With the entire original run of The Twilight Zone available to watch instantly, we’re partnering with Twitch Film to cover all of the show’s 156 episodes. Are you brave enough to watch them all with us? The Twilight Zone (Episode #57): “The Prime Mover” (airdate 3/24/61) The Plot: A gambling addict finds out his best friend his telekinetic powers, which, as it turns out, could be incredibly useful while gambling. The Goods: Somehow, the abomination that was yesterday’s entry (Static) was also written by the same writer as today’s playful episode. Charles Beaumont churns out a winner here that’s smart even while it’s plot stays obvious. Ace Larsen (Dane Clark) is kind of a jerk. He runs a diner, but he’s so obsessed with gambling that he can hardly keep his quarters out of the one-armed bandit he keeps near the door. When he’s not losing spare change, he’s betting the customers double or nothing on their tabs. What’s worse – he’s rude to waitress/girlfriend Kitty (Christine White) and bosses orders at the eternally sweet Jimbo Cobb (Buddy Ebsen). But there’s more to this character than meets the eye. It doesn’t take the supernatural to see that, but when Ace finds out that Jimbo can move things with his mind, he has a chance to take his obsession to its breaking point.
