Tonight's Scary Show -- Twilight Zone: 'The Doll'
For Halloween week, the Dorchester Times has aired the three scariest episodes of the classic TV show, "The Twilight Zone."
We've selected these three episodes of "The Twilight Zone" because some of us Times staff members actually remember when CBS aired this imaginative series.
These 30-minute programs are wildly creative, spine-tingling tense and yet family friendly.
Imagination and solid story lines carry these shows, whose quality far surpass any of the "scary shows" produced today.
Tonight's episode is called "Living Doll" -- one of the most memorable "Twilight Zone" stories.
"Talky Tina" is a gift from a mother to her daughter Christie. It can talk, saying things like "I'm Talky Tina and I love you very much."
But Tina's petty, bitter and mean stepfather Erik (Telly Savalas) thinks it talks too much, and is resentful of its presence. In his efforts to get rid of the doll, he gets more than he bargained for.
Enjoy tonight's episode. But be sure to leave on an extra light. Or maybe two. Happy Halloween.
