The Twilight Zone (2019): The Twilight Zone: Blurryman
June 7, 2019 1:31 PM - Season 1, Episode 10 - Subscribe

While working on the set of the new The Twilight Zone, writer Sophie Gelson (Zazie Beetz) is haunted by a mysterious Blurryman. [Season finale]

The Twilight Zone saves the best for last in an episode that tries to answer — what is the Twilight Zone, anyway? (Den of Geek)

A fourth-wall breaking Jordan Peele might call it a little on-the-nose, but I admit, as Sophie and [Blurryman] walked off through that iconic twisting door to that iconic tune, I felt a childlike rush of emotion: What is the Twilight Zone? When do we get there? (Decider recap, with spoilers)

"I think Bigfoot is blurry, that's the problem. It's not the photographer's fault. Bigfoot is blurry, and that's extra scary to me. There's a large, out-of-focus monster roaming the countryside. Run, he's fuzzy, get out of here. " - Mitch Hedberg

IMO, that would have been a more interesting twist (then again, I have a soft spot for Sasquatch).

"What is the Twilight Zone? Where is the Twilight Zone?" seems like deep, stoned thoughts.

The show got green-lit for a second season (Den of Geek), and I'll tune back in to see where it goes from there, because some of these episodes were pretty good, IMO. Not great, and not the best of today's TV, and maybe more reliant on good actors to carry thin stories, but I'll come back.

I loved this one. I think they did a great job of making the viewer feel disoriented. There were a few in the middle of the season that fell flat IMO but overall I enjoyed them and they kept my attention. I'll tune in for the next season for sure.
