4.0 out of 5 stars Better than most modern crap 16 July 2005
By Drake-by-the-Lake - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
You would think after forty years, producers might have learned a thing or 2 about the importance of good writing. But I have discovered from frequent disappointment that most movies are not worth even five minutes of my time.

Okay, so these "Twilight Zone" episodes are black and white. The shows are old-fashioned and reflect yesterday's fears. You can even say that the sets, filming, and special effects are funny when they don't intend to be. You can also point out that the women appear to be stereotypical Hollywood women.

EVEN SO! There are some gems in this collection. The writing is--with many exceptions--generally, GOOD. My personal favorite is "The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank."

Compare any Twilight Zone episode to a modern mess of a movie called "Primer", and you will see that color film does not really matter all that much!

The price, $80, is a bit dear; I suggest buying USED, because lookit, it's a DVD, the quality's the same no matter how many klods have viewed it. The price/performance ratio influences my rating here.

I remember fondly curling up in the sofa to watch the TZ on TV, back when I was a young whippersnapper. I always looked forward to this show above all others on that wasteland we know as television. How can you not like such a cool exploration into fringe areas and the unknown?

Collection 1 box-set features some of my favorite episodes :
The hitch hiker, nightmare at 20,000 feet, kick the can.
and episodes that I've never even seen but loved none the less like the invaders. (an episode with no talking but still manages to serve as an example of shear brilliance.)
Collection 1 arrived early and in perfect condition. Since then it has made me very happy.
I could gush on and on forever about how much I love the twilight zone, and I believe it goes without saying this is a great thing for anyone remotely interested in psychological/thriller/creepy/Classic "B" style/(golden-age of )sci-fi sub-genre to own (episodes will absolutely turn into conversation pieces*) besides everyone needs something erie in their life Right?

*The odysssey of flight 33 (comes in this set) is the most rediculous episode I've seen to date. SOO many twists and turns frankly it's hilarious. I enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Experiments with the paranormal become American classic 24 Aug. 2003

The Twilight Zone's brilliance, innovation, and penetrating insights into man's nature and fallibility shine through as much now as when first introduced in the Cold War era. Whether an episode reflects man's confrontation with the fantastic, the known world but with a wrinkle, or himself, it comes across captivating if not in instances compelling. As with Mark Twain's stories, the hard lessons communicated are rooted in a positive orientation toward people, which makes them palatable. And the packaging into 25-minute episodes makes it very convenient to pop into the DVD player when that amount of free time presents itself.
The Twilight Zone can be an acquired taste. Try a sampler, then steer by your reactions as you go. Seriously consider this as a gift for those on your list who have everything and/or are difficult to buy for.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most outstanding television series from my childhood 28 Sept. 2004
By Thomas Lapins - Published on

I have spent $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$'s on Twilight Zone videos from Columbia House. And I will happily buy all five 'Collection' series after viewing this first collection. Too see these episodes all in pristine condition, with the little extras, is a thrill.

Even the Art Carney episode shot on video tape is enhanced to the point of perfection. The video copy from Columbia House was poor, and left me not interested in seeing it again. This restored copy brings not only the image to a silken pristine level, but elevates the story, which on viewing it again, deserves the treatment given here.

As a child, 'Twilight Zone,' 'The Outer Limits' (which has also been beautifully restored and packaged), and 'One Step Beyond' captivated my young mind. But it was the whole presentation of 'Twilight Zone' that intellectually stimulated my very young mind. I was glued to the television in the early sixties and find myself equally entranced forty years later. The high quality of the storylines pass the test of time.

Not only do the quality of the storylines bring 'Twilight Zone' to an unmatched level, but the actors chosen, bring an integrity and credibilty often lacking on television. Here fantasy meets reality in the stark nakedness of human frailties and private demons that seep from all our psyches. We're all unmasked a little in each show. We're all a little unnerved by the truth revealed about this thing called 'Man' and 'Humanity.'

Life does not leave much television time for us. But when I do have the time to relax and enjoy television or dvd's, I want it to be not only entertaining, but engaging and time well spent. And 'Twilight Zone' is the perfect collection to fill that bill. I highly recommend this collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars OUTSTANDING!! 22 Dec. 2003

I don't know what your favorite TV show is but mine has ALWAYS been "The Twilight Zone". It bothered me that for years we could get "Gilligan's Island" re-runs but there were never any of "The Twilight Zone". I hadn't seen an episode for over 35 years so I finally decided to check out their availability on DVD (after all, my teen-age daughter has all of the episodes of "Friends" on DVD). The price was a bit steep but I came into some extra money and took the plunge. I have been completely satisfied with this package of 36 episodes on a set of 9 DVDs. After I ordered it, I talked them up to my 11 year old son who looked forward to watching them with me. He was impressed as well. I mention that because today's youth seem overly focused on modern technology and these episodes left a lot to your imagination.
"The Twilight Zone" was a unique TV series that mixed excellent writing (mostly by Rod Serling, himself, in the early seasons), good acting, challenging social issues, and stories that were unsettling if not downright scary. Many of those episodes stayed with me decades after I had seen them; far more than from any other TV show. I watched "Outer Limits", "The Alfred Hitchcock Show" and others. They were very good as well but "Twilight Zone" was always a notch above. Even now, knowing how many of these episodes would turn out, I was impressed by the quality of the product. What surprized me was how excellent they all were. There were some that were in a class by themselves but all were worthwhile. "Monsters are Due on Maple Street" was always my favorite and it is in this collection along with such all-time favorites as Burgess Meredith's classic "Time Enough at Last", William Shatner in "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", Jack Warden in "The Lonely", "To Serve Man", and Billy Mumy in the haunting "It's a Good Life". However, my favorite episode now is "Walking Distance" in which Gig Young discovers why you can't go home again. Many of the messages in these stories are timeless.
I saved up some money and am ready to order the next set. My son is as anxious to see them as I am.
