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.

It all kicked off in 1959 with Season 1. The first season was a little confused with its title intros, which change a bit over the course of the season. And don't go expecting the infamous title music and the appearance of Rod Serling at the beginning of each episode. Both ideas didn't kick in until the second season.

Season 1 has its highs and averages- for there are no duds in this 36 episode pack. Even when you come across episodes that don't 'bring it' so to speak, the acting and dialogue more than makes up for it. On the production side you will be amazed. Ok so we're talking over 50 years ago- but no stone has been left unturned. The production, unit, locations and sets are absolutely top class. The Twilight Zone never feels like low budget and is of course off set by some of the finest actors of its age, not to mention writers and directors.

The series kicks off with Where Is Everybody? a bold attempt that doesn't quite work, though the DVD does include an alternative version. One For the Angels, is a great first example of the 'magic' of the show and is a treat. Mr Denton on Doomsday mixes a drunk with the wild west, topics that would be repeated on the show throughout its five seasons on air. The Sixteen Milimeter Shrine calls to most of us, with a message of nostaligia and a clear danger of not living in the present. Walking Distance is a much loved episode. Although Rod Serling refers to one scene as the scene that killed the episode- I agree with him, still a heartfelt story though.

Escape Clause is fair enough but has too many plot holes to be taken seriously. The first real classic of the show is The Lonely- about a man left millions of miles from Earth (known as jail) and with a female robot as company.
