My dad, once quoted as saying that although he felt his writing was “momentarily adequate,” did not believe it “would stand the test of time.” Fast forward decades to the recent "Twilight Zone" marathon. How incredibly honored and humbled he would have been, as was I, to read what Matthew Gilbert of The Boston Globe wrote on New Year’s Day:
“It all comes down to ‘The Twilight Zone’ — someday the world will understand this fact. All life lessons, all of human nature’s tricks and tragedies, are contained somewhere in Rod Serling’s slow, black-and-white, low-tech short plays. Also, many, many contemporary TV shows and movies have roots in “Zone” episodes.”
