Every year, die hard fans of The Twilight Zone patiently count down the minutes to the beginning of SYFY network’s New Years Marathon of the classic series, and this year is no different.
Beginning at 10:55 pm on December 30, 2018 and running for a whopping 56 hours, SYFY will transport viewers to another dimension. A dimension of sight and sound, but also of mind, and it all starts with episode 20 of Season 2 titled “Static”.
Written by Charles Beaumont based on a story by Oceo Ritch, “Static” was directed by Buzz Kulick and told the story of a bitter old bachelor named Ed Lindsay (Dean Jagger) who is transported to a happier time in his life when his radio begins picking up radio shows from the 1930s and 40s.
The Twilight Zone Marathon continues with a generous helping of classics from “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet” and “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street” to “The Masks” and “The 7th is Made Up of Phantoms”.
Created by Rod Serling, The Twilight Zone ran for five seasons in its original incarnation. It was revived for a brief time in the 1980s and just this year, Jordan Peele announced that he was spearheading a new revival of the classic series..
