June 19 marked 50 years since the last episode of The Twilight Zone aired. With over 150 episodes in five seasons, Rod Sterling's anthology series was so prominent that it inspired a film and two revival series. In the five decades since it last aired, The Twilight Zone's influence is still felt today.
With the elements of science fiction, mystery, suspense and fantasy that were present in all five seasons, it is no wonder it ranked No. 26 in TV Guide's 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time in 2002. In 2013, it was ranked as the third best-written series ever by the Writers Guild of America, and the fifth greatest show of all time by TV Guide.
In light of its recent milestone, and in preparation for the Syfy network's Independence Day Twilight Zone marathon, we have compiled a list of the top 10 episodes. May we enjoy them and momentarily find ourselves in the fifth dimension that is The Twilight Zone.
