My favorite was one where this guy was a stressed out executive..car breaks down...starts walking and twilight zone leads him back to his childhood..he sees himself at 11 or 12 years old...that magical time ...the last bit of innocent boyhood...and he tries to go back...wants to see his parents..play baseball..go on the merry go round..he goes to his parents house/his old house and his Dad sees this dude in his 30's...dont know who he is although he looks very familiar...but basically says stay the fuck away from my son creep...finally his dad sees his drivers  license and knows its him...

He says "I don't know how or why you got here Martin...but you had your time...its 11 year olds Martins time now...you have to go back wherever you came from"....

Hit me...as that fucking summer of 12 years old man...soon you just want to get laid and get paid the rest of your life...but that summer when you turn 12....

Very special but very brief....and you can NEVER go back....

I watched it again.  It takes from there to back again.  Serling was something of a genius, albeit confined to the literary/film world.

The Twilight Zone.   I enjoyed the book, "The Hobbit" but not the ridiculously long Peter Jackoff film(s) treatment.

Great and clever show.

Rush recorded a song about it for its 1976 masterpiece, 2112, called, suitably, “Twilight Zone”.

I forgot you're Canadian. LoL I used to frequent the trulyhuge.com/chat chat room back in late 90s/early 2000s and there be a fella on there who would talk about something called Rush (for the longest time I had no clue that Rush was even a band and to this day I have no idea who they are lol) and how they made the greatest music of all time or something and then somebody would agree and they'd go on and on about this Rush, and it would just so happen that everybody who talked about Rush in that chat room happened to be Canadian.

anyways... That's all. No real point to this post. Maybe ill YouTube this rush stuff after I make some mac n cheese lol

 "The Lonely" episode about the prisoner with his robotic companion is one of my favorites. Judging by the headlines, that day isn't too far off.

Absolutely. Shows were similar in some ways, but yet so different in others. "One Step Beyond" was another in that genre.

The Abe Linc-Ep was called "Back there".

"Walking Distance" from 1959 (season 1, I think).  One of my favorites because of it's theme.    The Lincoln one is too.  Rod Serling was great.  We don't have people like that these days or if there are any, Hollyweird keeps them out.   Too bad.    I enjoyed "Night Gallery" too and "The Outer Limits". 

Now they have "Game of Thrones" and "The Walking Dead" but they just don't appeal to me.  I've watched some shows like "Lucifer" and "Grimm" and they're okay but not nearly as great as Serling's stuff.

Yes, we have been discussing Walking Distance which i said gave me the feels, but then you said "It takes from there to back again."

So is Walking Distance taking from a novel called "There to back again"?

Not that I know of, but when I said that it takes you from there to back again it was because that is how it makes me feel.  Also, there is a Beach Boys song called "From There To Back Again" that gives me the same kind of feeling.  Good stuff for oldsters such as me.

And of course Tolkien's, "The Hobbit - Or There and Back Again." A masterpiece of a fantasy novella if ever there were one. 

Another great story that would've made a good TZ is 1938"s "Helen O'Loy".  It is excellent and variations on it's theme have been used more than once in literature and film/TV.   "The 9 Billion Names of God" is also very good short story.

"Alfred Hitchcock Presents..." and "Thriller" with Boris Karloff were pretty cool, as well.
