Can you tell the difference between the first and last episodes of The Twilight Zone?

Audiences said hello and bid farewell to The Twilight Zone with these fantastical adventures.

Here are ten clues about the series premiere and finale of The Twilight Zone. Can you tell which one each statement applies to? Be careful, some may apply to both!

I have 'em ,too but mostly watch MeTV because I worry about damaging them! Kind of like buying a CD anyway because you don't want to damage the vinyl version in your collection!

Good Job! 👏🏻. Now you can watch movies at your whim. Also the scary and horror movies I will be posting soon 📽🤳😲😵🤣-
Scary Sunday is here for your watching pleasure. You may get horror, sci-Fi an other suspense murder mysteries.

Our first movie I just found yesterday. It is a wonderful older classic from 1945. Summary: Seven guests, a newly hired personal secretary and two staff are gathered on an isolated island by an absent host and someone begins killing them off one by one. They work together to determine who is the killer? Movie is rather fun watching and trying to figure out who is killing who and why.

And Then There Were None- (1945)-1 hr 37 min- Crime-Drama-Mystery-
René Clair
Barry Fitzgerald---Walter Huston---Louis Hayward---June Duprez---Judith Anderson---
Roland Young---Mischa Auer

The Omega Man (1971) 1 hr 38 min--Action Drama Sci-Fi-
Boris Sagal
Charlton Heston---Anthony Zerbe---Rosalind Cash-
At least now I can save the ones I want to keep (not the scary ones tho 🫣)
No---Save one save all 🤳🎃😕😋😎

9 for 10. I don't remember the "man who has achieved every man's ambition" line at all.

It's not in either episode; MeTV screwed up. The entire opening narration of the pilot episode is "The place is here, the time is now, and the journey into the shadows that we're about to watch could be OUR journey."

7/10…one of my favorite episodes, The Bewitchin Pool.

This quiz was rather boring, IMO. I pretty much just clicked through it. For some reason, when the answers are all the same, I just zone out. Kind of like quizzes that ask you to guess the dates.

Perfect score but comments! [4] Technically, the correct answer is neither because on Paramount Plus the episode ends with a promo for next week! [5] If you count The Time Element, the correct answer is last episode ONLY! [8-9] Because of the bad edit of Bewitchin' Pool, the twist is given away BEFORE Serling even appears! [10] The final episode shot was Come Wander With Me!

''You got 6 out of 10'' ----------Did you have an eye for all the right answers on this quiz? ----No, I did not. I missed 3, 4, 6, and 10.

10 almost tripped me up. I knew that the last episode aired was not the last one filmed, so I was going to check “Last episode”, but obviously the first episode aired was not the last one filmed either.

You're a perceptive individual as I got them all right except for the last one which is kind of a trick question because obviously the first episode was not the last one filmed, but more likely the first or close to it. I do not remember the line in #6 which says "A man who has achieved every man's ambition" but I figured that it must have been the first episode.
