Default Rod Serling After Twilight

Tom discussed this with Marc Zicree on the Twilight Zone Podcast (found at Dimension X Radio).

Zicree is apperantly working with Carol Serling on a new Twilight Zone show using unused Serling scripts. But here's the best bit, with Serling narrations to open and close each show.

What are everyones thoughts?

Part of me is slightly hesitant. It seems good anthology television is a lost art these days. Or even if it shows promise doesn't live to see that potential realised. But....

This is just too good a possibility not to have given a shot. To hear Serling's voice over again on new television that's based on his own treatments, I think I'd be over the moon.

I watched the first story on The Twilight Zone Lost classics recently (haven't got round to the second one yet). That too was based on un-used Serling treatments, scripted by Richard Matheson. It was unfortunately rather poor, but just because something didn't work once, doesn't mean it can't work again. So yes, count me in, it's too good a possibility not to see where it goes.

But I do agree with you. The Lost Episodes didn't work and the new century show didn't have that same feel to it. That's not to say that the show is of an era because it isn't, but it needs someone working on it who really cares and not someone who is looking to make a quick buck.
