"A few weeks ago now here on the podcast we spoke to nick. Parisi the president of the road sailing memorial foundation and one of the things we spoke about was that on the fifteenth of this month of october. They will be launching a kickstarter in an attempt to fund a statue of rod sailing in recreation park binghamton new york his hometown. An honor that i think is long overdue. And i'm sure that you agree with that. And in the first day or two it was looking pretty good if that momentum had to carried on the probably would have been no problem funding this now. The target was nine hundred thousand dollars. Which is a hefty price tag bbut for a big statue that's gonna live on for decades and decades in a public place that is to be expected but after that initial flurry of activity died down a little bit as usually happens with these kick. Starters we find ourselves in a bit of a lull a bit of a period where the pledges are still coming in. But they're not quite as fast as they used to be now at the moment it saying that there is nineteen thousand two hundred eight dollars pledged of the nine hundred thousand goal and there is eighteen days left to go. So there's still quite a mountain left to climb now tonight. i'm going to take a trip to the fished. I mentioned to begin the end of our season for coverage with the final episode of season. For and i was just going to mention it in nap where i think we need to jump on this. You know we as twilight zone fans fans of rudd sailing. I thought i would make a special effort to put the word out now over an after hours club. We manage to get together. You know a nice song to put to that. And it's already been put into the fund air but as you can see there's a lot more to go at the moments does roughly around seventy one thousand dollars left to go so so. If a thousand people gave seventy dollars that statue would be pretty much funded now. I know that much more than a thousand people. Listen to this podcast bought understandably not everyone is going to be able to contribute at that level. Some people can give more. Some people can give less but some people might not be able to afford to give anything but that's not the only way to contribute you know everyone has social media accounts people can tweet about.

"Now in my house when my kids were little anytime i cooked breakfast. It was a hang out time. Nobody ever hung out in the kitchen. Unless i was cooking in bulk my kids at hang out. I'd always make sure that i would buy extra bacon and they would hang out and sit on the sink. And then you know there was always extra bacon for sampling. We just have a great time and it was almost like a private mama with being a kids. I loved it. I remember when i was five. I i started one of one of my first big thanksgiving traditions. I would lay on the floor from about six. Am on. I was always in early riser. And just watch our after our of twilight zone because that was the thanksgiving day. Marathon of twilight zone rod sterling contributed rod. Serling insisted on being the announcer for twilight zone. They tried to talk him out of it because he he had horrible stagefright that turned into massive flop sweat so they would film the beginnings of the twilight zones like five ten in a day and he had to change his shirt and suit after each take because he would just soak through. I find that fascinating and yet rod serling was the shit every bit player in hollywood and a number of them went on to become big stars there on twilight zone but per as many stars as there were there just as many folks at that was their one and only crediting never did another god damn thing but you could depend on that i would watch twilight zone all day long right up until my mom said it was time to eat. And that's like three o'clock in the afternoon so you're looking at a solid goodness nine hours. And then i got into football but that was kind of like my mid teens so from age. Five to buddy fifteen a solid decade of one day a year of about nine hours of twilight zone. That's a. I would be shocked if there was a twilight zone episode that i haven't seen but the holidays lend themselves to odd traditions. I mean everybody has that. Do you open your gifts. Christmas eve or christmas morning. Those of the easy ones. But it's like you know other traditions like those that have that know about this. Get it the other folks. That don't you can try to google it but it may not make any sense. The tradition of cooking witch. I know someone. I went to high school within. This girl will not cook.

