Creator: Rod Serling.

Cast: Rod Serling, Robert McCord, Jay Overholts.

Rob Sterling modern Sci-Fi focuses on folks who suddenly find themselves in extraordinary situations usually in a supernatural situation. Here is a series well done and ahead of its time. The series featured incurtions  into controversial grounds like racism, Cold War paranoia and the horrors of war. Here is rhe thing the studio wanted Orson Welles to present the show but he wanted too much money so Sterling did it, he always wear a suit and a tie and smoking a cigarette that was his trade mark. His stories had a brief summaries of stories at the start and a conclusion of the moral at the end. Also i love the frequent and effective use of twist endings. His stories had also a dark sides with paranoia, hatred and ignorance. He was the most famous writers people would recognized him in the street, he was only 5’4″. He knew how to use his imagination very well on the top of that he was a great writer. He was getting tired to write them so he hire 2 writers who was thinking like him and it works people thought that he wrote the story came to find out that it was a different writer. When the series got cancelled. He was teaching at the university. Ranked #1 in TV Guide’s list of the “25 Greatest Sci-Fi Legends” (1 August 2004 issue), the only real person on the list. All the others are TV show characters. He is considered to be one of the most influential writers in Television History and is credited with creating many storytelling methods still used today. Over all this is one of my favorite series which I am going to own very soon. Rob Sterling was born on December 25th 1924.  I will leave you with this Rod Always said “If you need drugs to be a good writer, you’re not a good writer.”
