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:
  • "What You Need" Ep. 12, December 25, 1959: A two-bit thug thinks he's found the key to a better life in an old sidewalk salesman who has the uncanny ability to tell people what they need the most.
  • "What's in the Box" Ep. 144, March 13, 1964: Joe Britt William Demarest sees his secret revealed and its horrible consequences on his just-repaired TV set. He frantically tries to alter his fate by confronting his wife Joan Blondell.
  • "The Mirror" Ep. 71, October 20, 1961: After a poor, but ambitious Central American farm worker Peter Falk overthrows his country's tyrannical leader, he believes he sees assassins everywhere. A look in the mirror reveals his most dangerous enemy.
  • "The Old Man in the Cave" Ep. 127, November 8, 1963: A mysterious guardian helps a tiny community survive after the Bomb destroys much of the earth. But spurred on by the bullying outsider Major French James Coburn, the townspeople become an angry mob bent on learning the secret of "The Old Man in the Cave."