"And I never wanted to be cavalier about it but I was wondering you're talking about when she actually consider it all that I look at everything before I call this guy a name or make fun of this guy or be judgmental of this fellow and I'm not. Not, that I have a true understanding of why somebody steps out like that because I really don't and I've never on a personal basis done that even appreciated that kind of behavior I just don't. He may be approved. I don't care, but just never never appreciate that. Me I always felt that if we can go in it openly and you can leave it open, you don't need to screw up the thousand in the meantime. People do all the time you leave. have their rune, which should be an open until you're done with it. But. Nevertheless that's what that that fellow got involved in I'm sure without trying to make an excuses from anyone. That some of that had to do with him dealing with depression impression and all the things that he was dealing in many instances you know when when you're a writer. Especially in in his particular field. I mean you're dealing with corporate sponsors. Giving them all kinds of hassles about the racial overtones of of his work, but the social implications of his work. I mean one time he he mentioned something into his script about a match and the the the the commercial sponsor of twilight zone. Let's listen you need to take that crap out. Now I'm Ronson I'm a lighter produce. So I, can't be talking about matches on this show I'm trying to sell some damn ladders here. That's literally what he had to do. A guy got kicked out I mean so they were not playing around sponsorship. In. The world of Rod serling the nineteen fifties would not the same as they are. Now now a- show gets controversial they risk that they can lose to sponsor. The other way it was that's that's different back. Then there was an entirely different way the sponsor paid for the show if you did something dumb did literally having somebody out there to to the studio hey, this by the way. How about you stop this crap. We're gonNA just walk away. That's how it used to be back in. So they had a real say in how things went how things were said. And that's why he had to do a lot of couching and science fiction and horror and fantasy and all kinds of different things. I think one time he had a episode where he had the Jewish Person Lens instead of a black person because he couldn't do that. Even, though the actually was happening during the time, he's doing the show in the south. So. There was so much stuff. He added simply allude to allegory all of that just because those who thinks he was up to so imagine you dealing with all that. You dealing with your own demons from war to you don't want all kinds of depression you're dealing with exhaustion. He still got a family to got to contend with and the wife. So and and of course, drinking do whatever you can do to kill whatever pain is. I guess you know. Slipping over the to a another woman now, and then probably seemed like practically standard fare for him..

friend Ron was born he wrote many toilets on that's about the last man on earth you know Burgess Meredith and time this last or people turning on each other when they're under pressure like monsters

"Normalcy to return you know yes we're looking at I guess you could say this segment applies to those who are getting closer to retirement is rod Serling would say the cigar constantly for those who are and I can't do for those financial red zone and that's when you really need to start getting serious there after turning fifty it's time to start rethinking the way you've always done things become a little more conservative with your investments and start planning ahead and and the first thing if you had several jobs probably track down all those accounts who created over the years right I said it's always so many people and they they hand me you know five six seven different you know higher razor for one K. accounts so they still kept at the company they used to work for yeah and and they were you know like there's a lot of times they're confused so we're doing a a consolidation we take those four ones iris floral three bees deferred comp whatever you might have you know and we'll do a consolidation because you know it makes things a lot easier in this way I'm going to put that into the plan when I put together the right the income plan for you and we're gonna know what you have to look to look forward to it as far as what kind of income it's going to generate because you're gonna need to have in the future yeah yeah it and this is this is assuming that you have saved here the room kind of like you should have leading up to fifty if that's the case then you may want to focus more on cutting costs their costs and a little bit less accumulating it is that how you tell your what you well your clients yes I mean if you have credit card debt definitely before you retire if you're not already retire get rid of the credit card debt there's no there's no useful purpose for having it having a mortgage is one thing because you have a tax advantage with that mortgage you can write off the interest that you're paying on that car payments unless it's a zero interest loan I encourage other people if you're going to go out and buy a new car if you can get a zero interest loan through the dealer that's ideal because you're using the bank's money