Chris, Mike, and Father Malone are back to talk about the mid-'80s Twilight Zone 15th episode which included Monsters!, A Small Talent for War, and A Matter of Minutes -- a very uneven entry in the first season.
It's a star-studded episode of Twilight Zone 85 with a two-parter, Welcome to Winfield where a couple hide from an agent of Death (Gerrit Graham) in a town that Death forgot.

This episode also features Wong's Lost and Found Emporium which features Brian Tochi as a man who's looking to regain his sense of compassion.
While Father Malone is away on business, Mike and Chris discuss the 11th episode of Twilight Zone 1985 which includes The Beacon -- in which Charles Martin Smith comes to a creepy town run by Martin Landau -- and One Life, Furnished in Early Poverty -- another adaptation of a Harlan Ellison story about a cranky writer who talks to his younger self.

Father Malone makes his triumphant return with a discussion of the 12th episode of the Twilight Zone (1985) which features "Her Pilgrim Soul", a maudlin story by Alan Brennert (directed by Wes Craven) about a woman who grows up virtually as well as the short and sweet "I of Newton" which was based on a story by Joe Haldeman and stars Ron Glass and Sherman Hemsley.
