    1. Hi Brian!

      Well done on many of these, sir! Good job on identifications. #1 is not Twilight Zone however, though it certainly looks like it could be. Otherwise, great job and on the money!

      best,

    1. Hi Chris G.,

      Yes, that's Lost, from the pilot, part 1, with Boone checking for cell phone reception on the beach. Well-done!

  3. Wow, I thought for sure #1 was the Twilight Zone episode where the uncle makes the Robot and the niece has to care for it (I forget the title). I have no clue on the others...

    1. Chadillac:

      Boy, now that you mention it, that really does look like a clip from "Uncle Simon," on Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone. But I promise you, someone else "presented" this story...

      The confusion is that the same actress, Constance Ford, played a role on each series. (Which may give it away...)

      Keen eyes, my friend!

  4. Number 17 is from Supernatural. The CW logo in the corner helped narrow that one down.

    1. Todd,

      Yes, that's from "Long Distance Call" on Supernatural. Well done, even if you had a tiny bit of assistance (but not much) from the CW logo...

      Great job!

      best,

  5. Hmm, would #1 be "The Creeper" episode from ALFRED HITCHCOCK PRESENTS and #10 "Sorry, Right Number" from TALES FROM THE DARKSIDE?

    And dangit, I feel like I should know what #9 is!

    1. Hi Jose,

      Perfect! #1 is indeed from Alfred Hitchcock Presents "The Creeper." The actress is Constance Ford! Well-done.

      And #10 is from Tales from the Darkside, but from the episode "Answer Me." Again, that's great!!!!

      I did cover #9 not too long ago here on the blog for some cult tv blogging, if that helps...

      Great job, Jose!

      best,
      John

  6. Hi John.

    I've been offline for most of the month due to moving to a place of my own. I've now settled in and am back online and now playing catch up with your blog.

    I'm surprised some other Millennium geeks like myself haven't been able to say that number 12 is from the season one episode 588666 (KABOOM).