obviously it's not costing you anything because there's no tax advantage to having a car payment but if you're if you're a zero interest loan you're basically you know find dancing on the bank's money in your every nickel that you're paying is going towards the principal but credit card debt get definitely want to want to get rid of that that's because some of these interest rates that they charge you know it anywhere from the I seen everywhere and fifteen on the low end up to thirty five on the highway so so definitely credit card debt is something that you definitely want to get rid of anyway and you definitely want to strategize different things to so against social security is going to be coming up for a you want to talk about that we're going to do a social security maximization report for you so you know one of them is it more interesting things when we sit down and meet when we sit down have a conversation and again under the circus circumstances you know my offices have limited hours currently even though you know they are open so some of them have limited hours but you know so if we need to sit down through via a phone conversation or via Skype or via zoom or face to face I meet people at their home most most more people are comfortable with me coming over to their home I do make house calls that's not a problem but once we do sit down once we do so have these meetings and I put together these reports and we're gonna see what you have a we're gonna put it all into the report because it's really really important to understand what you have and how it's going to function going forward into the future and that's something you're you can set up that virtual meeting or even an office meeting with Marty by simply calling eight eight eight five one nine nineteen ninety six eight eight eight five one nine ninety ninety six you know turning off when I turn fifty of course on my birthday it was all the jokes you know getting sent my sister's given the centrum silver and all that stuff but still you you've got up some years to work at that age fifty us we're looking at fifty and into the financial redzone what when should you start thinking seriously about social security and it's not that far off distant thing well do you know it's it's it's important to have a strategy and that's where the social security maximization report is invaluable because it will even even if you're that young even if you're fifty it'll still you still have and and that's the key the key is you're still working you're still contributing the benefit is going to increase over time so what you're what you might look at now if you go to SSA dot gov and look up your social security account here you'll see a what your benefit is going to be at sixty to sixty seven and seventy depending on what your age is your your your full retirement age you'll see what those benefits are and if you're still working those numbers are going to change their fluid numbers because as you keep contributing the benefit keeps going up it but but it's it's important to have that that social security maximization part because it does take into account the future earnings future growth and it's going to look at your benefit at the whenever you decide to take it if you decide to take it early at sixty two sixty three or if you wait until your full retirement age sixty six sixty seven or even if you wait till you're seventy and there's a lot of things that go into making that decision and we'll have a discussion about that too but if you know you it'll tell you what the optimal time is to take your social security and actually how to apply because of the you know just go apply there's there's a method to the madness there's a methodology to how you apply so so having you know knowing your social security benefits that's a lifetime benefit obviously if you have a pension obviously that's going to be a lifetime benefits as well so there's there's a strategy that we're gonna follow and and put everything down on paper for long term for you looking at things you can do to plan ahead for your retirement the the eternal weekend that is in your future it after you turn fifteen and into your fifties is that when used to I know we always say as far as investments in market volatility if you're young especially thirties even forties you've got time to recovery I mean if if at age fifty is that when you start getting a little more conservative with your investments generally speaking yes as you get older you know your retirement accounts that's money that you want to protect that's money you're going to live off of the rest of your life so that's money you definitely want to protect you want to put that into an account you don't want that losing value I've gotten phone calls from clients they've just their third that's enough they've had enough they they know this is the third time in twenty years you know you're at all one we had eight and now we have here we have twenty twenty and then they they lost thirty thirty five forty percent of their of their value in their accounts and you know the year ten fifteen twenty years closer to retirement you don't have to here we go again I you gotta wait to retire to recover what you lost something that what I would do I would definitely consider getting a little more conservative using something that's guaranteed that's what I do I mean this is what I do I I