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:
  • "A Most Unusual Camera" (Ep. 46, December 16, 1960): Two thieves (Fred Clark and Jean Carson) discover that a camera they have stolen takes pictures of the future. A gold mine in greedy hands. But not every photo develops as might be expected.
  • "The Jungle" (Ep. 77, December 1, 1961): Returned from a business trip to Africa, Alan Richards (John Dehner) scoffs at the voodoo lion curse that was placed on him. Yet soon he will sense that something is chasing him through the streets of New York City and hear the sounds of the jungle.
  • "The 7th Is Made Up of Phantoms" (Ep. 130, December 6, 1963): A trio of National Guardsmen conducting war exercises near Little Big Horn in 1964 encounters evidence that another battle is going on -- one that occurred in 1876.
  • "Uncle Simon" (Ep. 128, November 15, 1963): Barbara Polk (Constance Ford) has taken care of her detested Uncle Simon (Cedric Hardwicke) for 25 years, waiting impatiently to inherit his wealth. But his will stipulates that she must take care of his latest invention, a robot with an unnervingly familiar personality.
