Twilight Zone Marathon
The SciFy Channel runs this marathon every July 4th and New Year's Eve so you have an chance coming up to catch it. If you are like my family and do not go out on New Year's Eve it can be a great family friendly activity. Although it may be a little deep and scary for very young children. You can always record the one in July and save it for a rainy day. The endings always surprise you as well as make you really think about how we perceive the world. You can check out the SciFy Channel's website on the series, they even give descriptions of all the episodes here.
My tween had never even heard of it and I was pleasantly surprised how much she enjoyed it. Of course she thought the special effects were corny, but that is what makes it so much fun.
Half the fun of watching these is seeing all the actors that went on to become famous. A few include William Shatner, Meredith Burgess, Agnes Moorehead, Robert Redford, and Jack Klugman. Now this will be lost on kids and probably some younger adults. But my husband and I had a blast just waiting for the next episode to see who would be in it.
Leave it to me to find a way to have a spooky New Year's Eve!
