Season 3 and the episodes from this classic series have once again been given the whole super-duper treatment. Good work guys!!

By now the Zone's quality had slipped a little. Still,eps like "Nothing in the Dark", "The Dummy", "To Serve Man" and "Five Characters in Search of an Exit" remain unforgettable and still influence tv/ movies today.

Features in this package include:

-commentaries from William Windom, Leonard Nimoy, Cliff Robertson, Lois Nettleton, and Billy Mumy.

- teasers for next week's shows

- isolated soundtracks

- audio recollections from a bunch of contributors

- Serling's Night Gallery previews for next week's eps

It's all good and dare I say it...gets better with Season 4 and the hour long episodes.

I'm totally enjoying the remastered "Definitive Season" releases with all the included bonus features. #3 here looks like another winner with a crisp digital transfer! Kudos to Image Entertaiment and CBS DVD for an excellent job!

Meanwhile, I've got a stack of 3-4 episode DVD's and 2 episode VHS copies looking mighty lonely. For everyone in this situation, I think a good home might be a local library or even better a senior living centre. That would be a good demographic to donate to.

Season three of the definitive edition contains the 37 episodes, and also the following bonus material on DVD five:

1. The famous writer's school promo

2. SciFi Channel Twilight Zone marathon promo

3. Rod Serling's Night Gallery promo spots

4. Season 3 billboards

5. Season 4 photo gallery

6. The Twilight Zone comic book in .pdf format (which seasons 1 and 2 have and presumably 4 contain also--I haven't viewed season 4 yet)

There are also commercials for Colgate, Wildroot Cream Oil, and Oasis menthol cigarets

The Night Gallery promo spots include:

1. Promos

2. Bumpers

3. Teasers

4. Introduction

5. Station IDs

In addition to the above bonus material, the DVD also contains the following 4 episodes:

1. The Dummy

2. I Sing the Body Electric

3. Cavender is Coming

4. The Changing of the Guard

This DVD has a little more bonus material than the bonus DVD for season 2, which has five episodes. Season 1 has the most bonus material, since it consists of 6 DVDs with the last one all bonus material. Seasons 1 and 2 are both five DVD sets (and probably season 4 too, I just haven't looked at it yet).

I also noted that the season 3 episode introductions differ slightly from seasons one and two. The woman's eye image has disappeared (which didn't appear in the first season), and now there is a receding spiral pattern. In the second season, Serling's voice introduction is worded differently, which seems to be preserved in the third season. Also, the Twlight Zone title explodes or shatters noiselessly at the end into little fragments before fading away now.

12 of 12 people found the following review helpful By Ed Uyeshima HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on March 8, 2007
I finally made my first purchase from Amazon's Unbox Video Downloads just to try the service and am happy to report a solid customer experience. For $1.99, I purchased and downloaded one of my favorite episodes of "The Twilight Zone", and it took about twenty minutes to download through a broadband connection. I don't think it's the most ideal way to see full-length motion pictures, but for a 26-minute classic TV program, I think my 17" LCD monitor makes for a suitable viewing experience, and the video quality of the downloaded file is clean.

Aired on September 15, 1961 as the show's third season opener, the episode is a Cold War fantasy appropriately called "Two" about the last two survivors on earth, a man and a woman, after an apocalyptic world war in 2109. Written and directed by TV veteran Montgomery Pittman, the simple plot revolves around the complicating fact that he is an American infantryman and she is an invading Russian soldier. Like two feral animals, they glare at each other among the debris of a deserted town destroyed by the war. He even knocks her out her after she aggressively throws pots and pans at him. The reality of their solitary existence, however, gradually dawns on them, especially after they see an evening dress in a shop window inspiring her to speak her only word of dialogue - "Prekrassnyi" - the Russian word for "lovely".

What really makes this episode memorable is the unlikely casting. Two years before she twitched her nose on "Bewitched", a brunette Elizabeth Montgomery, looking appropriately ravaged and sporting a deadly ray gun, plays the untrusting Russian soldier with surprising fierceness and vulnerability. The American is played by perennial tough-guy Charles Bronson, fresh from "The Magnificent Seven".
