Ranking THE TWILIGHT ZONE Season 2 Episodes

July 2, 2020 by  

THE TWILIGHT ZONE’s second season was star-studded—with the show boasting Morena Baccarin, Kylie Bunbury, Jenna Elfman, Ethan Embry, Sky Ferreira, Tavi Gevinson, Topher Grace, Tony Hale, Gillian Jacobs, David Krumholtz, Thomas Lennon, Sophia Macy, Natalie Martinez, Joel McHale, Chris Meloni, Gretchen Mol, Paula Newsome, Billy Porter, Jimmi Simpson, Jurnee Smollett, Daniel Sunjata, and Damon Wayans Jr. in the ten episodes—but like every anthology series, there were high and low points.

We ranked the season 2 episodes (from worst to best), but note this is spoilery for the installments and the twists may be discussed…

#1: "A Small Town"

Picture 10 of 10

CBS All Access' take: A quiet church handyman (Damon Wayans Jr.) uncovers a magical scale model imbuing him with the power to help his struggling small town. But with the sleazy Mayor Conley (David Krumholtz) taking all the credit, will Jason's good intentions be corrupted? Natalie Martinez and Paula Newsome also guest star. Written by Steven Barnes and Tananarive Due, directed by Alonso Alvarez-Barreda.

Our take: TWILIGHT ZONE preferences are so individual, but something about a guy who is trying to do right by his town felt really nice right now; at a time when we're so isolated, seeing a community that cared about each other felt like a balm for the soul. Sure, he got cranky when the annoying mayor got credit, but when push came to shove, he owned up to his actions versus taking the easy way out. And, uh, now they have a very large piece of gold to help rebuild the town.
