A Twilight Zone Quiz


http://worldonline.media.clients.ellingtoncms.com/img/blogs/entry_img/2008/May/19/Rod.jpgSome of us remember Rod Serling confronting the television camera with talons of cigarette smoke and a profound intellect introducing the next episode of that show from another dimension:a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead your next stop, the Twilight Zone! (Someone please stop me.)Unfortunately, that introduction sounds more like a FOX News update on Iraq than a television program created to uncork a watershed of intellectual awareness among cold war Angst. So let's recline and relax in our intellect for a spell. That's correct, little rabbit. It's time to quiz you for total recall in that other dimension. Maybe, though, you've recently visited a diner comprised of Venusians and Martians and you're a bit recalcitrant. That's understandable. Don't worry; however, we've been expecting you. So relax and try your best at nostalgia with a brief TZ quiz:Answer the following correctly, and you'll never have to worry about atomic war, prejudice, group think, dictatorship, or any of the numerous fears that translate themselves into viable threats in the TZ. So, go ahead. Try your best to correctly answer the following five questions. If not, I know a young boy who can transport you into a corn field with a mere smile. Good luck!1. When did the series "The Twilight Zone" first air?2. In "Living Doll," what is the name of the doll?3. In "The Most Unusual Camera," what is special about the pictures the camera takes?4. In "The Fever," what kills Franklin at the end of the show?5. In "A Kind of Stopwatch," what happens to the stopwatch?Be the first with the correct answers, and I'l post your accomplishment on the blog. And remember, not everything is as it seems. Woof! (Quick, I need water and a trot in the park. ArRoof!)

Wow, rowdycat! That was way too easy for you. Got 'em all correct, though. Your intellect is from another dimension, no doubt...a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind; a journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That's the signpost up ahead your next stop, the Twilight Zone!

Marion,I would love to hear more about your experience with Mr. Serling. What a memory!

David, it would also be interesting to ask which of today's stars made an appearance on the show - there were a lot of them.Go ahead people - name some!You might find this interesting - I did in a haunting sort of way. I lost several pieces of my mother's jewelry and they were pieces that meant a great deal to me. I also lost or misplaced photos of my niece who died two years ago. A few months ago when I was getting ready to attend the first Suicide Survivors Retreat I was to bring picutres of my loved ones who had died due to suicide. I never keep a picture of my mom around - makes me too sad - and the same with my niece. So i was hunting and hunting and once I stopped looking and decided to clean out the bathroom cabinets I found an envelope that I had no idea was there. I opened the contents and there was all of my mom's jewelry and pictures of both my mom and of my niece. The return address on the yellowed envelope was The Twilight Zone. Very, very strange.Share your personal Twilight Zone experiences with us! :)

By the way, his name was Rod, not Rob. But, of course, Marion knew. Otherwise, neat post. Du du du du, du du du du.......
