The Twilight Zone - The strange region
of the imagination featured on the anthology program THE TWILIGHT ZONE/CBS/1959-65 narrated by the
series' creator, Rod Serling.
The opening narration of each episode explained the meaning of
the Twilight Zone with the following summary:
"There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is
a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the
middle ground between light and shadow, between science and
superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the
summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is
an area which we call the Twilight Zone."
The Twilight Zone was revived as a movie in 1983 and then as the TV
shows THE TWILIGHT ZONE/CBS/SYN/1985-88 with Charles Aidman (1985-87) and Robin Ward
(1987-88) as Narrators and THE TWILIGHT ZONE/UPN/2002-03 with Forest
Whitaker as Narrator/Host.
TRIVIA NOTE: The Twilight Zone is
also a term used by Air Force pilots to describe the moment when a
plane loses sight on the horizon while landing.
