In our opinion, almost every episode of the "Twilight Zone" was a masterpiece, with many a star making their career richer there. Outer Limits often had more "hokey" "B Movie" effects, however there were a FEW episodes that were indeed outstanding, for suspense or story line.

I love the Twilight Zone. The writing, acting and production was all top notch. I just wish I hadn't seen every episode already.

I don't think I've ever seen Twilight Zone.. and Outer Limits... well, I've only seen the newer one. I'm not sure if that's the one you are talking about lol

They're both a little cheesy, but I thought the stories in the Twilight Zone were always better.

I have always been a Twilight Zone fan, and really never watched Outer Limits. What I like about the Twilight Zone is how sometimes they'll get you with a twist at the end. There's a lot of psychological tension in many of the episodes, I think in the whole of the series there was only maybe 2 episodes that I didn't like.

I have seen them all a hundred times, and STILL catch amazing little things that amaze and make me a fan anew.

Same here...even those were good. Just not for me.

I've watched every episode of both including the original and the newer versions. I don't think either ever made a bad episode but my favorite is Twilight Zone.

TZ out of the two because it was eerie and interesting.

I think The Twilight Zone had better writers (Charles Beaumont and Richard Matheson among them), although there's a few Outer Limits that Harlan Ellison wrote that were quite good.

I slightly remember Outer Limits but not enough. I love to watch the old black and white Twilight Zones and did growing up when I could catch them o TV. The one where the kid talks to his dead grandmother on the toy phone really creeped me out for awhile! Now, nothing rarely does . I remember they tried to remake The Twilight Zone but it just wasn't the same. I've been watching the original on Netflixs at night. I love Rod Sterling, he was such a handsome man!

I fancy the Twilight Zone. It was a show I grew up watching. Every time there was a marathon on, the TV was on playing it. As for Outer Limits, I've actually never seen the original, but I have seen the 1995 series, and whilst it does intrigue me and I like it, it's not the same as Twilight Zone is. I should probably check out the original series, but I've never seen it on.

Outer Limits had some great story writing but its screen adaptations and directing don't compare to the work done in Twilight Zone.
