Here Are The Rest Of Our 'Twilight Zone' Top 25 Episodes

12/31/2011 9:12am EST
The Twilight Zone
A few months ago, we brought you a list of our Top 10 ‘Twilight Zone’ episodes. With another New Year’s marathon approaching on SyFy, we decided there were just too many good installments missing from the previous list. Here, in no particular order, are the rest of the Top 25 episodes, in our book.

‘The Long Morrow’ – Season Five – Jan. 10, 1964

By the fifth season, the show had gotten a little stiff, the writing sometimes forced. But even imperfect episodes like this one strike an emotional chord. The plot is actually quite brilliant: An astronaut decides to take on a 40-year-mission int...

'Body Snatchers' Actor Kevin McCarthy Dead At 96

9/12/2010 7:48pm EDT
Kevin McCarthy in 2005.
Actor Kevin McCarthy, best known for his role in 1956's 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers' and Oscar-nominated for 'Death of a Salesman' in 1952, has died at age 96, of natural causes.

McCarthy maintained film credits all the way up to 2010, most recently with short films.

Known for his chiseled jaw and for playing everyman parts, McCarthy will be forever remembered for playing Dr. Miles Bennell in the sci-fi classic 'Body Snatchers,' which sparked a flurry of rip-off B movies.

He is also well-known for a memorable guest spot on the original 'Twilight Zone' in the episode 'Long Live Walter...

Welcome to the wild world of "Weird Al" Yankovic - a world populated by a Pennsylvania Dutch gangsta-rapper ("Amish Paradise") and a serial-killing Saint Nick ("The Night Santa Went Crazy") - a world where people frantically search for their Liquid Paper, hallucinate about the floating disembodied head of Colonel Sanders and dream of one day visiting "The Biggest Ball Of Twine In Minnesota."

Best Film & TV About Alien Invasions

X-Files
For centuries human beings have considered the world beyond Earth and wondered if there was life outside of what we know. There have been essays, books, movies, television, and plenty of conspiracy theories about the existence of aliens or extraterrestrial life.

In the past 50 years or so pop culture has been fascinated by this idea and what would happen if the alien nation found its way to our Earth. Would they be like Star Trek, some hostile and some friendly to humankind? Or would they be like Aliens and plan to tear the flesh off our bones?

With ABC bringing back a TV series abo...
