Coming into the “new” year, somebody who’s someone has their own traditions leading up to the newest calendar. For the past couple of years, there was a tradition that began to sweep not just all across America, but all around the globe. Every New Year’s Eve, a handful of television networks broadcast what seems to be Rod Serling’s original The Twilight Zone––this year, fortunately or unfortunately, is no different from the others.

The only thing changing is that SYFY will get on the bandwagon and stream episodes of the sci-fi series between the 31st of December to the 2nd of January. To be honest, 2020 has been so rough that people will actually be glad to watch the series. It’s as if they’re living their own versions of The Twilight Zone.
Given that the sci-fi series is a true classic of the genre, people might be in the mood to stream it but some people obliged themselves not to––no blaming here, though.
With the New Year marathon running 24 hours a day, maybe it’s time to get out of Netflix for a while and just give yourself some classic pampering. I mean, there’s no way you’ll be able to tune in to every episode, but the fact that it’s on TV and SYFY makes it a lot easier for you to think what to watch during the wake of 2021. Nostalgia isn’t the worst way to celebrate the upcoming year, especially when nostalgia is the very thing that makes us feel alive during the quarantine.
