Apparently, all you need is shoe polish and a Scarface level terrible accent and you're Cuban. Or as Phoenix made up: Canadian. They didn't say what country it was so he made up his own story. Frank also adds more fuel to the future podcast The Divorce Podcast. Viva The Twilight Zone! Viva Loitering In Wonderland.

Another in the line of Redux episodes in which Frank gets to chime in on a season 1 episode. This was also in his season 1 top 5 episodes so Phoenix puts him on the spot to explain himself. www.LIWstudios.com
Our sponsor for the week can go fuck themselves. This episode is about billiards, not swimming pools. Anyway, we talked forever about how good this episode is despite being minimalistic. It's literally two guys playing a sweaty game of forever pool. Phoenix reveals that Jack Klugman is his favorite TZ actor to appear in more than 1 episode. www.LIWstudios.com
People pass by her house. Get it? They're dead. He's dead too. She's also dead. Everyone is goddamn dead. Lincoln is dead too. He was not the last casualty of the Civil War though. That's stupid. Anyway, watch The Others. We also introduce our newest eventual podcast, The Divorce Podcast. Starring a single man: Frank Linkz. www.LIWstudios.com
The best way to survive a nuclear attack is to have a flimsy door and pieces of shit for neighbors. That shelter wouldn't have survived a thunderstorm let alone an atomic blast. This is a great freakout episode of The Twilight Zone, so gather up your children, watch it with them and then head over to your neighbors and begin tearing the place apart with the kind of great decision making skills that only a scared mob can make. www.LIWstudios.com
Frank loved this episode because it featured a plane. Phoenix loved this episode because if featured an insane person. There is something for everyone in The Arrival. No, not the Charlie Sheen movie. Not the Amy Adams movie. The Twilight Zone episode about a suicidal plane detective and his Buffalo plane. www.LIWstudios.com
During The Mighty Casey Redux episode, Frank read from the least professional newspaper in existence: The Simi Valley Acorn. Phoenix then suggested they make it a regular segment. Obviously that isn't going to happen so here is the next best thing; Phoenix reads 5 articles from what is basically a real life version of The Onion. He speaks at a breakneck pace so that makes the actual reading difficult to do. Plus... he did it completely sober which is an unusual departure from the usual TZ review. Truly, The Simi Valley Acorn resides deep inside The Twilight Zone. www.LIWstudios.com
Two stars two people in a two dimensional story about two people looking for two love. Lisp joke. I guess so. Anyway, we barely discussed the episode but instead did everything we could to sound like horrible people. We should learn our lesson in The Twilight Zone. We also talked about how this years New Years TZ marathon was a bit of a random letdown. www.LIWstudios.com
In the first of our redux series, Frank joins Phoenix to discuss one of the most boring baseball stories ever put to film. A robot playing baseball is somehow made boring in this tale of the Hoboken Zephryrs, who sit 20 games behind 4th place even during spring training. It just doesn't add up. We also discuss how The Mighty Casey was so mighty that he just had to mow down 2 people with a handgun at a bar in 2004. Yes, true story. www.LIWstudios.com
Season 2 is an amazing mess. The best episodes of the series are blended together with the worst comedic episdoes of the series. A man is terrorized by his razor. An elderly gay man must come to terms with his struggling sexuality and his psycopathic fantasy of destroying the human race. A man stares at the radio so much that he transforms back to a time where he was still elderly. Well, at least there isn't a story about a rapist impregnating his victim like in season 1.
Well we did our positive top 5 episodes and we felt sick after so we though we'd end 2017 properly. By choosing our least favorite 5 episodes from season 1 and 2. We had more in common this time around. www.LIWstudios.com
Season 2 was a much easier endeavor. Frank actually managed to pick just 5. One of them involved a claymation dinosaur. That's the only hint you're getting. Figure it out. www.LIWstudios.com
Listen as two grown men bicker about their top 5 Twilight Zone episodes from season 1. One man has his top 5 locked. Another has his top 5 be a top 8 with mulitiple number 1's. It doesn't make sense. Don't try to think about it so hard. It'll kill you. Anyway, it's our first episode where we aren't tearing an episode apart so enjoy. www.LIWstudios.com
In this touching tale from a possible future, a librarian that is a glutton for punishment is sentenced to death only to narrowly kill the person that sentenced him to death. But nah. Sounds like we hated it but this is Phoenix's second favorite episode.
If you have 7 people in a room when there is only supposed to be 6 and the theory is that one of the people must be a Martian, having a side theory that one of the 7 was replaced by the Martian doesn't make any sense. You still have an additional person. At any rate the confusion doesn't stop there. Why did the cops say they would ride ahead on the bridge only to ride on it at the exact same time as a heavy fucking bus? They deserved to die.
What happens when you give an elderly sociopath a superpower? Obviously only mass extinction and cross-dressing can be the result. Seriously, fuck this episode. They tucked it away at the tail end of season 2 in the middle of the greatest run in show history, hoping we all didn't notice how shitty it truly was. Rod... we noticed. Stop writing comedies...wait...you're a dead person. I keep forgetting. I feel ashamed. The only way to fix this shame is to wish every single other person on the planet into extinction. That'll solve all of my problems. www.LIWstudios.com
Imagine you're stuck in a dream where you die at the end and you're desperately trying to convince those around you that they're making huge mistakes. This is what Phoenix feels like all the time due to people in public making rules that can only prove that we humans hate ourselves. Anyway, this is a strange podcast because it was recorded in two sections because Frank was sick so we had to take a 3 day break between the commercial break. This. Is. Our. Favorite. TZ. Episode. Ever. www.LIWstudios.com
This episode will turn you to soup. You can eat that soup in your man zoo for a bunch of crusty, old, white men to stare at while you don't speak for a year. Somehow this is an amazing episode. Seriously. www.LIWstudios.com
Stealing money and essentially time traveling to the future is a stupid idea. Guess these guys never heard of inflation. Also if you have the technology to use gases to keep yourself alive for 100 years in a glass casket....just sell your idea and avoid robbing trains. www.LIWstudios.com
In this episode man defeats a rim. Defeats it by about a hundred yards I'd say. Then he is transported to 1961, he gets modern medicine for his dying child and then he goes back over the rim only to find the skeletal remains of his family, untouched by modern man. What? That's how it should have ended. Why does the Twilight Zone keep insisting time travel is a two way street? www.LIWstudios.com
