The Slice

This date in “Twilight Zone” history

The series began its run on Oct. 2, 1959, with an episode called "Where is Everybody?" It starred Earl Holliman (above) as Mike Ferris (no relation to the Spokane family).

Sort of a cross between a last-man-on-Earth story and a study of the limits of our ability to endure beng alone, it's a bit muddled and not especially satisfying. But, not counting the pilot shown in 1958, it was at least the start of something big.
