Yeah, wrap your head around that one!
My wife and I were watching The Waltons the other day. Yeah, you heard that right–I was watching The Waltons. It’s really a very good show–even today. Tame, to be sure, but extremely well-written and well-acted.
Anywho, as my wife and I were talking about Earl Hamner, Jr.–whose name really had a familiar ring to it besides it being from The Waltons–we did some Internet searches…and found that (I’ll be damned!) Earl Hamner, Jr., had written eight Twilight Zone episodes!
Ergo, John-Boy–who is obviously the character for Mr. Hamner, Jr.–left Walton Mountain and ended up writing for Rod Serling!
Just thought you should know.
