Twilight Zone episodes
Twilight Zone episodes started in 1959. The show's sophistication, acting depth, and willingness to write in shades of grey during an era dominated by simplistic Westerns influenced media for decades. Sensory appeal plays a big part in the show's enduring legacy as well. The opening ranks among the most recognizable in television history. Horror anthologies like Black Mirror carry on the original show's rich legacy. It's still considered one of the best of all time.
Many a science fiction and horror actor playing a lead role found their footing once the show commenced. For example, Donald Pleasance played several roles long before appearing in Halloween. One classic Twilight Zone episode follows a professor who's suicidal over getting fired and feels he hasn't made any difference in years. But then, he meets a World War II soldier, other veterans, and successes inspired by the professor's love of literature. William Shatner stars in a famous episode with a monster on an airplane wing.
