Premise: A classic anthology of sci-fi, suspense and goose-bump-inducing tales that explore 'a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man.' Filled with invention and irony, the stories are tightly constructed, ingenious flights of imagination with often cautionary themes---and frequently a terrific twist at the end. Host and prolific writer Rod Serling penned most of the episodes himself. Influential and often (poorly) imitated, the series was resurrected twice, in 1985 on CBS and in 2002 on UPN.
