Best. Series. Ever.

The Twilight Zone. Hands down.

Coming in at #26 on TV Guide's list of the 50 best shows of all-time, its superb writing covered just about every genre: science fiction, drama, horror, comedy, romance. The show also featured great acting, thanks to a long parade of guest stars who were either already household names or would soon go on to commercial success. Among them were Mickey Rooney, Burgess Meredith, Dennis Hopper, William Shatner, Joyce Van Patten, Roddy McDowall, Charles Bronson, Burt Reynolds, Vera Miles, Peter Falk, Martin Landau, Donald Pleasance, Lee Marvin, Julie Newmar, Leonard Nimoy, and Robert Duvall, just to name a few, and countless other popular character actors.

Some stand-out episodes:Incidentally, TV Guide listed Hogan's Heroes (another one of my favorite shows) as the fifth worst show of all time. Jeers to TV Guide. Jeers, I say!

I love this show. Ray Bradbury was my favorite author when I was young. I'm not sure how many episodes he wrote for TZ and the "Outer Limits" but enough to make me a fan for life.
