I usually don't look to television for inspiration for my entries but....... Several days ago, while searching for something on the CBS website, I discovered that many of the original episodes of The Twilight Zone were online at the click of the mouse. Tonight, I watched the very first episode, entitled, Where Is Everybody? Loneliness is a problem many struggle with, including a number of prominent Bible characters. This broadcast put it into perspective with an unexpected twist. Television in this century continues to devolve into one mindless reality or game show after another. Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, was the master of subtlety and could make your heart race without resorting to slashing and maiming. If you have twenty-five minutes and are yearning for some black-and-white television, Where Is Everybody? can be accessed by clicking on the link below: http://www.cbs.com/classics/the_twilight_zone/video/video.php?cid=621774886&pid=SbGNJ68fqyNniVIv8IyDAMY_7GLg2dgS&play=true
Other episodes can easily be found at www.cbs.com.
You've been warned!
