Rod had dreamed every detail of the lunar station and spared no expense in making it come to life. It had to look streamlined and metallic; had to be shadowy/noir for the mood. Most important the light outside had to be bright, as if it was a long way from the dark side.

      Do you know that imdb.com has an episode list of every show and what it was about? I went to that list to find the right (one that looked like it would fit) episode for the title to this story.

          I do too. The only time I don’t go there is when I’m interested in info about a new series I’m watching, as next to the actors’ names they show how many episodes they last until. That gave me a spoiler once I will never forget!

    A very nice look into the mind of a genius. In his words… “Last stop on a long journey, as yet another human being returns to the vast nothingness that is the beginning…and into the dust that is always…the end.”

      Mostly strange, sometimes scary tales. As a kid it scared me bad!

    Forest Whitaker is interesting and does a competent job in later revivals but nothing compares to the original Rod Serling. Good story.
