Ep 78- Twilight Zone: Night of the Meek

You’re traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. That’s the signpost up ahead—your next stop, the Twilight Z-Ho-Ho-Ho-ne!

It is the holiday season, and as many people, both secular and spiritual, gather for feasts and get-togethers, the Nighthawks serve up something special.

Leaving the realm of cinemas for a short story told on a small screen, the Nighthawks Diner passes into the 5th dimension, as Matt and Trevor discuss an episode of the classic anthology series, The Twilight Zone.

Grist for discussion in this episode is Night of the Meek, a Christmas-based episode for the ‘Zone, starring Art Carney as a down-and-out drunk of a department store Santa. Think if Miracle on 34th Street ended up being about the drunk Santa at the beginning, then he falls into some Tim Allen Santa Clause action.

Spiritually based holidays in the modern age, holiday based programming, and the grander phenomenon of The Twilight Zone, are all served up with a side of spiral ham and a glass of egg nogg. Kick back, stoke the Yule Log, and give us a listen after you finish arguing with your sister about Die Hard.
