Loved The Invaders - I ranked it 2nd. I'd never seen it before, and I was rivetted.

The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street was the highest ranked episode on the IMDb out of those which were nominated. It came 4th - and the 3 above it weren't in this Hall of Fame (but perhaps will be in the next!) I ranked it 6th, and considering that most of these episodes were very entertaining that meant I really liked it. An unforgettable episode.

2 - The Invaders (4th)
3 - A Stop At Willoughby (=11th)
4 - The After Hours (=7th)
5 - Wordplay/Dreams for Sale/Chameleon (18th)
6 - The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street (1st)
7 - And When the Sky Was Opened (3rd)
8 - A Game of Pool (10th)
9 - Time Enough At Last (6th)
10 - Walking Distance (9th)
11 - The Encounter (16th)
12 - The Midnight Sun (13th)
13 - A Nice Place to Visit (15th)
14 - Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up? (=11th)
15 - Nothing in the Dark (2nd)

17 - One for the Angels (=7th)
18 - A Passage for Trumpet (17th)



It's time to have some fun
Oh rats, this is over... I just this moment read through the reveal and get to the end and it just ended.

Loved this HoF idea!
Really I've been in a ton of HoFs and this was one of the funnest I've participated in. Congrats to Tongo and a big thanks to SpelingError!



Wow! Glad you all liked that one.

Thanks for hosting, SpelingError. I've been meaning to watch more of this series for a long time and this was a great way to do it.

What other series would work for a Hall of Fame, I wonder? The Outer Limits, maybe? Star Trek? Maybe not since you sort of need familiarity with the characters to truly appreciate any given episode. Golden Girls?

Hell yes! To The Outer Limits and Star Trek?, Pass on Golden Girls, ha.

Tongo do you want to host one of those? I'd be in and there's enough interested people to make it a fun event

Great job, everyone! Speling, thank you for hosting!

I'm really pleasantly surprised that people enjoyed Nothing in the Dark so much. I think of The Invaders as a "classic" TZ episode, and Nothing in the Dark is more of a sentimental favorite.
