Check out the new Twilight Zone with Forest Whitaker. It really is that good. It also has the feel of the old Rod Sterling episodes, rather than the shitty "new" twilight zone show in the 80s. (although this might just be because last episode they did both a continuation and a remake of two of the Rod Serling ones).
Not that it has an old-school, 50s feel. It's that it uses the creepy, supernatural stuff to either tell a good story, or provide a little commmentary on the human spirt, rather than to just make you go "oooh, creepy."
This show needs more love. And Forest Whitaker does a great job hosting, and I was on eof the guys that laughed out loud the first time I heard "Forest Whitaker hosts...the Twilight Zone."
It seems that I am - in no particular order - Zack Morris, John Adams, a Siren, Janeane Garofalo, Cheer Bear, Aphrodite, a Chihuahua, Data, Cletus the Slack Jawed Yokel, Amy-Wynn Pastor, Hydrogen, Bjork, Spider-Man, Boston, and a Chaotic Good Elvin Bard-Mage.
I agree that the one final episode that really put things into perspective was the last Next Generation episode. Picard started as being somewhat of a old bastard, but everyone on the crew gradually morphed into a makeshift family.
