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:
  • "Escape Clause" (Ep. 6, November 6, 1959): A hypochondriac (David Wayne) exchanges his soul for immortality and indestructibility. When life soon becomes very boring, his unsuccessful attempts to find new thrills bring unexpected results.
  • "Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room" (Ep. 39, October 14, 1960): Ordered to commit a murder he doesn't want to perform, a small-time hood nervously looks in the mirror and sees the man he could have been -- confident, strong...and determined to get out.
  • "The Midnight Sun" (Ep. 75, November 17, 1961): The Earth's orbit has suddenly changed, drawing ever closer to the sun and promising eminent destruction. Or has it? Who really knows how the Earth may be doomed?
  • "A Kind of Stopwatch" (Ep. 124, October 18, 1963): The world's biggest bore and most avid talker gets a magical stopwatch that can stop everything except him. But when he misuses it, a wonderful conversation piece becomes a real party killer.
