Oh, hello anon, I see you've never seen an episode of the original Twilight Zone before. You should check it out; it's a fantastic series, with numerous episodes dealing with racial oppression and class paranoia. Of course, it does so via allegory, so you might not get it upon your first six or seven viewings.

But might I suggest episodes such as "The Monster are Due on Maple Street" or the "Time Out" segment from Twilight Zone the Movie? You might educate yourself on the source material which was always, ALWAYS about progressive politics.

I think his point went over your head. They did it by allegory in the earlier versions but modern television lacks any semblance of subtlety so it will be shitty

The only episode of the 2002 version I liked is "The Pool Guy". Night Visions with Henry Rollins was a much better early 2000s anthology show since it doesn't try to appeal to teenagers like the 2002 Twilight Zone did

It made sense talking about that problems in the 50s and 60s because they were a reality.

Nowadays themes like that are used only to brainwash people to think that republicans are crazy racist people

Oh hello anon, I see you've only heard people talk about the original Twilight Zone but haven't actually gotten time to watch it. You should check it out, it's a really fantastic series, with the vast majority of episodes, particularly the beloved ones, having no identity politics or 'progressive' politics whatsoever! Such as "Time enough", "Five characters", "It's a good life", "Incident at owl creek", "A short walk", "A Big Tall Wish", "Where is Everybody", "I shot an arrow into the air" and many many more! Many MANY more! With absolutely nothing to do with race or class politics, and people actually liked those! But do avoid a lot of season 5, when the creator admitted he didn't care about writing anymore. Coincidentally, that's where a lot of the racial allegories come from! Weird, it's almost like those were easy to make but not particularly good, and thus got forgotten while other episodes stuck out. Oh well!

And I see you mentioned "The monsters are due on maple street", but clearly haven't had a chance to check it out! Because, and this might be surprising in that Twilight zone twisty way, but whoever told you this was about Class paranoia misled you. See, the entire premise is that they think someone first outside, then within their midst is hiding something and turn on them then one of their own. Remind you of anything? Not quite a racial thing, but that twist is for you to see!

Finally if you would like to see some politics that are actually progressive in the show, may I point you towards "The Obsolete Man"? It's about a dictator, so I know you'll love it, but I think the twist will actually get you thinking! I'd say he was ahead of his time, but the truth is that the 'progressive' ideas are today are usually just woefully outdated.

Enjoy!

Was Vic's character really what everyone was secretly thinking in the 80s or was he just an extreme opposite for the sake of the storyline? Because today alot of people feel the same way but are vocal about it

>>109789350
I think the only version of Monsters are due on Maple St that guy has seen in is the 2002 version where they changed the premise of it to be about terrorists. Also, that version fucking sucked.
>>
>>109788686
>The Monster are Due on Maple Street
That was about society collapsing from very small factors I mean you could argue it was also about distrust among neighbors. But you'd really have to stretch it to be about race relations.

Twilight Zone the Movie is like just under 50% a good movie. "Time Out" is so heavy handed in its message that it would legit have made Serling puke if he'd lived long enough to see it. "Kick the Can" is utter garbage and stops the movie dead and someone should have had the balls to tell Spielberg to fuck off with that Ultra Shmaltz that had no business being in a fuckin Twilight Zone movie. "It's a Good Life" is amazing on the visuals but way more obnoxious than it should be. "Nightmare at 30,000 Feet" is KINO. The Dan Aykroyd bookending segments and Penguin narrator help bring it up to 50% where "It's a Good Life" faltered.

Movie really should've been better than it was.

I spend time making them

you could at least give me some (you)'s

>>109788939
not that guy but while not always "subtle" black mirror is a move in the right direction for tv, at least in the u.s the last show that was remotely like it outside of the syfy channel in terms of creativity/whimsy/unease was literally like the twilight zone

The first one was funny, but you get diminishing returns when you reuse the same gag repeatedly.

>>109789495
>>109789448
MADOMS is kind of about politics if you look at it right, but like the obsolete man it's actually much more a condemnation of the left in todays world.

You could remake it about Aliens inventing #Metoo on Twitter and have to change very little about the original good version. It's still about a bunch of people who read in a certain book that certain individuals are ___, and when that high is gone they turn to the next one and seek to destroy the individuals life. Of course obsolete man is a much better tale to tell about that, but it could work. Not that it will because Peele knows his audience and wouldn't dare upset them by implying they're the baddies, but it could next go round if this newest retreat of progress lasts another three years without getting forgotten
>>
>>109789754
>wouldn't dare upset them by implying they're the baddies

Which is sad since the original twilight zone especially if including opening/ending narration had no problem calling out it's audience if they were the subject of the episode.
>>
>>109787639
The 80's reboot of Twilight Zone is a very good show that is on par with Tales from the Darkside. It has more diverse stories than the highly praised Tales from the Crypt which 90% of episodes involve someone getting cucked and/or murdered with nothing paranormal or unexplained happening.

Obsolete man was pretty great the first time i saw it. too bad they made serling remove a line in the closing monologue about God

>Any state, entity, or ideology becomes obsolete when it stockpiles the wrong weapons: when it captures territories, but not minds; when it enslaves millions, but convinces nobody. When it is naked, yet puts on armor and calls it faith, while in the Eyes of God it has no faith at all.

they have that faggot that made get out hosting it.
Already assuming its going to be SJW garbage.
Will not watch
>>
>>109787639
Like I've said, if they want to remake TZ, do it as a black and white retro show that looks as if it was produced during the original run with some modern CGI and make-up effects but not Alien/Blade Runner style shit. Adapt pre-existing stories, keep it 30 minutes and I'd be happy!!!FACT!!!
>>
>>109789754
>You could remake it about Aliens inventing #Metoo on Twitter and have to change very little about the original good version.

Fuck man, I would kill to see that, just to watch the media's heads explode in response. If Peele was half the crusading radical who challenges the social norm as he thinks he is, he'd go for it in spite of the consequences.

Two things the 2002 reboot did that this reboot really, really, really, rally shouldn't do:

1) Remakes of classic episodes. We already know the twist, you can't out-twist the twist, and if the episode is considered one of the best in the series and thus worthy of being retold, then you can't do it better than the original, anyway.

2) Sequels to classic episodes. The series is an anthology and the stories ended definitively. Trying to tell "what happened next" undoes the often ominous or frightening conclusions that left you on edge when the original episodes ended. Also, it means that Serling quite literally doesn't get the last word on his own stories and fuck anybody who thinks he doesn't have that right.
