Rundown Of “The Twilight Zone” Marathon Airing On SyFy Network 12/31/2021-1/2/2022

Though I don’t remember when they actually started doing this, for the past few years the fine folks over at the SyFy network have been serving up a very loaded marathon of the Science Fiction classic series “The Twilight Zone”. Now I am talking about the original series that featured the great Rod Serling and not one of the many redos and relaunches that have surfaced over time. When I ran this feature in 2020 the goal was to keep all of you inside because it was just too unpredictable out there in terms of the virus. Since then we’ve come up with the vaccine and the world has set itself on two different sides while variants of the strain keep on coming. Over the past few weeks that latest one has caused a lot of grief so maybe staying inside and keeping to yourself once more isn’t a bad idea. This past year has found my making the website much more of a Metalized Geek Culture site and that leads me to listing the full marathon rundown for those interested once again. As a Science Fiction buff, I’ve long loved this series and plan on tuning in across the marathon for those very favorite episodes but I don’t think I am programming the DVR this time around. So now let’s get on down to business and learn which of the episodes are airing and when.
