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 #105): “Valley of the Shadow” (airdate 1/17/63) The Plot: An intrepid reporter follows a sweet lead (his runaway dog) into a small, hidden town to find a wondrous place of peace and prosperity that demands he stay there forever. The Goods: Written by Charles Beaumont, this episode tills some difficult soil. At its heart is the question of whether ultimate power is safe to deliver to the masses and into the hands of our leaders. It asks whether the world is even ready for salvation. If it isn’t, what’s the price and point of trying to save it? Philip Redfield (Ed Nelson) is an outsider, an alien who wanders into a tucked-away town that has the ability to manipulate atoms to create, destroy or move anything they care to. With great power comes great responsibility, but Redfield sees it as his responsibility to take the secrets of peace to the greater world beyond the town’s borders.
