Apologies to T.J. Hooker, but outside of Captain Kirk, William Shatner's greatest moment on television is perhaps "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet." He plays Robert — well, friends like us call him Bob — a passenger on a flight in The Twilight Zone.

The episode consistent ranks as one of the greatest of the series. It remains one of the most memorable television tales in history. No wonder it has been remade.
