I have watched Twilight Zone, in Japanese, on Okinawa.
Time Enough was indeed a great episode. I wondered why he didn't walk to his optometry office and sort through the glasses until he found a pair that matched him, but it was Twilight Zone, after all.
My favorite episode was the one with Bill Shatner and the gremlin fooling with the airplane. I can't remember who played the gremlin, but he was great.
People pooh-pooh Bill now, but Shatner was and is a good actor.
Funny, but Twilight Zone is still as good today as it was then. Just shows that great writing counts. Here is a partial list of stars who got their big breaks on Twilight Zone. Notice that Shatner, Nimoy, and Takei did, and later all three united on Star Trek.
Burgess Meredith, Suzanne Lloyd, David Wayne, Joseph Schildkraut, Jeanette Nolan, Ross Martin, Keenan Wynn, Ida Lupino, Beverly Garland, Martin Balsam, William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, George Takei, Dean Stockwell, Martin Landau, Ann Jillian, Robert Duvall, William Windom, Peter Falk, Dennis Hopper, Agnes Moorehead, Elizabeth Montgomery, Charles Bronson, Jonathan Harris, Bill Mumy, Jack Klugman, Cloris Leachman, Richard Basehart, Barbara Eden, Pat Boone, Inger Stevens, John Hoyt, Russell Johnson, Lee Marvin, Donna Douglas, Kevin Hagen.
