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:
  • "The Mighty Casey" (Episode 35, June 17, 1960): A broken-down baseball team soars when a new player, a human-looking robot, pitches shut-out after shut-out. He must be altered to become more human, but how will this affect his superhuman skills?
  • "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up" (Episode 64, May 26, 1961): State troopers follow tracks from an unidentified flying object to a diner where they try to determine which of the seven bus passengers stranded inside is really a Martian.
  • "The Changing of the Guard" (Episode 102, June 1, 1962): Donald Pleasence is Professor Ellis Fowler, forced to retire after 51 years of teaching. Feeling his life was worthless, Fowler is startled by the ghostly appearance of former students.
  • "Come Wander with Me" (Episode 154, May 22, 1964): A singer (Gary Crosby) journeys to the backwoods to find authentic folk songs. He hears a great ballad...a timeless tune that will have a very personal meaning for him.
