3x13 "Believis or Not"




Boo! It’s a word designed to scare… or to heckle a comedian. Somehow both definitions apply this week as Craig tackles his ultimate fear by watching two notoriously awful Twilight Zone comedies (“Mr. Bevis” and “Cavender is Coming”), and honestly, what’s more terrifying than that? It’s a Hallowe’en episode with a smile. Oh wait, that’s not a smile…. that’s a frozen mask of abject terror. Boo!

3x12 "Hit Me with Your Best Slot"




This week, Craig spins the cosmic roulette wheel in honor of the Twilight Zone classics “The Fever” and “The Prime Mover” while self-medicating an ongoing sinus malfunction with a single-malt Scotch. Take my advice and roll the dice, baby.

3x11 "We All Scream for Jet Stream"




Check your bags and try to avoid a TSA cavity search as you board tonight’s double-feature flight into the unknown. Craig takes the yoke and performs aerial maneuvers over, under and through the classic Twilight Zone episodes “The Last Flight” and “The Odyssey of Flight 33.” In the final analysis, only one will emerge unscathed. Along the way Craig struggles with French pronunciations, extols the glory of stop-motion dinosaurs and powers through some kind of sinus malfunction. Mon dieu!

3x10 "A Conversation with Koren Shadmi"




Koren Shadmi’s graphic novel The Twilight Man: Rod Serling and the Birth of Television drops on October 8th, and he was kind enough to drop by (in a virtual sense) and talk about it. As usual, Craig trips all over his tongue, breathes too hard and says “um” way too many times.

3x08 "You Can't Blurry Love"




Is this a podcast about a television series, or a podcast ABOUT a podcast about a television series? Craig takes a deep dive into “Blurryman,” the extremely meta season finale of the 2019 Twilight Zone reboot, then takes a shocking left turn partway through that threatens to change podcasting as we know it forever. Okay, that may be a slight exaggeration. Let’s just say this episode is not to be missed.
