Let's look at the picks of the week.
77 Sunset Strip "The Fanatics"
Tuesday 11 at 4AM | 3C
The hip detective show heads to the country side for what is essentially a Hound of the Baskervilles mystery, with a pinch of supernatural suspense a la Cat People. What really makes this 1960 story sing is the cast of guest stars — Marlo "That Girl" Thomas, eventual game show host Bert Convy and the great character actor Victor Buono as "Bongo Bennie."
The Andy Griffith Show "Andy and Barney in the Big City"
Wednesday 12 at 8:30PM | 7:30C

The Twilight Zone "The Hitch-Hiker"
Friday 14 at 12:30AM | 11:30C
An eerie classic! Nan Adams is a woman driving across the country who keeps passing the same hitcher over and over again. The mysterious man drives her mad, and she eventually tries to run him over. We won't spoil the twist for you, if you somehow have not seen this thriller written by Rod Serling, adapted from a brilliant radio play by Lucille Fletcher.
The Time Tunnel "Rendezvous with Yesterday"
Saturday 15 at 2AM | 1C
Jump back in time with this premiere episode of Irwin Allen's adventure series. Our heroes take their first leap into the past when they hop aboard the Titanic. What could go wrong?
