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:
  • "Where Is Everybody? (Pilot Version)" (Ep. 1, October 2, 1959): Earl Holliman stars as a man on the edge of hysteria in an oddly deserted town. This alternate version of the series' premiere episode, which sold the show, features a brief intro by Rod Serling and a different opening title sequence and narrator.
  • "The Eye of the Beholder (a.k.a. "The Private World of Darkness")" (Ep. 42, November 11, 1960): Outcast from society because of a hideous deformity, a troubled woman desperately undergoes an operation to alter her appearance in this rarely seen, alternately titled version of the classic episode.
  • "A World of His Own" (Ep. 36, July 1, 1960): Keenan Wynn is Gregory West, a noted playwright who discovers that he can make anything appear or disappear just by describing it--like his irritable wife or even Rod Serling.
  • "A Thing About Machines" (Ep. 40, October 28, 1960): Mr. Bartlett Finchley (Richard Haydn) despises any sort of machine, and he'll experience a new kind of terror when he learns the feeling is mutual.