put you into a position of strength that put you into a position where no matter what happens in the volatility in the markets your money is going to be safe secure guaranteed insured at all times so there's that you know and it's protected as well so so that's what I do I'm a retirement advisor I don't want to put your you in a position of her here Martin your where your money's gonna be disappearing right and that's not to say that you shouldn't have some money you know because I have a lot of clients they they really enjoy playing the markets you know they wake up in the morning that's their new job once they reach out to their job is is watching their money and and and and when investing it in various things and pulling it out of here and putting it over here and buying this stock and selling that one and buying this fund so that's you know some people enjoy doing that and that's fantastic so you don't have to put all your money into the safe money strategy but at least you know a majority of it so you're protected so you don't have to worry that old something geopolitically happened I'm I'm gonna be in trouble yeah this time it was Lucy pulling the football away from Charlie Brown on this one the way it happened nobody anticipated and the speed at which it happened it was just unbelievable we're losing at one point and everybody knows that we're losing ten percent today yeah it was unbelievable I never saw the markets gyrate the way the way they did so dramatically so quickly and for you know the the the the the size at which these losses occurred over such a short period of time so again I have a lot of people that is just you know yes the market will come back eventually in the market this the economy I'll come back and everything will be hunky dory but in the meantime your ten fifteen twenty years closer to retirement you have the you want to wait for that money to come back at this point in your life when you're looking at retirement and this you know flushing the ice so that's not that's not the time to get risky that's the time to start making sure that that money's going to stay there and be there for you for the rest your life well it's never a bad time to enter into that retirement relationship with Marty noble but certainly the financial redzone years an excellent time and here's an excellent opportunity for Marty Nevil to do just that enter their relationship exactly thanks Dave yeah again we could sit down and you're virtually we could sit down on the phone we could have a phone consultation initially again my offices are open on a limited basis but they are open so we would have to do you know set up a time if you want to meet face to face and that's usually the best way and and I have no problem with that you know I'm I'm crystal clean and clear you know I have my mask on him you know we're ready to go but but yes for the next ten listeners that call in and have at least two hundred thousand dollars in the retirement savings give me a call at eight eight eight five one nine nine zero nine six.

"That he felt like that we were living in a Twilight Zone and he you know we're talk about rod Serling retire about how you know many of them I was young when many of the twilight zones came out I mean many people older than me remember when they were first coming out but I remember they were out we watch a lot of reruns for on thanksgiving you could see the Twilight Zone marathons which are good and I will tell you I said yeah I said you know one of the things people don't realize about rod sterling is is that he is cynical a lot of what he wrote what he wrote those it'll tidbits of what role did TV series is classic TV series he was very cynical about the future and that's why many of the stories had these the cynical endings you know one of my favorite ones is the monsters are due on maple street in fact if you watch that that that that's one that's the single out that when people are scared how they react okay and I was speaking to him about how it was my favorite he was give me some of his favorites I said if you ever heard of black mirror there's no I've never heard of black mirror and I said black mirror you need to see that movie that the TV show to TV series you watch on Netflix I told him I said it basically is like The Twilight Zone that paints a bleak picture of how we interact with our new technology in the future it's actually you know people said that it's the twilight zone of the twenty first century and the show when you're watching this you you understand that you know that did it the guy that writes it and produces it many of the things that he is will actually written and produced come true and then of course I was having a discussion with Christy Williams she was the woman that was here with her and ran with the ouija board short time by the ouija board short time can it was and she was telling me about how we're living in today reminded her of the Netflix film bird box every member Bandersnatch and bird box came out at the same time and Bandersnatch was a product of black mirror and bird box was something else it was that it was basically this dark three fiction or not you're forced to make choices to go beyond your morals your morality because of some crisis is that it's so unknown crisis some invisible enemy remember movie many of us saudades bird box ahead Sandra bullock unit John Malkovich Sarah