Twilight Zone (1985)

Since this extraordinary series has been mentioned several times in other threads, I felt it was time for one of my own. For me this series was kind of a key experience in terms of horror and even the memories of a few episodes still give me goose bumps. Do you also know the series? And if so, what are your favorite episodes?
Mine are and were:
"A bit of peace and quiet" - a troubled housewife finds an amulet in the garden with which she can stop time. The ending [spoiler] when it halts the world during an incipient nuclear war, and the last shot is a rocket frozen in the sky [/ spoiler], was probably one of the scariest I've ever seen.
"Nightcrawlers / Don't sleep!" - A Vietnam veteran with a very special gift turns a normal diner into hell. Brilliant episode.
Other highlights were about the black man (what was I afraid of), the fate of the world, little green men in Ireland and witches - in the adaptation of Stephen King's story "Omi". Too bad that the series is no longer on TV or at least a decent DVD of it!

There was a movie from> Twilight Zone <, right? 'Unknown shadow lights' or something. Anyway, I really liked it, especially the first and the last spot.

Exactly! The film is really not bad either, and I really like the second and last story too. However, the first story has a slightly bland aftertaste, as the main character (Vic Morrow) and a child were literally torn apart by the rotor of a falling helicopter during filming. The whole thing of course drew a rat tail of lawsuits ... ugly and sad story.
The last story: It is based on Richard Mathesons KG "Nightmare at 20,000 feet" or the first film adaptation in the series Twilight Zone in the 60s. The passenger who sees the gremlin on the wing was played by William "Cäpt'n Kirk" Shattner at the time.
Still, the series from the 80s was a tad better!
