In my mind I associate Twilight Zone with Thanksgiving because the old antenna channel would have a marathon of it around that time and I’d watch it every year. The Talking Tina episode was probably my least favorite as a kid because I really loved dolls. This radio drama adds a lot of context to the story: the stepdad seems to have some really sadistic tenancies, and the daughter is in therapy for emotional neglect. It’s not like the doll is the hero in this situation, but I could see her as, like, the personification of a child’s defense mechanism against abuse. Still super creepy tho.
