    Definitely a guilty pleasure. My classy wife (how classy can she really be ...?) caught me watching that a few years ago. I got the slow stare from her. She couldn't believe I liked this foul show. It wasn't this scene, but one like it, that she walked in on ...

    was watching some old twilight zones just to see if i missed any
    one i'm sure i had missed was season 5 episode 22, a piece called occurrence at owl creek bridge
    Rod gives a narrative about the piece and how its from a different country iirc
    not many words just a crazy tale
    if you were ever a fan i'd be curious if you saw this one

    That's my favorite Ambrose Bierce short story. I'll be teaching that in a few weeks. Brilliant.

    Bierce originally wrote it as a Civil War era piece. A French filmmaker then made a silent short of it in NJ the 1930s. Serling may have been the fourth of fifth person to remake it.

    love the short story--read it in high school, maybe Finski was my teacher :D
    I believe it was also on Alfred Hitchcock presents too....

    watched "the cove" on the slaughter of dolphins and whales
    i knew about the whales like we all did but had no idea how Japan see's things in regards to dolphins
    the view them as competition for food and ultimately pests
    this group, led by a guy that worked w the original flipper show, manage to get covert footage of whats going on
    i know its 10 years old but i felt like i did watching elephants slaughtered for human reasons
    i doubt much has changed in the last 10 years since its pretty hard to control what other countries do
    really makes me sick inside and the last 20 minutes of covert footage has to make anyone sick
