It is, simply, astonishing. Why? Start with digital transfers from the original camera negatives and magnetic tracks. Add commentaries for the majority of episodes. And multiple commentaries for several episodes. Add Rod Serling's college lectures used for commentaries. Add interviews with cast and crew members. Add isolated msic scores. Add intros and outros. Add network promo spots. Add the TWILIGHT ZONE radio dramas and comic books...I could go on but why bother? If you are a TWILIGHT ZONE FAN, you won't be disappointed.
Many of the episodes involve some kind of tragic irony, or a cruel twist of fate at the end. In "Time Enough At Last", Burgess Meredith is a bookworm who tries to find time to read, but to no avail. In "The Hitchhiker", a young woman tries to escape from a stalker, only to find that...she can't escape. "One More Pallbearer" is about a man who hides in a bomb shelter as the world ends. In "The Silence", a man bets that he can remain completely silent for a specified period of time; he wins the bet, but still loses.
Some episodes have subtle or obvious, mostly liberal, progressive themes. "The Obsolete Man" is about an old man on trial for being obsolete in a totalitarian state. In the fantasy episode "A Quality of Mercy", Dean Stockwell is a World War II soldier who physically turns into a Japanese and gets the enemy's point of view. "The Encounter" tackles racism head on, and it's a rarely shown episode where a Japanese-American (George Takei) is locked in a room with a virulent bigot. I recall at least a couple of episodes involving Adolf Hitler. And quite a few episodes promote tolerance of various kinds.Read more ›
WARNING TO NEW VIEWERS:
(1) DO NOT for ANY REASON watch OR listen to the main DVD Menu! Just hit the mute button until the images go away. REASON: The main menu stupidly gives away the plot twists for several classic episodes, spoiling the surprises for those who haven't seen them.
(2) When you choose an episode, DO NOT look below the top left corner; just hit "Enter" or "Play." REASON: The chapter selections for a number of episodes GIVE AWAY PLOT TWISTS with their descriptions and pictures.
(3) Do NOT read the liner notes included in each season box! Same reason as above: Pictures and descriptions give away plot points, to the point where fans like me say, "Why on earth did they show that picture? It completely gives away the entire episode!"
I'm flabbergasted that the folks that put these together set the episodes up this way. I played many episodes for my older children, but the DVD menu had ruined the endings for several episodes for them.
So, to summarize:
List of Episodes for all 5 seasons-
Episode 1: 'Where is Everybody?'- Earl Holliman stars as a man on the edge of hysteria in a deserted town. Despite the emptiness, he has the strangest feeling hes being watched.
Episode 2: 'One for the Angels'- A Salesman cleverly eludes death. But if he lives a little girl must die in his place. Only the salesman greatest pitch can save her.
Episode 3: 'Mr. Denton on Doomsday'- A drunk of a gunslinger finds his fast draw abilities can be restored by drinking a magic potion.
Episode 4: 'The Sixteen Millimeter Shrine'- an aging former movie star lives and dreams in the past. She refuses to leave her screening room until she disapears.
Episode 5: 'Walking Distance'- Martin Sloan is plays a frazzled executive who learns that you can go home again after he steps back in time and meets his mom his dad and himself.
Episode 6: 'Escape Clause'- A hypocondriac exchanges his soul for immortality and indestructibility.
Episode 7: 'The Lonely'- A covicted murderer incarcerated on a distant asteroid and is dying of lonliness.
Episode 8: 'Time Enough at Last'- A Bookworm yearns for more time to read, then a nuclear holocaust leaves him alone in the world with lots of time, plenty to read and an ironic twist.Read more ›

Not sure exactly how to tell which Blu-Ray edition I have if there are more than one release in 2012 (that's all I see on the outer slipcase). I ordered the "multi-format" ASIN B007I8KXQ8 and that looks like what I got. The other "blu-ray" edition says Nov 1 2001, but those... Read More

The new release version is an actual set with 5 season boxes slipped into the box.
What you're referring to was a "bundle" that Amazon put together - buy all five seasons and they'll offer the bundle at a reduced or special price.
Amazon is not the distributor nor maker of these, so any... Read More
