Fear Is Fear

Watching the DVDs of old Twilight Zone episodes with my teenager, I'm struck by how one out of every three or four shows seems to deal with nuclear armageddon or alien invasion. I keep finding myself explaining to my daughter how real worry about those things (at least the former) were prevalent parts of reality back in the 1950s and '60s. Now we just have swine flu and terrorism to worry about. (Great show, nonetheless.)
