Episode 3 of The Twilight Zone series is titled, “Mr. Denton On Doomsday.” The show first aired on CBS, on October 16, 1959. This episode was written by Rod Serling and directed by Allen Reisner. The show stars Dan Duryea, Martin Landau, Jeanne Cooper and Malcolm Atterbury as Henry J. Fate. It was the first Twilight Zone episode to be rerun.

In “Mr. Denton On Doomsday” we get a look at a man use to be a master marksman in the old west. He is now a drunkard and the town laughing stock. That is until “fate” comes to town.

This episode was a little slow for me but I did appreciate the character arc of Mr. Denton and the importance of Henry Fate to the stories theme.

HFH Score: 3.9/5
