The Obsolete Man

I don’t usually watch ‘The Twilight Zone’. But I overheard  an episode today,that grabbed my attention so fully that I couldn’t help but stop and take notice.

‘The Obsolete Man’, set in a scary dystopia in which the written word is banned, and being Obsolete is punishable by death, warns against totalitarianism. It is borderline genius, and scripted with so much simplicity and so much thoughtfulness that I had to share it.

The script itself is worth reading.

But the episode in full can be found here.
