Are you ready for an ALL NEW Season 3 of the Interactive Study of The Twilight Zone? This time we will be exploring a different facet of the human condition. Specifically, we will concentrate on the conflict reflected in the classic episodes by Rod Serling and his contributing writers.
Each session includes an episode that stars an atypical protagonist who must face a unique set of circumstances. The conflict they experience and the actions they take transform them, often in unpredictable ways.
We will watch a 25-minute Twilight Zone episode and then evaluate the dilemma of the lead character and the choices they make to resolve their specific challenge. Spotlighted in each session will be an examination of the actors, the writers and the role of the producer of the Zone. Additionally, comparisons will be made to other television programs and various films.
