Hello World!

Over at my site, B5TV.COM, I posted a news item earlier today about Twilight Zone. This is because the first half of tonight's episode stars Bill Mumy (best known as Will Robinson in Lost in Space, and Lennier in Babylon 5).

Pretty unremarkable news, at first glance. What is remarkable is that it's a sequel episode to an original Twilight Zone episode from 1960. Over forty years later, Mumy is reprising the role he played back then as a child. Also reprising her role is Cloris Leachman, his on-screen mother.

How many TV shows can say they created a sequel forty years later, and with the same cast and characters? I think that's a pretty impressive feat, and if you're in the US maybe you should hang around after Enterprise to give it a go tonight. It certainly sounds intriguing.

If you want to find out more, including images from the two episodes forty years apart, visit my report here.
