I just got done watching a small block of episodes back to back ...including

Thirty Fathom Grave
Queen of the Nile
Caesar and me
Rip Van Winkle Caper
Stop over in a Quiet Town

I would highly suggest If you're going to introduce somebody new to this amazing timeless show we call the twilight zone, don't let them watch any of these until they have seen the classics. Somebody could possibly hate the show with this block in a row. I'm not saying these particular episodes are bad, but back to back...yikes.

SVB, sir, you open up a great topic of discussion, which is: Which episode/s would you introduce a TZ virgin to watch first, and why?
0r Which episodes do you consider CLASSICS?


I would say To Serve Man, its has a fast pace script, it has intelligent tight dialogue, its a mystery of sorts ( a thinking man's episode), the aliens look great to this day, it has a great stunning ending, with a catch phrase that people have heard of, yet may not know the episode. A true classic.

Also , Persons or Persons Unknown is an episode I feel captures the essense of many episodes of the TZ, dealing with a man's internal psychology, his identity and about his life. AWOD works here too, to that effect, imho. Classics.
