In 1959 Rod Serling's TV series, "The Twilight Zone," made its debut on CBS. Though not a major success at the time, the show that served up horror and science fiction stories as winking tales of contemporary society has taken on legendary status, influencing films and TV ever since. David Pogue looks at how Serling crafted a TV classic with New York Times television critic James Poniewozik, and talks with the writer's daughter, Jodi Serling, about the influence that his hometown, Binghamton, N.Y., had on Serling's allegorical tales. Pogue also talks with Jordan Peele, the writer-comedian behind the Oscar-winning "Get Out" and "Us," who this week introduces a new iteration of "The Twilight Zone," debuting on CBS All Access.

I don't understand why CBS All Access won't distribute over popular streaming platforms like Amazon Fire TV, Roku, etc.

What part of capitalism do you not understand? coffee There's a reason why such platforms like Napster met holy hell from capitalists. Hmm

Looks like CBS finally yielded and they ARE now on the popular streaming devices. Maybe I'll check out the new Twilight Zone tonight.
I need something new now that I finished Mad Men.

You can get CBS All Access on Amazon Prime for $5.99 a month. Of course, that's after you pay for Prime. If you have it anyway, CBS could be a good deal. That's with commercials, but not many.
