Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Tony Nigro
Though cancelled in 1964, The Twilight Zone remains television's most treasured anthology program. The brainchild of writer/narrator Rod Serling -- no doubt inspired by the pulp comics, novels, and sci-fi films of his youth -- the series introduced its own special brand of weirdness to viewers on October 2, 1959. Five years followed, and The Twilight Zone went through the show business wringer as network executives tried to squeeze more profits from the already successful show. Experiments ranged from cutting costs with six episodes shot on videotape to dropping "The" from the series' title -- but no matter what, rave reviews continued, and every week loyal fans tuned in to enter the infamous dimension of sight, sound, and mind. Episodes included here are:
  • "The Trade-Ins" (Ep. 96, April 20, 1962): An elderly couple visit the New Life Corporation, hoping to transplant their personalities into youthful artificial bodies. But they can only afford one.
  • "Sixteen Millimeter Shrine" (Ep. 4, October 23, 1959): An aging former movie star (Ida Lupino) lives and dreams in the past. Despite the efforts of her agent (Martin Balsam), she refuses to leave her screening room -- until she disappears!
  • "Mr. Denton on Doomsday" (Ep. 3, October 16, 1959): A has-been, drunk of a gunslinger (Dan Duryea) finds that his fast-draw abilities can actually be restored by drinking a magic potion!
  • "The Lateness of the Hour" (Ep. 44, December 2, 1960): Dr. Loren enjoys the faultless robot servants he has invented. His daughter (Inger Stevens), however, feels imprisoned by them -- and soon learns how right she is!
