“The Twilight Zone” was ostensibly a science-fiction show, but it actually encompassed an array of genres, topics and themes. The show explored such issues as racism, death and dying, families, aging, time travel, the effects of technology on society, and many more. Rod Serling’s immensely popular anthology always relied on great writing, and we will discuss particular episodes as literature (themes, point-of-view, symbolism, etc.) Further, we will examine not only episodes but also works of literature to which they relate or allude.
