The Twilight Zone: The Nick of Time


William Shatner & Patricia Breslin

Fifty-three years ago today, the Twilight Zone episode “Nick of Time”, starring a young pre-Star Trek William Shatner, debuted. This episode is iconic and well remembered for the devil-headed Mystic Seer that superstitious Don Carter (Shatner) becomes obsessed with. For a penny, the Mystic Seer gives answers to Carter’s inquiries about his future that are generic and vague, but Carter believes the machine is indeed predicting his future. His obsession threatens his marriage and future with his new wife, Pat.

If you’re looking for a Mystic Seer to predict your future, Bif Bang Pow! has created exacting replicas of the prop for Twilight Zone fans, available through Entertainment Earth.
