This week, Craig celebrates his birthday by spotlighting two of his all-time favorite Twilight Zone episodes: “Perchance to Dream” and “Shadow Play,” two masterpieces from the mind of Charles Beaumont. Tangents include Craig’s unresolved crush on Maya the Cat Girl and his lamentable inability to dream in the third person. Fan favorite Dr. Reba Wissner pops in to set him straight about the curious lack of the Theremin in The Twilight Zone, and of course he gets the usual familial abuse from Teresa and Kendyl. Happy birthday, my ass.
