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:
  • "Time Enough at Last" Ep. 8, November 20, 1959: A bookworm Burgess Meredith yearns for more time to read -- then a nuclear holocaust leaves him alone in the world with lots of time, plenty to read, and one ironic twist!
  • "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street" Ep. 22, March 4, 1960: Inexplicable events cause the residents of quiet Maple Street to erupt into rioting. The residents suspect an alien invasion has occurred. If so, where are the alien monsters?
  • "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" Ep. 123, October 11, 1963: A salesman William Shatner recovering from a nervous breakdown spots a gremlin on the wing of his plane. When he attempts to alert the others, his nightmare truly begins!
  • "The Odyssey of Flight 33" Ep. 54, February 24, 1961: Flight 33 picks up a peculiar tailwind and is blown off course. After apparently correcting the problem, the flight arrives at its destination -- a billion years ahead of schedule!
