Product description

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 shadows, 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.''

Season 4 of this iconic series moved from half an hour episodes to eighteen hour length TV episodes, including appearances by Dennis Hopper (He's Alive) and Robert Duvall (Miniature).

Released digitally remastered for the first time in the UK, this 5 disc set contains all episodes from this fourth season as well as special features:

Rod Serling promo for Next Week s Show

The famous Writers' School Promo Spot with Rod Serling

Photo Galleries and DVD-ROM: Twilight Zone Comic Book (Adobe ® Acrobat reader required)

Synopsis

Enter the fifth dimension with The Twilight Zone, explore the depths of the unknown in Season Four of Rod Serling's groundbreaking series. Funny at times, heartbreaking at others, The Twilight Zone entertained audiences for years (and inspired many remakes and spin-offs) with its consistently compelling and thought-provoking plotlines. Serling appears at the start and finish of each episode, acting as the viewer's guide through a world of alternate realities, and unlocking a door to a place where anything can happen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having enjoyed the first 3 seasons of the old Twilight Zone show, I moved onto watching this 4th season, which is unique for having the 1 hr episode format. But having watched another great old school show The Outer Limits (a mixed bag of quality episodes) while this format can add depth to the stories, it also can drag it out with lots of dialogue to compensate the extended run time. Unfortunately this season for some reason has mostly been the latter, with characters repeating each others' dialogue, characters repeating in dialogue the events that just happened (or will happen in the story) and even talk to themselves when they were meant to be calm everyday people.
Another shame is that this season really lacked the mystery and surreal beauty of the earlier seasons (and many episodes in this season don't end in tragedy, which is usually appropriate for moral fables and nightmares). Much of the episodes, especially the sci fi ones, come off as being from The Outer Limits. This season even rehashes earlier concepts and themes.
Fortunately the only episodes I quite enjoyed are Valley of the Shadow, The New Exhibit and On Thursday We Leave for Home. All of those have pretty good stories (although New Exhibit is predictable, it is pretty dark stuff as Twilight Zone episodes go), and On Thursday's dialogue and pacing are not forced and its social themes are quite original to the series, kind of a precursor to Star Trek.
However there is one episode that I thought the filmmakers really missed an opportunity to create a true classic: The Mute. They should've presented the episode as if we're experiencing the same thought process as the telepathic girl.

When Twilight Zone entered its fourth season, changes took place. Producer Buck Houghton moved on, and Serling's involvement in the show was considerably less. The series also became made up of 18 hour long episodes. Unfortunately, this experiment never really caught on and the next season reverted back to half hour stories.

The fourth season has had something of a bad reputation for many years, but it seems that people are beginning to realise that some of the episodes worked extremely well at the expanded length.

The episodes that work well: 'In His Image,' about a man prone to psychotic tendencies and memory problems, who discovers a terrible truth; 'Death Ship,' featuring the excellent Jack Klugman and Ross Martin, about a space ship crew who discover their own dead bodies; 'Jess-Belle,' Earl Hamner Jr's finest episode, about a young woman who seeks out a potion in order to keep her beloved; 'Miniature,' an originally non-syndicated episode starring Robert Duvall as a shy, sweet man who falls in love with a figure from a dolls' house; 'The Incredible World of Horace Ford,' in which a toy designer returns to his childhood - literally; 'On Thursday We Leave For Home,' a powerful story with a superb central performance from James Whitmore; and 'The Bard,' a lighthearted satire about a writer who summons Shakespeare to help him with his plays.

The rest of the episodes either fall flat or remain average. 'The Thirty-Fathom Grave,' 'He's Alive,' 'No Time Like The Past,' 'The Parallel,' 'I Dream of Genie,' and 'Of Late I Think Of Cliffordville' are episodes that just don't work, and suffer from the expanded length.

The remaining episodes are pretty average - all full of good ideas that don't come off so well in execution.

Twilight Zone Season 3 is certainly well worth getting. It is the only time the original episodes appeared in the one hour format. In some cases the more expansive approach allowed for a deeper exploration of the theme. "Miniature" for instance, is a complex psychological study which benefits from the opportunity to show more elaborate plot sequences than would be possible in a half an hour. Valley of the Shadow" is a marvellous episode as good as any of the classic half-hour episodes. Sure, some of the sci-fi sets look a bit dated, but the theme is anything but! The conflict of conscience within the hero and the mutual attraction between him and the girl is completely believable as is the resolution. It was interesting to see a young Scotty from Star Trek in the early sequence!

Sometimes one can lose as well as gain. "In His Image", has a theme similar to "The Lonely" from Season One in that it treats the idea of an artificial intelligence and the possibility that it has a reflexive intellect and thus can engage in self-reflection and possess a sense of identity. The context, however, is very different. The one hour format allows for a more extended treatment of the theme but "The Lonely" has the greater emotional impact. It still represents a very strong start to the Season.

One episode that makes many viewers uneasy {including myself} is "Mute. There are quite good reasons for this. The story begins with a prologue which creates an absurd scenario for future events involving a "pact" to raise children as pure telepaths {without the power of speech, as events later show}. Despite concerns by some members of the pact about violating the human rights of their children in pursuing such a course, the group charges on with their plan.
