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:
  • "Hocus-Pocus and Frisby" (Ep. 95, April 13, 1962): Andy Devine is Frisby, a loud-mouthed braggart whose boasts attract the attention of aliens. Perhaps he should have read the story about the boy who cried wolf before embarking on his greatest adventure.
  • "Of Late I Think of Cliffordville" (Ep. 116, April 21, 1961, 50 min.): William Feathersmith (Albert Salmi), a bored, wealthy businessman, gets a chance to go back in time and start over, armed with all the knowledge he's acquired--an arsenal that's not as powerful as he thinks.
  • "Mr. Garrity and the Graves" (Ep. 152, May 8, 1964): Jared Garrity (John Dehner) makes a living as a resurrecter of the dead in the Old West. He doesn't make money from people who want to see their loved ones again, but from the many townsfolk who will pay to keep the dead buried.
