Who'd have guessed that the power going on and off in a small town could generate so much hysteria? In this memorable Season One mystery (which we strongly suspect served as the inspiration for Stephen King's The Mist), a young comic nerd's (Jan Handzlik) suggestion that a widespread power outage was caused by aliens turns a group of neighbors against one another instantaneously, each member of the Maple Street crew suspecting one after the other of being a martian impostor.

What should've provoked a collective laugh instead sparks series of fights that lead to murder. When we are finally clued in as to who's been behind the entire ordeal, it's a tough call as to whether to point a finger at the literal or figurative monsters.
