Season 1Season 2 | Season 3 | Season 5

In this episode of the Rooster Illusion podcast, The Twilight Zone‘s fifth season is in the Roost. Alex (The Tuesday Zone, Eldritch Adaptations) and Colleen discuss the historical context and fairy tale-esque morality of the series’ final season, looking at seven episodes in particular: “Living Doll,” “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” “The Fear,” “A Kind of Stopwatch,” “The Masks,” “Night Call,”  and “The Old Man in the Cave.” Join us in the Roost as we look at these episodes and consider the season and series in general.
