Doug McCoy’s 80s Anthologies: Episode By Episode – Twilight Zone Season 1 Episode 4

New Twilight Zone - CBS Ad
Fellow Retroist writer Doug McCoy has the latest 80s Anthologies: Episode By Episode podcast up for your listening pleasure! Friends to the Retroist site Claymation Werewolf and Phishbon3s join Doug and myself to discuss the fourth episode of the 1985 Twilight Zone.

For this podcast we talk about the three segments from the October 18, 1985 episode of Twilight Zone. The three segments as usual provide an interesting connection between those in front of the camera as well as behind the scenes. In this fourth podcast we learn that at least one actor in every segment seems to have had a role in the TV series Simon and Simon!

“Little Boy Lost”
Twilight Zone - Little Boy Lost
In our first segment we are introduced to Carol Shelton (Season Hubley) who finds herself being seemingly stalked by a young boy named Kenny (Scott Grimes).

“Wish Bank”
Twilight Zone - Wish Bank
In the second segment, Janice Hamill (Dee Wallace) finds a magic lamp but upon rubbing it begins to understand the old adage ‘Be careful what you wish for’.

Twilight Zone - Nightcrawlers
In the final segment we have a Vietnam veteran named Price (Scott Paulin) with an incredibly powerful ability or in this case it would be more fitting to describe it as a curse.

So when you get a moment why not visit the link provided in this post or drop by the McCoyCast site or iTunes and give it a listen? If you like what you hear why not drop us some feedback and let us know if you agree or disagree with our decisions on the merit of each segment?
