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:
  • "A Stop at Willoughby" (Ep. 30, May 6, 1960): Advertising exec Gart Williams (James Daly) cracks under the pressures of his job. But, in this classic episode, he dreams about a peaceful town named Willoughby.
  • "Twenty-Two" (Ep. 53, February 10, 1961): Liz Powell (Barbara Nichols) is terrified by a recurring nightmare involving the number 22. Her doctor (Jonathan Harris) reassures her that it is just a bad dream, yet Miss Powell is soon to learn differently.
  • "I Dream of Genie" (Ep. 114, March 21, 1963, 50 min.): George P. Hanley (Howard Morris) never had much success in life. But when he rubs a magic Arabian lamp and a genie (Jack Albertson) emerges to grant him one wish, he imagines all kinds of possibilities.
