    Yeah, kinda forgot this morning. Normally I post before church, but with the icy roads, we're not able to get out this morning, so I slept in.

    This New Years, most of the college football bowl games got boring by the second half, so I kept flipping back to the annual Sci-Fi channel's Twilight Zone marathon.

    I got to watch my favorite, The Obsolete Man, about a secular society that decides what is best for humanity, and simultaneously loses its own humanity. I'm sure Wilbur will love it:

    TOTD: What is your favorite Twilight Zone episode? Is it your favorite because of the topic, or because it features a great actor?

    I love the Shatner episode with the creature on the wing of the airliner. They remade it for the Twilight Zone movie. Forget who played that one.
    Hey careful man! There's a beverage here!

    John Lithgow, IIRC.

    Sounds right. Been a while since I saw it.

    I was thinking, that was the movie where Vic Morrow was killed while filming. Sad. I remember he was Sgt Saunders in Combat. Loved that show.

    I never really watched 3rd Rock From the Sun until it entered syndication. When I first saw it, my first thought was "hey, that's the guy that replaced Shatner in the Twilight Zone Movie!"

    I like the one where Burgess Meredith looks forward to having all the time in the world to read; there's a nuclear attack, I think, and he's a survivor who finally has all the time he needs. And he breaks his glasses.

    Turned out nice and sunny here after some morning clouds. Windy
    and in the 40's.

    TOTD: There was an episode, I think it was TZ, that had these
    alien invaders that looked like big bumble bees. Anyone remember that one???

    It may have been on Outer Limits...
    May the FORCE be with you!
