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:
  • "Mirror Image" (Ep. 21, February 26, 1960): When Millicent Barnes (Vera Miles) spies her exact double at a bus station, she becomes convinced that the double is trying to take her place. Fellow passenger Paul Grinstead (Martin Milner) thinks she's crazy -- at first.
  • "Dust" (Ep. 48, January 6, 1961): A man is about to be hanged for drunkenly running over a little girl in a decaying town. But when the girl's anguished father (Vladimir Sokoloff) flings "magic dust" into the air, a change comes over the squalid village.
  • "Five Characters in Search of an Exit" (Ep. 79, December 22, 1961): A clown, a hobo, a ballet dancer, a bagpipe player and an army major are trapped together in an enormous cylinder. They don't know who they are or how they got there. But when the major tries to escape, they finally learn the truth.
  • "Ninety Years Without Slumbering" (Ep. 132, December 20, 1963): Sam Forstmann (Ed Wynn) believes that he will die if his grandfather clock stops. When the clock does begin to wind down, Sam must face his deepest fear.
