11 Classic Twilight Zone Episodes That Could Be Improved By Colorization

11. The Midnight Sun

CBS

In the near future, the world has begun moving closer to the sun, and everyone is suffering the effects of extreme heat. (On the bright side, it's surely all the fault of whatever politician the viewer hates the most). After several encounters with various looters, mad dogs and Englishmen, our heroine's painting of the New York skyline, complete with enlarged sun, begins to run, as the oil paints melt. She wakes up to find that the whole thing was just a vicarious dream. In the real world, the earth is moving farther away from the sun, and everyone is freezing to death. (but it’s still your least favorite pol’s fault).

HOW COLORIZATION COULD HELP: Not much. The film noir style suits this episode extremely well. However, various shots of the sun in the sky, as well as the one shot of the melting painting, really cry out to be colorized, along with as much orange as can be fit into the shot.
