Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The land of imagination 4 Sep 2005
Format:DVD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars sublime box set 20 Mar 2006
By Nanou
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great content, awful presentation 5 Aug 2006
Format:DVD
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.

Format:DVD
I really like this and think it is an excellent remake and although it is probably darker overall(not in a blood and guts kind of way), I don't think that it disrespects Rod Serling's original classic in anyway. I remember seeing a few episodes of this as a child in the 1980's but not that many, it was the first version that I saw and I think that it used to be on really late so that would propably explain it. I have been collecting the original version boxsets and really liking them so I couldn't resist buying the colour versions aswell as I really like anthology shows anyway plus it gives me a chance to see all the ones that I missed.

This season one colour boxset has twenty four episodes but it actually has about fifty nine stories, some episodes have two stories and some have three, some longer than others, roughly between ten and thirty minutes long, although don't be put off by the ten minute ones as they are short but effective. Like the original this is a good mix of everything from scary to weird. I know this might upset some fans of the original but I have to say that I think that the music and opening title of this version is better than then original, I find it very and I mean very creepy, it samples the original theme tune but adds all kinds of weird noises and images plus there is that one second glimpse of Rod Serling himself which I find very haunting.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Twilight Zone (1980s) - Series 1 (DVD)
The Twilight Zone season one comes with a full English soundtrack. If you like Outer Limits you should like this. The stories are similar and are still fresh today.