Paulson and it was when I saw the film and I mean watch again if it's available I saw the film I thought it was some sort of alien invasion film invasion of shadow we demons wincing cause people to kill themselves and it reminded me a lot of the happening none of you knew about films called the happening had M. night Shyamalan he did the film basically the film has suffered from a lot of bad acting but it was about how a group of people just all of a sudden we're dying of some strange disease Donny what it what it is to some invisible disease they found out that it was being passed from person to person by plants it was said that the the the the the plants themselves have a technology a special technology today they can warn other plants of predators and for some reason mother nature decided to trigger these plans to start attacking the predator that put her just having the us and we did a guy didn't whatever it was some you know like pollen or whatever was getting your system which are killing each other we are killing ourselves many of the film like the crazies George Romero getting kind of a zombie film without the zombies it's like get bird box crazy zombies yeah it's like it's just a subtle zombie film without the six psychotic chords you know walking through the streets seeking brains and like Bandersnatch and bird box what we look at here is we look at what I can control the mind and what do people do when they're scared the fear factor okay some mysterious invisible entity it is the it is like your final destination where death is the village there's this invisible entity that they're fighting against you don't see it but you know it's death you know it's fear okay and we did a whole show about we did several shows about these types of movies the bird box movie the Bandersnatch film all these things and I knew that when I was watching Bandersnatch was watching bird box and I was watching the crazies all this better stanchion bird box was impressing me about the idea that algorithms we're controlling the characters of every single one of us and I remember saying the bird box is a metaphor for Twitter and social media and I know it sounds odd but it just seemed to me that something was triggering this type of attitude and it seemed like it had something to do with with the you know they were exposed to something like whether B. and and bird box of course would be as a metaphor for Twitter but they were exposed to something and made them feel terrible about themselves they were exposed to whatever they sought a filter but the Serbs and of to kill themselves and this is like an alien invasion film because you remember invasion of the body snatchers for example there's actually made as a metaphor about the middle controls of communism and how it's like an invisible alien force and other other films you may remember the pain aliens invaders who are there to change your individualist philosophies and becoming dangerous collective philosophy is to create a destructive group dynamic much like what we're experiencing now another film that similar is the live or how about the alien Borg in Star Trek something promotes or actually pushes this as something invisible pushes this idea of creating but group think okay and every group thing comes encroachment of social norms and get and people start doing strange things like start eating tide pods of they start eating cinnamon or the drink bleach with a drink called I mean this is why we've seen this type of thing happen over and over and over again and we've seen you know different memes and monsters and things on on you know the internet like Malmo in river mall mall every give me hell for mobile I got a mobile in my office but momo is is the perfect example this Malmo was his ugly face creature this ugly ugly you know hideous woman they were claiming was showing up in videos urging children to commit suicide right and this is happening all around the same time as bird boxing Bandersnatch in all these films I'm talking about what reminded me of Israel it would Robert highland road he said cultures sure complex of sim symptoms but a dying culture invariably exhibits personal rudeness bad manners lack of consideration for others and minor matters a loss of politeness of gentle manners which is more significant than an all out right pessimism cynicism he sings partnering on a psychographic level if you go down a greater rabbit hole in this is where I begin tonight taking you down the rabbit hole the reason why I want to do this is because I don't think anyone anyone his approach covert nineteen in this way and I'm thinking just thinking if you listen to me if you listen I have to say you're gonna be realizing something about this pandemic I can the films pandemics mass suicides pandemics of people going crazy zombies all this stuff it all starts somewhere whether it's a disease a virus a biological warfare agent or something else that could be happening something else it's far more hideous something that be contextualized and pointed to and shown as being a contributor to why we're losing our humanity what if I were to tell you what he has seen its grip is not human no it's not alive but he pretends to be and we certainly trusted more than we trust our families brothers or sisters or mothers or fathers parents we trusted more than you realize and it's having an effect on every single one of you.

