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:
  • "Elegy" (Ep. 20, February 19, 1960): Three astronauts land on a remote asteroid where everyone is frozen in place in the midst of their activities. The only one who moves is the caretaker (Cecil Kellaway), who reveals that they are in an exclusive cemetery where the deceased's greatest wishes can come true.
  • "The Thirty-Fathom Grave" (Ep. 104, January 10, 1963, 50 min.): A mysterious clanging sound is heard within a submerged submarine -- 20 years after it was sunk by the Japanese during World War II. A sheared periscope? Or ghosts of the drowned crewmen? Chief Bell (Mike Kellin) reveals a guilty secret that has tormented him ever since that horrible event.
  • "A Short Drink from a Certain Fountain" (Ep. 131, December 13, 1963): An aging man (Patrick O'Neal) desperate to keep up with his much younger wife (Ruta Lee), tries a highly experimental youth serum. To his wife's delight, he is restored to vigorous young manhood, but the worm soon turns when the serum continues its work....
