Syfy’s 2019-2020 New Year’s Twilight Zone Marathon Schedule

Okay, Zoners, the partial schedule I posted last Friday for Syfy’s New Year’s Twilight Zone marathon was a big hit. But the full schedule is what Pedott would say we really need, right?

Happy to oblige. And unlike most wishes in the fifth dimension, this one is consequence-free …

  1. This is great! Thank you! This is also the first time I’ve noticed “The Masks” isn’t airing at 11:30pm Dec. 31st.

    • I’m just glad they’re not showing “The Midnight Sun” then. I love that episode, but that slot wasn’t right for it, regardless of the word “midnight” being in the title. And you’re welcome!

  2. You’re right, Midnight Sun didn’t work either. They’ve aired The Masks so often, I forgot the story didn’t revolve around New Year’s Eve, it was a Mardi Gras Unmasking at midnight. LOL

  3. No thanks! Unless SyFy has finally decided to ditch the smooth-motion filter they’ve employed while airing their annual Twilight Zone marathon these past few years, I’ll be watching on Netflix instead. Or – – even better – – my Blu-rays.

    • Believe me, watching anything on broadcast TV is inferior to discs, or even to streaming, as I mentioned in my “Marathon Misgivings” post (linked to at the end of this post). But there is still a nice community aspect to the marathon that, I think, still makes it worthwhile, especially in these socially fractured times.

      • I agree wholeheartedly about the community aspect. I often put the marathon on in the background on New Year’s Eve and will sit and take in the odd episode here and there as time permits. But when I do that, I almost immediately switch to the streaming or disc version. It’s just that there’s no plain and obvious reason to muck with the visual presentation of these classic episodes — it’s not like it will attract new fans. I don’t mind the time edits so much. And seeing the natural film-grain of the 35mm film is preferable to anything else. But seeing them with this “soap-opera” effect baked-in (it’s not my TV settings) robs them of a great deal of the mystique they have. And I’m not talking about the 6 episodes that were shot on video (although, I think those videotaped episodes have charms of their own thanks to that compromised presentation.) The unnatural movement is immediately noticeable and I’ve actually changed channels after watching it for too long. I find the old scratched-up, hissy standard-definition versions preferable to this.

  4. Gotta Love this. Thanks for the sched buddy!

  5. Paul, ordered whole set of TZ series, sadly, did not recall that only 25% were really GOOD!

  6. Paul, 4got to say, also, that OMG! How many super TV/movie stars appeared on TZ episodes, &/or later went on to become famous actors. Wow! Even Lee Marvin, Telly Savalas, Bill Shatner, Burgess Meredith, Cliff Robertson, & many, many more. Oh, did U see TZ as final answer on Jeopardy 2 nites ago? Ref: It’s 4 note musical intro song? A short musical set for 2 guitars Answer was: “Strange #3”.

  7. Thanks for the info -will pass it on

  8. Reblogged this on Phoenix Rising Art and commented:
    Thank you was using 2018 schedule found at right time. Happy Watching and New Year!

  9. Well well well! They actually did it! No more smooth-motion filter! At least, not on the two eps I’ve seen so far.

  10. seriously there is no way to watch the marathon without subscribing to Syfy’s cabel channel?
