For the last few years, the Syfy network has been running a marathon of the Science-Fiction classic series “The Twilight Zone” and it begins very early on New Year’s Eve and runs past New Year’s Day into Thursday. As a lot of our geek-minded readership are fans of the Rod Serling classic, I wanted to make sure that I lined out the full rundown of the episodes that we can begin enjoying at the crack of dawn. It’s remained one of my own favorite shows and stars so many legendary actors. Many of whom were still getting their start in Hollywood. Let’s review to see which of your most cherished episodes might be getting broadcast.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see by the list, there are “92” episodes involved in this years marathon and remember there were only something like “156” total shows when all was said and done with the original series. ll in all that means there are “92” episodes in all which add up to 2,760 minutes or “46” hours of Science Fiction/Suspense greatness. I’m thinking of programming about a dozen or so of my very favorites after I press publish because I do NOT have the sufficient space on the DVR for all of them. Speaking frankly, all of these recording services need to be cloud based so we can put whatever we want up there and then access them via our mobile devices while on the move. I should not need a physical box with a hard drive at this point. We are at a little less than “24” hours now which excites me as the chance to plan out an interesting year to come. Will you be tuning into any of these shows or programming the system to secure a bunch of them? Chime in down below in the comments.
