This show has some awesome stories. If you haven't ever seen the original series, SyFy (sci-fi) has been showing them recently (and i've been recording them)... They are obviously dated, being filmed in the late 50's/ early 60's, but there are a lot of good plots out there ready to be seen.

I've probably seen every episode of this and outer limits(original) with my dad when I was a young kid because he's been such a huge fan of it himself since he was a kid. Definitely awesome for how old it is.

I think the black and white film and lack of minorities make the rod sterling version extra creepy.

spoilers.

The flying bugs that are stinging her...THEY ARE U.S. ASTRONAUTS!!!

Everyone else is an ugly pig face...and she is beautiful!

He breaks his glasses and can't read anymore! It's not fair!

He severed his vocal chords to win the bet! But it was a fake bet, so no money!

The cook running the deli is from Mars! He has a third eye under his hat!

The walk button was a panic button!

The slot machine kills him!

That's enough spoilers for now.

SPOILERS contd:

All those people trapped in that pit are Salvation Army toys

There is only one survivor with all that gold, and there's no way to use it, because they stayed suspended for so long

The Soviet Invasion was a false alarm. The people in the bomb shelter come out ashamed of acting the way they did.

The man wanting to stay on Mars' girlfriend turns out to be a robot

Those other people are not actually on Mars, but on another part of Earth.

Hell is trying to trick that one guy. That was Lucifer, not Saint Peter.

.................

It wasn't a fake bet. The guy went bankrupt and couldn't pay him.

fake bet meaning it would not be carried out at the end, you knew what I meant

The guy that stole his briefcase and is running away? He's an evil doppleganger too.

The astronauts are dead from a crash, they haven't accepted it which is why they keep finding their bodies

The girl is dead, the hitchhiker is trying to get her to accept it

The book he steals is full of blank pages...it was a trick to see if humanity can handle the technology

Aliens are sitting on a hill controlling the weird power outages

"To Serve Human" is a cookbook (referring to first reply)

The injured police officer is death

The guy pulls the little "staff" from the door and releases the devil

The gangster is actually in hell

He wishes to become a 3 wish genie to help needy people

The burned gift to the child was a cure for all cancer

His wish of becoming famous, popular and rich landed him as Adolf Hitler

The man loses his powers to control the dice at the end. They owe those people a crapload of money...

He gives the guy new shoes to keep from getting killed.

This is my favorite dramatic series ever. Night Gallery is worth a look as well. It's a little less cheesy, a little darker.

You can watch quite a few of the episodes on CBS (along with the original Star Trek, to really emulate my typical evening plans).

The Earth isn't actually falling into the sun. She's having a fever and in reality the Earth is pulling away from the sun and will soon freeze.