"Since nineteen Fifty-nine. I've always loved twilight zone run sterling when you walk out and do that. Well, almost something. Like rod Serling, Mark Zicree with us the author of the twilight zone companion. He's a science fiction author television writer screenwriter he has been nominated for several of the industry's awards in here. He is back on coast to coast, Mark, always a pleasure, my friend. How you been really well terrific tonight. What do you think every time you hear that twilight zone? Chevrette goes up my spine. It was like like you. I saw the show when it was on on the air and on the network, and and it was one of the greatest shows ever made. It made me who I am. So it's it's amazing unique wonderful show earlier this week. I have a feature on it's called who's behind the secret door number of guests are on the show. And unlike you tonight, where I know what you I don't know who they are. I have to guess who they are in one of them was Billy movie tricked me, and I didn't get it. Right. But we wanted to talk we talked about you a little bit. And what a great talent, but he was in three twilight zones. Great episodes. He was in. Of course, the desolate. Of course, it's a good life way. Since people the cornfield closure, bad bad, man. Phenomenal plays a tip with Jack Klugman, which is great. And then long distance call which was one of six twilight zone episodes shot on black and white videotape. All the other episodes were shot on thirty five millimeter film. So that's really investing. See how different those those six look and the building was just an amazing accident four he did lost stays. And then I worked with him on Avalon space command the shooting, but he's one of a kind did you ever think when you were youngster that you would be dealing with episodes like the twilight zone and writing about it and doing books on it and things like that. Dreamed of working in television. When I was a kid the writers writing the shows when my heroes assume as a teenager. I started going to science fiction convention in conventions in meeting people like Ray Bradbury and so forth, and they became friends and mentors. So I've been just blessed by George today. I had one of the greatest experience of my life. I shot a scene for space command with Michelle Nicholson Plato Harare on Star Trek. And I met her when I was ten years old and Star Trek was on the air. That's amazing year twilight zone companion that you wrote the first edition that was back in nineteen eighty two or something. Twenty two years old came out in nineteen eighty two it's been ever since. But I I really wanted to do in new addition that would expand upon the book the nudist over one hundred pages of new materials five hundred new photos, and it's it's got links to audio and video season watch. And listen to some great stuff like some of the TV shows soiling fifties. He's also watch new interview with George k and this new interview with rod Jodi, so so the the the ability to do that was what really made me want to write the book. Good for you. And this new addition is out now, it's available from Amazon and Barnes and noble and everywhere. Good books are sold. If you love the twilight zone, you're going to love your twilight zone companions. Sure, that's exciting. What do you think of the new TV twilight zone? Because I really liked Jordan peels movies. I get out. And and we're really in the tradition of what rod Serling was up to. But the first I've seen of of the new twilight zone Syria cities hosting he didn't write a direct those episodes. I felt they were they were not as strong as his movies. Have been was rather disappointed. I'm hoping that continues you'll have much more of a personal stamp on the new twilight zone because of course in the original show. Rod Serling wrote ninety two out of hundred and fifty six episodes and self so it's very much. His show was very strong voice. Rod was inseparable from twilight zone. Well, you know, maybe you can't duplicate that maybe not. But I think Jordan writing and directing the shows and had much hand on them. They would be have that quality. That's made his film, so strong, and we'll see him as the show goes on. That will come to be the case, I'm rooting for it. I'm definitely rooting for. It is this show primarily streamed. It's on CBS all access to subscribe to it just like Star Trek discovery. CBS is basically taking some some of the more successful properties and making new versions that people have to pay to see sort of the new the new wave of televisions being delivered. It is remarkable. What's happening? Let's talk for a moment about that with Netflixing Amazon prime and things like that. Where people are paying premiums every month to be able to watch some premium shows the days of the three networks, I remember that a long time ago, that's gone. It's over now, isn't it? It's it's Donna she there's over five hundred scripted comedy and drama series on all the networks and platforms right now. Possibly know. What shows are on the air that you, and I of course, remember when we were kids that they're only three networks and to watch the show when it was on you couldn't infect Star Trek aired. I was ten years old. I recorded Star Trek on reel to reel audiotape just in case Star Trek ever showed again. So we've come a long way. I remember when originally we just had CBS and NBC pounding each other in the ratings ABC was way, distant third all of a sudden Fred Silverman took over in a BBC started coming up with some incredible programming primarily geared gearing themselves to a younger newer audience and it works for them. Netflix and Amazon time in a lot of these new platforms. They are appealing to younger people. Keep young people have no idea