The Trump Twilight Zone

After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history.
Scotland's Sunday Herald had just the right view of the Trump Inaugural Zoo. The only sane way to look at the coming reality is to see it as a long, particularly disturbing episode of The Twilight Zone.

It's a Good Life
A six year-old emotionally stunted child with godlike powers controls an entire country. He constantly demands people tell him how good he is and everyone must surrender to his slightest whim lest he point his stubby finger at them and banish them, or worse.

Nightmare at 20,000 Feet
A man traveling peacefully looks out the window and sees a grotesque monster tearing everything apart. He tries to alert others to the danger but nobody believes him until it is too late.

To Serve Man
A strange creature with a bad combover arrives and announces he is the savior of mankind and will make America great again. His promise is too grandiose to believe but, in time, people accept his seeming benevolence. His plan to serve man is fake, his real goal is to consume us all.

He's Alive
A creepy little loser is approached by a shadowy figure who teaches him to enthrall crowds and encourages him to be bloodthirsty and ruthless. In the final scene the figure is revealed to be Steve Bannon Adolph Hitler and he exclaims, "We ARE immortal."
