For all you sci-fi fans out there, today is "Twilight Zone" Day, something that honestly should be a recognized national holiday. The anthology series aired it's first episode all the back in 1959. but it still stands as a pillar of the genre. And creator Rod Sterling is a New York native, so there's some state pride to go with the cult appeal. Whether you're at work or at home, it's a good day to appreciate the weird or unexplainable and to watch your favorite episode.