what network or what studio is making giving giving show. So for instance, watching Walking Dead or whatever they may not be aware where where to rigid, and that's that's fine. So it's really deliverable content. And maybe people don't even have TVs watching them on their their tablets on their phones. And so you really have to very new medium very different way of watching television really made really made ABC back in the late. Seventies was when they came out with the roots miniseries mazing show. And again, it's one of those shows that just like game of thrones nowadays, it's one of the shows that everyone was talking about everyone's watching, and it really sees the imagination of the public terrific show. Mark with cable going on. These days is anybody watching the network evening news anymore. I think most people get their news from from the internet or from their phone something things read a little capsule comment and change the days when Walter Cronkite was basically, so the conscience of America, and everyone turned to him to get for instance, when when Walter Cronkite went to Vietnam entered against the war Lyndon Johnson. If we've lost trunk we've lost the war, and that kind of power, you really don't see in these news people in the same way that used to remember back in nineteen sixty three when Cronkite broadcast, John F Kennedy's assassination. I mean in he teared up just unbelievable television. The fun part is those moments that stick with us from then now the younger people are or just anyone who's watching things on their computers tablets authenticity with the creator. And with the personalities often what what gets loyalty with the fans, Dan rather on the show who took Cronkite place on CBS. Now. Of course, he's been retired. Time moves on and it is a different world. If I actually prefer the way media works now, I wouldn't go back to writing for the studios and networks the way it was when I started writing for TV since I was twenty two years old. But I love the way things you don't think it's too much. Well, not for me because my audience gave meal from million dollars space command pilot, and I'm very direct communication with the now, and I love it. Because I went to London to meet with the BBC, and I came out of the underground subway and someone behind me on the street on the sidewalks. I love and and he knew me from. And so that's I love that stuff. We're gonna take a quick break. We will come back and talk about space command, and where you're going with that program and some others. The next hour we opened up the phone lines for all kinds of things about television including twilight zone. One.

"One of your favorite episodes absolute. So it's like, I can't tell you how excited I am for the twilight zone to be back in a relevant way. They brought it back in the early two thousands. But the creative team. Really wasn't up to snuff. It. Seems like Jordan Peele such a love and reverence for this. And in fact, his new movie that comes out March is influenced very much by twilight zone episodes. So I think it's awesome. I think it's relevant. I think we live in this weird bizarro world that Trump's president. So so I think we need this show is right. It's it's time for the twilights on the cutback. Yeah. I agree. Seeing Jordan Peele act as host and narrator also gets me really excited. Breaking what would that be that like breaking fifth dimension? Right. Right. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. I don't know. But anyway, that's going to be really cool to the kind of see him play that role. Because I always thought the host, and narrator was always the extra thing that may twilight zone more fascinating. I mean, listen beauty's in the eye of the beholder. But I always love I don't know where this neighbor comes at the end of the episode and be like what the fuck A. Rod Serling has like walked out of so many bathrooms stalls in the middle of Syria seat. Just like what's up, sir? It's fucking message for you. I of can't wait how they're going to do it just like a fucking smoke smoke bomb. Like Batman in George feels. They are narrating. Yes. So this gets me super excited again. I'm kind of curious to see what Jordan Peele take is on the current stories taking tell us. It's crazy. We I mean black mirror is this modern day version of twilight zone, so before we switch topics. How do you think Jordan Peele can make it can separate itself from black mirror because I felt like that is the perfect twilight zone. Everyone should be watching right now because of its messaging, and where we are as a society with technology. So so where do you think Jordan peels approach can go with the twilight zone, it would it be more beauties the eye of the beholder type thing or you think you might do more horror stuff with this. Well, sure, even that upset it's one that I really love like, yeah. The name of the episode is kind of like what it's about beyond that it's about the different races. Right. Like, it's always been a social commentary. And I think that that's kind of what black mirror is great as it is saying one thing over and over technology bad or sometimes good if you're saying payroll, but like other than that, it's kind of on message. It doesn't use its primis to dissect any like. Commentary the way like you'd Star Trek did right like they're famous for doing that. I in original kiss on television ever was on Star Trek. But rod Serling also not immune to that. In a lot of twilight zone early on was talking about really, really important cultural issues. So I think that how you separate as you can give it a SCI fi twist. But you know, you try to explore contemporary issues that we're having as a society mending that's the best way to do it..
