    Though I quit cable about a year ago, I do have Twilight Zone at Amazon Prime. I was just about to run over and start my own marathon when you posted. I'll bet some of these are available there. Maybe even at archive.org for free.

    I was a kid when it was on ('58-'63), and my dad was an active Eisenhower Republican. He never objected to the politics, because I think it reflected somewhat the prevailing worldview about goodness and badness. At least in our house.

    Sad how the world has changed since then, but WTF! Happy new year, anyway!!

      There's a lot of episodes on there if you look. I think Hulu might have them too, or the CBS webpage. There's lots of options.

      I'd also suggest checking out both the 1980s and 2002 revivals of the show. Neither are in Serling's league, but both have some great episodes. In particular from the 80s show I'd suggest the Harlan Ellison-scripted "Paladin of the Lost Hour," which has Danny Kaye (in his final performance) as an old man who guards a time piece that contains existence's last hour and must pass it on to a guilt-ridden Vietnam vet (Glynn Turmann). Very moving.
