Stopover in a Quiet Town by DrCreep Stopover in a Quiet Town by DrCreep
The first time I ever saw this episode of The Twilight Zone I was absolutely genuinely shocked by how it ended. I suspect that I wasn't the only one who felt that way too. ;)

I think a lot of us were genuinely shocked at the end of this episode.  Unlike these days, Hollywood couldn't shock a fly.
Rod Serling had a magic that is truly missed these days. :(
I hope to keep his flame alive.

Humans and giants are ALWAYS friends in my story with many other humans, humanoids, and non human aliens too. ALL giants are aliens. Even past earth ones.

Past Earth like Atlantis?

Exactly, but present Atlantans are different. They are sea human creatures.

Or people who the Atlanteans genetically spliced with dolphins before their demise.

That's right. But giants are strictly a giant version of humans just like in Brongdinbang in Gulliver's travels and they come in the species of Annunaki, Anakim, Pledian (Orion or Sirian human aliens tall and statueque), Nephilim, Ultimatum, and Megamatum from smallest to biggest ranging from 7-200 feet in planet Weirdland.

I've heard that the Atlanteans also created the Centaurs which were obviously human/horse experimental programs.  But here's a cool one that you might not have heard of... Big Foot, or Sasquatch as he also called was their work too which was the result of slicing humans with bears...  Interesting stuff when you think about it.

I've heard of Sasquatchs and Bigfoots before. In addition to animals spliced with humans too.

Yes, but not many people know that they might just be the product of human/bear genetic manipulations done by the Atlanteans who survive in the less hospitable regions of this planet to this very day.

No, you're not alone in having that reaction. This one is one of those episodes that always stuck with me. If I had to pick one episode of the entire series that best summed up the delicious irony that made the show so amazing and unnerving, it would be this one. Nice pic. I was wondering when you'd get around to it, though I knew it was just a matter of time. ;P

Now, it they would just bring the series back with writers who were as brave as Serling had in his production team... And they could keep it in black/white just to maintain it's original feel.. Even use the old e=mc2 intro parts... It could be a masterpiece again... To bad they did try and made it like a Disney production.:(

Agreed. I'd love to see a new Twilight Zone that actually lived up to the twisted stories of the original. The remake they tried to do was just not as sinister, ironic or thought-provoking. It left me disappointed, too.

There's a good reason for this... But that reason would leave the scope of DA and threaten to rouse awake the sleepers who are very content to snooze.. How dare I become an alarm clock... Best to let them wake they're ready to do so on their own and the time is right for them.;)

You already did "The Invaders" and "The Fear," so I figured it was just a matter of time until you gave "Stopover in a Quiet Town" the Dr. Creep treatment. I think this ending has a special impact because of the fact that the all-powerful giant is nothing more than a "little" girl. The couple are easily old enough to be her parents, yet they have absolutely no authority in this situation and can only scurry about like helpless pets in the palm of her hand. It's such an extreme role reversal.

And to make matters worse, her mother condones her keeping and enjoying them for her pleasure.. Already using them as a tool for behavior manipulation of her child... Yes, their future will be painful and bleak indeed, with all of the accidents in being handled by somebody who is not mature enough to know the physical boundries with them.

If I were to estimate their probable lifespan or good health in general, I'd give them less than a week of life before something terrible happened, whether through accident, callousness, or some type of life threatening injury to one or possibly both of them due to either the above or any multiple of unforseen consequences.

So, the Dr Creep treatment hey? He, he.. Well I'm not through giving the Twilight Zone my very special and unique form of treatment just yet... Look for more to come in the future.;)
