anthology series that aired on NBC from 1985 to 1986, and on the USA Network from 1987 to 1989. The series is an updated re-imagining of the classic 1955 series of the same name.
This episode is called: "final escape". My favorite twilight zone episode ever, until I discovered it was a Alfred Hitchcock Presents episode.
Here's the still available version from the fifties: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQVG0-OXKXI
