TV Series
    (October 1, 1959-June 1, 1964)
    Originally aired on CBS
    Featured tales ranging from comic to tragic about a dimension of sight and sound
    Writers included Serling, Richard Matheson and Ray Bradbury
    Narrated, hosted and created by Rod Serling
    Orson Welles was originally selected to host and narrate.
    Some episodes were shot on videotape.
    Rod Serling distanced himself from the show after the network would not allow him control over some of its content. He sometimes refused to even appear on the set (hence why he is sometimes heard only doing a voice-over).
    It needlessly switched to an hour long episode format in the middle of the series.
    There were attempts to revive the show, but it never captures the same tone as it once had and always fails.
    Due in part to Rod Serling's radical political views, it sometimes had a tendency to moralize.
    Rod Serling once invited the viewers to submit a script to the show, and was flooded with over 14,000 scripts. He got around to reading 500 of them, but only two were good and he still could not use them because they did not fit the format of the show.
    Rod Serling would narrate the show while smoking.
    It was a ground breaking show that is copied at least in some way by many other sci-fi shows.
    It inspired a movie and a top ten song by Manhattan Transfer.
    It pushed the envelope by telling dark, ironic tales.
    It featured controversial episodes that dealt with war, racism and mindless hatred.
    It was probably the first popular adult-oriented science-fiction show on television.
    It received two Emmy Awards for writing and one for cinematography.
    It has a great opening theme.
    It featured dozens of notable guest stars, including Jonathan Winters, Burgess Meredith, Robert Duvall, Robert Redford and Agnes Moorhead.
    Thanks to the show, Rod Serling ranked #1 in TV Guide's list of '25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends' (August 2004).
    It ranked #8 in TV Guide's list of the '25 Top Cult Shows Ever' (May 2004).
