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:
  • "Perchance to Dream" (Ep. 9, November 27, 1959): A man (Richard Conte) is terrified of falling asleep for fear he might die. His pursuer? A mysterious vixen he meets in his dreams! The first non-Rod Serling script of the series.
  • "The Hitch-Hiker" (Ep. 16, January 22, 1960): Alone on a cross-country trip, Nan Adams (Inger Stevens) has a blowout. Surviving the incident, she gets back on the road--only to see the same hitch-hiker everywhere she looks!
  • "King Nine Will Not Return" (Ep. 37, September 20, 1960): WWII Captain James Embry (Robert Cummings) finds himself next to a crashed plane in a vast desert. Where is his crew? And why are futuristic jet planes flying overhead?
  • "Shadow Play" (Ep. 62, May 5, 1961): Trapped in a recurring nightmare, a man (Dennis Weaver) tries to persuade those who are sentencing him to death that the whole scenario is not real. Will they ever listen?
