The cult TV series The Twilight Zone is rumored to be returning to the airwaves under the guidance of writer/director Jordan Peele, which is good news for fans. The original edition of the show with Rod Serling makes a brief return as well this Christmas, thanks to the Webster Film Series. The organizers present a trio of classic, holiday-themed episodes for free at 7:30 p.m. Friday through Sunday (December 22 to 24). "Five Characters in Search of an Exit" is a grim slice of existential horror, while "Number 12 Looks Just Like You" is a parable about the dangers of conformity. "The Night of the Meek" might just be the best of the bunch, with Art Carney starring as a down-and-out mall Santa who finds a garbage bag that can create any gift imagined. All three episodes screen all three nights at Webster University's Moore Auditorium (470 East Lockwood Avenue; www.webster.edu/film-series).
