There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call...The Twilight Zone.

The Twilight Zone first aired in 1959. Its episodes featured stories of the bizarre and unexplained, blended with humour and often with an unexpected twist to the tale. Created by Rod Sterling, its eclectic mix of fantasy and sci-fi has helped to define it as one of televisions most original and celebrated series.

Also included in the boxset is an episode guide booklet and Special Edition postcard

Special Features include:-

Remastered from new high-definition film transfers using the original camera negatives and magnetic soundtracks Audio commentaries by Earl Holliman, Martin Landau, Rod Taylor, Martin Milner, Kevin McCarthy, Ted Post and William Self. Vintage audio recollections with Burgess Meredith, Douglas Heyes, Richard L. Bare, Buck Houghton, Anne Francis and Richard Matheson Rod Serling audio lectures from Sherwood Oaks College

Features all 36 episodes from season One.

This is surely one of the greatest television shows ever created. In 1959, Rod Serling began The Twilight Zone and took millions of viewers on a journey into the land of imagination, and never has a television show excited the imagination like this.

The first series is the show's finest and sees some superb and powerful episodes, such as the touching and emotional 'Walking Distance' in which a man returns to the days of his childhood, the humourous 'Escape Clause', in which a hypochondriac makes a deal with the devil, the gloomy and unnerving 'Judgment Night', and the masterpiece of encroaching fear that is 'And When The Sky Was Opened.'
The amazing thing about the Twilight Zone was its ability to play with mood and instill different emotions, such as the truly creepy 'The Hitch-Hiker', in which a woman travelling cross-country is confronted time and again by the same ominous figure on the roadside. 'Time Enough at Last' is a classically ironic episode showing Serling's writing at its best. Charles Beaumont's 'Perchance To Dream' is fabulous, as is Richard Matheson's intriguing 'The Last Flight'. The clever trickery of the stylish 'The Four of us Are Dying' shows just how far ahead of the times the show was.
Powerful episodes such as 'The Purple Testament' and 'The Monsters Are Due On Maple Street' are balanced with the fun 'A World of Difference' and 'The Fever', the truly terrifying 'Mirror Image' and 'The After Hours' are together with such sentimental episodes as 'A Stop At Willoughby' and 'A Passage For Trumpet'. Superb stuff.
At last The Twilight Zone comes to DVD properly - remastered and with Special Features, this sublime series finally gets the release it deserves. The Twilight Zone is timeless, clever, fun, evocative, thought-provoking, terrifying, funny, gloomy and touching. A true tribute to the genius of Rod Serling.

First, let me say that Amazon did have the best value on offer for this DVD special box set, and that it's definately worth buying it.
I was already familiar with some of the best episodes of the series, when they were shown on the Sci-Fi Channel to celebrate its 40th anniversary. That's when I really got hooked!
This beautifully presented 6 DVD box set comes with a very comprehensive book detailing each of the episodes from the entire series (not just the first series). It is marvelously documented, illustrated and written.
The only thing that could have been done better is the sound quality of some of the commentaries added to the episodes, as well as the cursor highlighting when you're browsing through the episodes: the light blue color can't be seen very well over the white titles.
Apart from these minor issues, I give full marks for this beautiful collection. The episodes featured are absolutely breathtaking. I can't wait for the next series to come out.

A very entertaining series, but the producers of this DVD set really needed to try harder. The fuzzy video quality is just about acceptable - the awful sound (much worse than the black and white episodes from the 60s, and easily the worst I've heard on DVD) is not. Even with bad originals, I'm sure something could have been done to clarify the dialogue by tweaking the frequency ranges in the soundtracks. In the sleeve notes, carelessness is also evident. Titles are printed in black on a dark blue background: unreadable!

As I say, the quality of the stories and performance is generally great: it's just a pity the producers didn't take more care producing the DVDs.

I am a huge fan of anothologies horror and sci fi so when I bought this set and watched it I became hooked. I am ashamed to say that I had only ever seen the John Landis's The Twilight Zone movie. This series is revamped from the Rod Serling original series which I believe ran for 5 series. It was again revamped for a short run in 2002. For those expecting the kind of stories told by the excellent Tales from the crypt will probably not enjoy this too much as it has more light hearted stories than rip your gutts out stuff. Its more sci fi and fantasy than horror but believe me when I say its fun stuff to watch often smart and funny and the Christmas story is very heartwarming even for stone hearted folk. The transfer is what you would expect for its time so its a miracle at the quality they have managed. Watch out for well knowns like Bruce Willis, Elliot Gould, Helen Mirren and more. Wes Craven has a part in the first disc of stories and there is a story by Stephen King in there too that as I write this I havent yet seen as I am only on disc 4. So far its a joy to own, cancelled after only 3 series due to then poor ratings (in the 80's I guess this wasnt what people wanted, Dynesty anyone?) it is a worty buy and a bargain. My only issue is that I would have loved this set to include a retrospective on The Twilight Zone, that would have been awesome I suppose there is time enough for that yet...here...now...somewhere in The Twilight Zone!

The sound quality on these episodes is so poor that quite often i have to stop and replay the scene to understand some of the dialogue. It is in MONO, I'm disappointed that no-one made the effort to improve the audio.
