“The truth can take on many different forms … depending on how you look at it.”

Greetings travelers, The Fifth Dimension tumbles further into Jordan Peele’s The Twilight Zone. The latest stop is Iglaak, Alaska (pop. 936), where the fabric of truth unravels as extraterrestrial danger looms in a tale titled “A Traveler”.

Our subject in this episode is Yuka (Marika Sila), an Alaskan state trooper working a job she hates for a boss she loathes (Greg Kinnear). But when a special party crasher (Steven Yeun) arrives for the town’s annual Christmas festivities, Yuka has to look inward and decide whose side she’s really on.

As always, co-hosts Editor-in-Chief Michael Roffman, Editorial Director Matt Melis, Eleanor Edwards, and Samantha Kuykendall are your guides through the latest harrowing chapter in the Zone.
