Is it possible for you guys to review the episode "Arrival"? I found it to have an interesting premise, but with possibly one of the more disappointing 'twists' or reveals in the series. Aaron K

Sure, we’ll add it to our list.  Thanks for listening!

Did you know that today was the day The Twilight Zone premiered on TV?

Yes.  Yes we did.  That is something we knew.

We mentioned this video in our podcast on "The Midnight Sun."  I can’t figure out if it’s the weirdest Twilight Zone fan vid ever, or the weirdest 9/11 conspiracy theory ever.  Either way, it’s something else.  “Enjoy.”

Wheels Within WheelsIn our episode on "The Midnight Sun," we discussed a scientific “goof” in the plot - the idea that the Earth spinning out of orbit would cause constant daytime.  As John explained, there would still be a day/night cycle, or at the very least one half of the planet would remain in darkness.  He mentioned the concept of a line that separates the dark side of a planet from the light…there is a technical term for that line, it’s called a “Terminator.”  Of course, it’s not exactly a straight, precise line, it’s a larger band where the    light dissipates as day slowly transitions into night - other names for it include “the gray zone” and, you guessed it, “the twilight zone.”

I love your podcast :] Will you be covering the "lost pilot" The Time Element?

Uff, that’s a big question. We recently debated whether or not we would in the context of whether or not we’d be halfway through the Pwn when we hit 78 episodes.  I’ll put us down for a maybe at this point. -J.

Requesting that you review more TZ episodes with female protagonists. Or at least break up the dude parade now and then. I mean, "Ring-a-ding Girl" is...good, but EVEN BETTER would be "Midnight Sun," "Mirror Image," "The Hitch-hiker," or "The Lateness of the Hour." Thanks!

Duly noted.  We’ve gotten multiple requests for The Midnight Sun, so you’ll be happy to know we’re gonna have a go at that episode next.  Thanks for listening!

You guys should do "The Mirror". It's a hilarious third season episode with a young Peter Falk doing a proto-Tony Montana. Bad beards, craptastic accents and Castro in-jokes abound.

We’ll be sure to add it to our list.  Thanks, Comrade!

dd-hoffman asked:

Two things: A) The Hot-or-Nots are for sure the ticket to rising from the murky, undesirable third slot to the much more distinguished second, and B) I was hoping you guys might cover An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge. Also, I just want you both to know I feel a special and probably misplaced personal connection to the "boner" clip from my first request. It's clearly the only reason I'm a devout "Pwnie".

Good to hear from one of our earliest supporters!  We will add Owl Creek to our list.  And where would the podcast be without our beloved boner clip?  Maybe in first place in the heated TZ podcast wars… But that can’t be helped now.  Thanks for listening all this time!

Have you guys done 'The Big, Tall Wish' yet? It's one of the many overlooked ones that's pretty good not great.

That sounds like a review for our podcast.  We haven’t covered it yet, but will add it to the list.
