Video Revue: Podcast From Another Dimension!

You're listening to a podcast. A podcast not only of sight and sound, but of mind...

Hmm. Doesn't have quite the same ring to it. This week, Johnny and I (along with a special guest!) discuss some of our favorite episodes of the iconic science fiction show The Twilight Zone. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the show's premiere, and it's amazing how well the show has held up. Even today, you can start humming the theme song when something weird happens and people know what it means.

As always, you can find us on iTunes or Podshow.

There were 156 episodes in the series' five-year run; we discuss just 18. If we forgot one of your favorites, let us know! Also, next week is our discussion on horror movie hosts. We're going to discuss MST3K and some of the Chicago horror hosts. If you'd like us to talk about your favorite, just let us know. We'd love to hear from you. Our email address is

Question for the week: Why do you think the show is still so popular, half a century after it first appeared?
