin showcase “The Grave”) is equal to many of the lesser fright-fests seen in some of today’s television and movies.  Also, get off my lawn, rotten kids!  In any case, the hundred-fifty-six episodes contain some scary $#!+, which leads us to today’s fifth-dimensional query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) thinks it may be a toss-up between poor Henry Bemis and Bob Wilson’s midair breakdown and hallucination, but there are candidates aplenty, asking: What’s the most frightening moment in Twilight Zone history in your mind?
