The Sometimes Daily Feud: Twilight Zone [Game Over]

DO NOT READ THIS THREAD BEFORE YOU POST YOUR ANSWERS

Object of the game: Try to think of the most popular answer, to get the most people matching you. Only answers that are “serious” will be scored. Joke answers will not be considered, as it is not fair to other players.

Right now, the mods are having difficulties changing thread titles. I’m sorry if you come in to a Feud that is already over.

Scoring - Any answer duplicated by anyone else is worth 100 points divided by the number of entrants. For example: 50 entrant game = 2 pts per answer. If 4 people match that means they each get 8 pts for that answer. No matches = 0 points.

If any of you have ideas for Feuds -and would like me to score them- PM me and I’ll get you on The List.

FORMATTING OF ANSWERS IS IMPORTANT!

Write your answers like this; Do not repeat the questions, no periods at the end of answers, no spaces between lines, no comments, no fancy list coding. If you need to comment or clarify your answers, do it AFTER the list of answers. Thanks.
JUST LIKE THIS:

1. answer <<—There is a space after the period!
2. response
3. rejoinder

The game will end either when we have 50 entrants, or at 4:00 PM Central on Saturday, 9/20/08 whichever comes first.

Good luck!

Oh, good! One I can do! :slight_smile:

  1. “To Serve Man”
  2. “Elegy”
  3. “Eye of the Beholder”
  4. The little girl from “Living Doll”
  5. “I Sing the Body Electric”
  6. “The Howling Man”
  7. “Time Enough At Last”
  8. Talky Tina from “Living Doll”
  9. “Long Distance Call”
  10. “Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge”

1* IIRC they didn’t get on the spaceships until the very end.
7* Unless you count the aftermath of a nuclear holocaust as sci-fi-esque.

(I used this page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_The_Twilight_Zone_episodes to get the titles of some of the eps I didn’t remember them for, in case there’s any confusion about episode content.)

  1. “To Serve Man”
  2. “The Invaders”
  3. “The Eye of the Beholder”
  4. Christie in “Living Doll”
  5. “I Sing the Body Electric”
  6. “The Howling Man”
  7. “The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine”
  8. Talky Tina
  9. “Long Distance Call”
  10. “Two”

That’s going to be my reference as well. I wish like hell I had included it in the OP, so people would post the episode titles instead of describing them. We’ll see…

Man, I’ll have to sit this one out, too. The only episode titles I can remember without googling are To Serve Man, The Howling Man, and Time Enough at Last.

  1. To Serve Man

  2. Death Ship

  3. The Placebo Effect

  4. Tina from Little Girl Lost

  5. I Sing The Body Electric

  6. The Howling Man

  7. The Silence

  8. Talky Tina from The Living Doll

  9. Long Distance Call

  10. An Occurance At Owl Creek Bridge

Thanks Freudian Slit this is a fun one! I love me some Twilight Zone*. It’ll be interesting to see the answers to this. They could be all over the place what with all us TZ geeks trying to cram in some of our favorite episodes. :smiley:

I predict To Serve Man will be the conch.

  1. To Serve Man
  2. The Little People
  3. Eye of the Beholder
  4. Billy in Long Distance Call
  5. Steel
  6. The Howling Man
  7. Time Enough at Last
  8. Talky Tina
  9. Night Call
  10. The Passersby

9 was a particularly tough choice. “The Grave” is one of my favorite episodes, but I think “Night Call” will be more popular.

I used imdb for a couple, especially “Steel” because all I could remember was “Battling Maxo”, the robot.

Of course, I got so wrapped up in finding out that title that I completely forgot about “I Sing the Body Electric.” :smack:

I fear I’ll not do too well in this one.

I’ve got pizza…

  1. To Serve Man
  2. The Invaders
  3. Eye of the Beholder
  4. Tina who got stuck in the wall in “Little Girl Lost”
  5. I Sing the Body Electric
  6. Printer’s Devil
  7. An Occurrence at Owl Creek
  8. Talking Tina
  9. A Game of Pool
  10. Time Enough At Last

I predict 3 & 8 will be conches.

This might be the shortest Feud ever… :frowning:

I like the TW and could even identify two or three by title, but that’s not enough to play the feud. And I really don’t think we should rely on Google or Wiki for the whole ten questions (which I would have to do to play). One or two maybe, but not all ten.

Besides - It’s Saturday, and lovely weather (at least in the North East US) so folks are probably out. Why not extend the game’s time limit a bit?

Sounds good - I’ll wait until tomorrow.

  1. To Serve Man
  2. The Lonely
