A self-described loner with a passion for the printed page, burdened by thick

If this scenario sounds vaguely familiar, replace Marilyn with Burgess Meredith
as the bookish little character, Henry Bemis. Trade "somewhere" for the bleak,
black-and-white landscape of a man-made apocalypse, everything gone but the book
stacks in the public library. Then throw in a pair of shattered spectacles, rev
up a truckload of irony and travel into another dimension, of sight, of sound,
of mind. At the signpost up ahead, your next stop -- one of the all-time classic
episodes of ... "The Twilight Zone".

That's awesome, WilliamBoyd8! Thanks for that.

The marathon is now underway.

Regarding the upcoming marathon (Wednesday, 12/30/15 - Sunday, 1/3/16):

For the first time ever, Syfy is scheduled to air every single episode of the original series in order, including the episodes "The Encounter" featuring a young George Takei (never aired in the U.S. since its original broadcast until now) and "An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge" (aired only once since its original broadcast until now). Even taking Thursday evening's two-hour broadcast of WWE Smackdown into account (Syfy's only non-Twilight Zone content during the marathon), it'll still be the channel's longest-ever Twilight Zone marathon, starting earlier and ending later than past Syfy New Year's Twilight Zone marathons.

I always look forward to this. It's a great way to spend the New Year's holiday. My favorite episodes are: "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?", "Two" (love Charles Bronson), "The Hitch-Hiker", "People Are Alike All Over" (love Roddy McDowall), "A Stop at Willoughby", and "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" (possibly my favorite).

Hopefully they'll show all of your favorite episodes this year, Duaner.

Unlike last year (but like the previous years), not every single episode will be shown.

Nonetheless, there's now less than a week to go until the start of the next marathon!
