'Rolling Stone' recently published a list of the 100 Greatest TV Shows of All Time, and one of Binghamton's own made the list at number 7.  'The Twilight Zone' series was named as the 7th greatest TV show ever by a number of entertainment critics.

The legendary series ran from 1959 to 1964 and is still celebrated today, holding up very well in TV reruns.  I must admit, it's always the highlight of my New Year's weekend, catching as many as I can on the SyFy Channel.

Few would ever dispute that Rod Serling was a creative genius.  His mind was full of imagination and was years ahead of his time at the advent of television.  For many years, people would wonder why his home town of Binghamton has not done more to honor the legendary Rod Serling.  That changed with the opening of the Rod Serling Archive at The Bundy Museum, 129 Main Street in Binghamton.

If you've never experienced man and legend at the Bundy, this weekend would be a great opportunity to learn more about this Hollywood icon from Binghamton.  Saturday (October 15), The Rod Serling Archive Presents: 'The Curse of the Twilight Zone Stars,' hosted by Michael Pipher.  

Doors open 6:00 p.m. and the program begins 7:00 p.m.  Admission is FREE and includes a special screening of two of my favorites, 'Long Distance Call' and 'Living Doll,' both still haunt me to this day.  It's okay though, especially when you're in the 'Twilight Zone.'
