New Twilight Zone episode titles

All 1980s/90s episodes of "The New Twilight Zone" were in color. For the most part, these were all-new stories, not stories from the original series. Some were based on short stories published in Twilight Zone Magazine and were quite good. Others were not so good. But the best ones were Rod Serling-quality stories. Note: some of the stories are only 10 minutes long while others are half-hour episodes. The first season was an hour long, consisting of 2 or 3 stories, so the "Season 1" list is quite long. This list has nothing to do with the UPN series of new episodes that started in 2001.

Here are the next or most recent episodes scheduled (EST / Pacific Time) on TNT, followed by all the original "new" titles according to:

The Twilight Zone website on their new slow-loading website at www.tnt.tv. All eps are rated PG and are closed captioned (CC)
