Every year the Syfy channel plays a Twilight Zone marathon over New Year’s. But this year they’re starting the festivities early. The first episode airs at 7pm this Wednesday, December 30th. We’ve compiled a schedule so you can catch your favorites, along with links to Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon for all you cordcutters.
The good news? This year Syfy is airing every single episode—all 156 of them, in order. The bad news? There’s a little interruption to the marathon when they air two hours of WWE Smackdown on New Year’s Eve.
All times are Eastern/Pacific, and some of the descriptions are spoilery (not to mention ridiculous). But if you’re going to complain about spoilers for a 50-year old TV show, you can go twilight yerself.
