Welcome back to the Horror 101 podcast. Finally, we bring you our 50th episode! Horror 101 has gone from this small little project that began several years ago to being one of the most popular Horror Podcasts on the net. You listeners have catapulted us to the top of the Podomatic TV/Film list time and time again and we thank you for your support. We began this show with the hope to give you an entertaining reflection on some of the best genre films that you might have missed and it was our job to get you to watch these movies. After listening to this many Horror 101 podcasts we can certainly say that you have graduated Horror 101 with honours!

And for this 50th episode the Horror 101 team is going to spotlight a television show that has, to this day inspired many genre authors. In late 1959 writer/producer Rod Serling gave us his imaginative half hour show called the Twilight Zone. This show would delve into a litany of social commentary and wonders that the 50s TV viewer had never seen before. Sometimes they were frightening, sometimes heart warming but always fantastic and bizarre. We will focus on some of the more terrifying episodes and what they meant to us. Its a special 35 minute podcast that will bring you to another dimension of sight, sound and mind. Join us as we open the gates to The Twilight Zone.
