The Herald in Scotland pretty much said what we were all thinking this weekend, announcing the inauguration of Donald Trump like a four-year episode of The Twilight Zone.

TV writer Damien Love framed the future president s election, inauguration, and impending presidency as what it truly is: a surreal experience that should be fictional, but isn t. It definitely seems like the more we think about the past few months, the more bizarre they seem, but nothing s outside the realm of possibility in alternate reality science fiction.

Hell, there s a Black Mirror episode about a literal cartoon character who runs for office, convinces his followers to riot, and then forms a police state.

Pictures of the TV listing made rounds on Twitter, including a share by nerdy hero and equal rights advocate George Takei.

Here it is in full:

After a long absence, The Twilight Zone returns with one of the most ambitious, expensive and controversial productions in broadcast history.
