    The Obsolete Man

    Probably just the thick, anti-communist, political overtones but this one really stuck out while watching some of the TZ marathon this weekend.

    One of the best series ever. Rod Serling was a genius.

    That episode could have been written by Franz Kafka. It was excellent. For all the ideas the Twilight Zone touched upon..there are very few clunkers. And it's still relevent today.

    Then there's the one (I don't remember the title) where a hobo, a ballerina, a clown, and some others find themselves trapped in some kind of metal cylinder and don't know how they got there.
