Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Though cancelled in 1964, The Twilight Zone remains television's most treasured anthology program. The brainchild of writer/narrator Rod Serling -- 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. As a program that correctly billed itself as one "of shadow and substance, of things and ideas," The Twilight Zone left indelible tracks -- not to mention unforgettable theme music -- and created stars both on-screen (William Shatner) and off-screen -- directing vets include Don Siegel (Invasion of the Body Snatchers, Dirty Harry), Richard Donner (The Omen, Lethal Weapon), and Ida Lupino (The Hitch-Hiker). This collection includes 35 famous episodes, including "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet," "Kick the Can," "The Hitch-Hiker," and "The Lonely."

I am only 14 years old but I have come to love and admire the Twilight Zone immensely. This set will provide hours of entertainment for long-time fans or new-comers to the series. The show AND its creator (Rod Serling) is an insperation to us all.

More than nostalgia - a pioneering triumph of one act dramas staged for television - never to be replicated.

This is a fine collection. How much better T.V. would be if Hollywood still had such writers. Serling is great in his apperances. An unsuspected wealth of famous actors show up here.
