Quality Writing, Timeless Themes
This is one of those series that will continue to stand the test of time. Rod Serling faced incredible censorship thus he and the show's writers had to convey important universal social themes, such as racism, government, war, and society creatively. This is one of the things we've lost with all of the "in your face" media today. Writers including Charles Beaumont, Ray Bradbury, Earl Hamner, Jr., George Clayton Johnson, Richard Matheson, Reginald Rose, and Jerry Sohl worked on the show as were adaptations of many classic stories by Ambrose Bierce, Jerome Bixby, Damon Knight, and Lewis Padgett. As a kid watching reruns on late night television this program made science fiction accessible. As an adult, I can further appreciate the language and acting even more.
Thanks iTunes for bringing this program to a new generation.
