Twilight Zone

Review: NCIS - Jet Lag

by Allison Waldman, posted Jan 27th 2010 12:45AM
ziva_tony_NCIS_jet_lag(S07E13) So there they were in Paris -- Tony and Ziva. The situation was ripe for romance, right? Was NCIS finally going to "go there" and let fans have a Moonlighting moment for their favorite characters?

Not so fast. Before you could say Champs Elysees, the two were boarding a jet at Charles de Gaulle airport to complete an assignment that turned into murder in the air. Fortunately, the mystery on the airliner trumped the one on the ground and made for a good episode.

All Michael P. wants for Festivus

by Michael Pascua, posted Dec 10th 2009 4:33PM
My favorite reality tv host, The Amazing Race's Phil.I could have sworn that I was trying to find a Halloween costume yesterday, but while I was digging I should have found my aluminum pole instead. It's Festivus again and I'm letting my wishes commence.

I know my tastes skew towards reality TV, but I've gotten some obscure wishes this year on how to improve my television experience.

  • No more football overrunning The Amazing Race. If we know that an NFL game is stretched into three hours, why can't they start a half hour early and if they end on time have 30 minutes of post-show analysis and interviews? They could even dedicate 30 minutes to pre-game analysis. If you're investing three hours, you are willing to invest four.

Top 13 Scariest Moments on Television

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 29th 2009 2:02AM
That magical box we stare at for entirely too long has the ability to mesmerize and terrify us, even if we don't believe it has that power. Admit it, we've all gone to bed at some point in our lives after watching something scary on TV, and we've pulled the covers up over our heads. It's not real, yet it has the power to make us afraid. Very afraid.

In the spirit of Halloween, here are the Top 13 scariest moments on television (in no particular order). Let us know if we've missed the mark.

TV Squad Ten: best Twilight Zone episodes

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 5th 2009 2:10PM
The Twilight ZoneThere is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

Friday marked the 50th Anniversary of The Twilight Zone's debut on CBS. The first episode was titled "Where Is Everybody?" and featured Earl Holliman as a military man trapped in a town where it seems everyone has vanished. You find out at the end that it was all an experiment to see how astronauts would handle being alone on long missions. Holliman was really safe.

AOL picks the best TV shows of the 60s

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 25th 2009 12:04PM
The Twilight ZoneIt's time for another TV list! Everybody loves lists, right? This one has AOL picking the best TV shows of the 1960s.

As usual, it's a list that will get the debate going. Shows that without a doubt deserve to be on the list: The Twilight Zone, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Star Trek, The Andy Griffith Show, I Spy, and Bewitched.

Shows that without a doubt don't belong on the list: The Flying Nun, Hogan's Heroes, and The Mod Squad. Sure, I enjoyed those shows when I was younger, but I really don't think they belong in the "best" category (I'll let you debate another show on the list, Batman - great or just "campy" great?)

The Fourth is for sunburn, hamburgers, and TV marathons

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 3rd 2009 7:09PM
Leave it to BeaverI'm not a big Fourth of July person. You'll pretty much see me in front of the television as much as you'll see me in front of the television on July 3. I'm not a big cookout/parades/fireworks/beach type of guy.

Are you that way too? There are some marathons on TV tomorrow that you might like. A sampling:

  • Sci-Fi will continue their Twilight Zone marathon.
  • TCM has Fourth of July/historical movies all day long.
  • USA will have James Bond movies all day long starting at 9AM.

Here's a list of the top 50 dramas of all-time (OK, maybe 45) - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted Mar 25th 2009 2:10PM
The X-FilesQuestion: Is The Sopranos the best drama in the history of television, or is it one of the best dramas in the history of television that often gets the top spot because it's fairly recent?

That's one of the questions to ponder as you read AOL's Top 50 Dramas Of All-Time list. The Sopranos comes in at number one.

It's not a bad list, actually. When you narrow down a TV show to a specific genre and go all the way up to 50, most of the shows we would all pick will show up on the list: The X-Files, Deadwood, The Rockford Files, Mad Men, St. Elsewhere, Columbo, The Wire. Those are all classic dramas (and good ones) that you would expect to see.

One thing I didn't expect to see? Friday Night Lights in the number 10 spot, ahead of all the shows I just mentioned above.
