When the Monsters Come Due

“Like all the best television programs, The Twilight Zone arrived almost fully-formed; it did not ramp up to quality. That first season contains both a perfect work of television drama, and arguably the most forward-looking program of that time period, capturing the way our world is now playing out in the digital age of fake news, paranoia, woke mobs, and humans hunting humans. It is episode 22, “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street,” and it’s the signpost that shows the way from 1960 straight to 2020.”
