Season One awards : part 3 of 4

And just as you know, after every 15 episodes it's "that time of the month". Amazingly enough, there will be no Bronze Rods this time. This batch also has no surefire classics, minus maybe To See the Invisible Man and A Small Talent for War, but is also the steadiest one so far. Only one episode came close to condemnation - Still Life - but got ultimately bailed by good direction. On to the show thus...

The Golden Rod award for Twilight Zone excellence goes to : The Misfortune Cookie, A Small Talent for War, The Elevator, To See the Invisible Man, Quarantine, Gramma

The Silver Rod award for valuable addition to the Twilight Zone canon goes to : But Can She Type ?, The Star, Still Life, The Little People of Killany Woods, Monsters !, A Matter of Minutes, Tooth and Consequences, Welcome to Winfield, Personal Demons

The Bronze Rod award for good effort goes to : ...

Now that you mention it, Welcome to Winfield and Personal Demons tickled the lower edge of Silver Rods, but were still too good for that category in my opinion. As usual, you're welcome to comment.

Here I would have gone:

Golden Rod: Still Life, The Misfortune Cookie, A Matter of Minutes, Tooth and Consequences, Gramma

Silver Rod: But Can She Type?, The Little People of Killany Woods, Monsters!, A Small Talent for War, The Elevator, To See the Invisible Man, Personal Demons

Bronze Rod: The Star, Welcome to Winfield, Quarantine

Invisible Man was demoted because of the lousiness of the general premise, and Killany Woods was so insulting to the Irish that it nearly got demoted (Hamilton Camp- and the great ending- saved it, though.) And Quarantine could have been higher, had it not been so backloaded. This was a below average crop.
