All episodes are in black and white and all run for twenty five minutes.
As with all anthology shows, the quality of the story can vary from week to week. Thus some episodes are good, some are very good, and some are absolutle classics. Such as 'Nervous man in a four dollar room,' where a man at his wits ends meets a stronger version of his own personality who tries to take over. Classic horror story 'the howling man.' 'The eye of the beholder' which has a great point to make about subjectivity. And superb comedy 'will the real martian please stand up?'.
There are no subtitles.
The only language option is English.
This is a region zero dvd, which means it will work on any player regardless of what region code that one is.
There are some decent extras. Lots of episodes have isolated music scores and audio recollections from some of those involved. These aren't freshly done commentaries, rather old interviews re-used here. These can be accessed via the special features menu of each individual episode.
Also on these are the short previews Rod Serling did at the end of each episode for the next one. These were cut from repeat screenings, so are viewable here for most for the first time since the first showing.
Disc five also has:
Five minutes worth of commercial break buffers from the show. Usually with a different sponsor on each.
A set of stills from the season.
An issue of the Twilight Zone comic in PDF format.Read more ›
Fans will be pleased. Not only does season 2 give us the infamous title track we also get Serling himself, weaving in actual episodes as he introduces each one. Many with thinking out of the box thought.
This season was a little down on the first, with 29 episodes. Also the producers wanted to cut the budget- so unfortunetly 6 episodes were shot on videotape. So you get the quality of how British shows such as Thriller, Some Mothers Do Ave Em and the Australian soap Prisoner Cell Block H. It is a process which makes the episodes look weak and untidy, it also strongly affects the sound. When a character is not near the background there voice is distant and they actually have to scream to be heard. So, it saved the producers 10,000 dollars an episode, but thank God they woke up and realised it wouldn't work. Like I say only 6 episodes are affected by this budget cut, and in fact there not bad stories anyways.
For such a great season, season 2 actually gets off to an awkward start- indeed the first four episodes are nothing to get excited about. King Nine Will Not Return can not hold the viewer for five minutes let alone 20. The Man in the Bottle is a great idea- but like season 1s Escape Clause you are litearlly pulling your hair out and how the people involved can turn a disadvantage into an advantage but fail to do so. The Hitler scene is fairly amusing though.Read more ›
Secondly, this is actually Region 0. I have provided evidence of this to Amazon.
As to the show, there have already been some excellent reviews and I'll content myself with saying I am delighted to have bought it.
Nevertheless, Season 2 is excellent and on a par with the first season. But more episodes are memorable from this season than any other, first and foremost 'The Eye of the Beholder,' one of the very best pieces of television ever produced. It is beautifully written, stunningly acted and ingeniously directed. The boxset is worth it for this alone.
But there are other wonderful episodes, such as the tight and tense 'Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room', the ever-absorbing 'Nick of Time', the wonderfully OTT 'The Howling Man', and the almost sizzling intensity of 'Shadow Play'.
The videotaped episodes are very impressive, with 'The Lateness of the Hour', 'Twenty-Two', and 'Night of the Meek' being particularly good.
And we mustn't forget the excellent fun of 'Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?' and the powerful 'The Obsolete Man', the latter featuring a superb performance from Burgess Meredith.
Although shorter than the first season, this is truly gripping stuff, and maintains the high calibre of Season One. After this, the show would begin to go downhill slightly, but for now, it was riding the crest of the wave.
