The Twilight Zone: “The Big Tall Wish”

Excerpt: The more I watch The Twilight Zone when I’m a young girl in Miami, the more curious I become about the cosmic mysteries that Rod Serling invites me to explore. Whether focusing on outer space or planet Earth, the shows prompt me to think in new ways. On my detours through The Twilight Zone, I even get to meet courageous youth, such as Henry Temple (Steven Perry), one of the main characters in “The Big Tall Wish” (original airdate: April 8, 1960; season one, episode twenty-seven). Like many programs in the series, this episode introduces supernatural forces to raise pressing social issues relevant to everyday life in the United States. . . . #twilightzone #rodserling #memoir #sixties
