    Default Prophetic and utterly depressing Twilight Zone Episode

    I recently saw an episode of the old original Twilight Zone series that dealt with physical beauty being above everything else. The title was "Number Twelve Looks Just Like You". Though the episode was aired in the early 1960's, the episode takes place in the year 2000. And boy did they nail it.. The ending for me was extremely depressing.

    Everyone gets operations to look beautiful like everyone else.
    She didnt want to cause she liked to look different than others.
    Eventually everyone drove her to get it.
    She now looks like everyone else & likes it.

    I also like the episode where everyone looks like a pig & they cant fix the ugly girl (who actually looks pretty) to look that normal way too.

    True, it is an old plot device and I've seen it deployed more times than I care to remember. But for whatever reason this episode struck a chord. Once physical beauty was attained by the masses they felt no need for Literature, Art, Music, and especially Individuality.

    ^ im sure they were though. any animal in the animal kingdom is programmed to mate with the other animals who show signs of health and fertility..humans are no exception.
