What is your favourite original Twilight Zone episode?

Wow! That's impossible to answer, there are so many brilliant episodes. But of course, we're talking about the original Rod Serling series, as that is the ONLY Twilight Zone that matters.

As most of you know, this show was such an inspiration to me as an artist. I will pick the first three that jump into my head:

"A Stop At Willoughby"- where a frustrated writer keeps falling asleep on a train, fantasizing about visiting this perfect, welcoming, little turn-of-the-century town. We later learn he had committed suicide.
"Mr. Williams has jumped from the train yelling something about Willoughby."

(I named my vintage car Willoughby in honor of this episode.)

"Long Distance Call"- where the little boy talks to the dead on his toy phone, and no one believes him.

"Nightmare At 20,000 Feet"- A classic, Shatner is absolutely incredible. (To this day, I never ride a plane without looking at the wing and thinking of gremlins.)

Thanks for a fun question! xox
