From an unsettlingly persistent hitchhiker to a malevolent slot machine, The Twilight Zone's first season did plumb "the pit of man's fears." One forgets how moving the series could be. Three of this season's most memorable and enduring episodes are the poignant and primal "stop-the-world-I-want-to-get-off fantasies, "Walking Distance," "A Stop at Willougby" and "The Sixteen-Millimeter Shrine," in which desperate characters seek refuge in a simpler past. Serling's few stabs at comedy ("Mr. Bevis," "The Mighty Casey") have not aged well, but the series finale, "A World of His Own," starring Keenan Wynn as a playwright whose fictional characters come to life, has a brilliant capper. The episodes are more deliberately paced than one might remember. Less patient younger viewers might be anxious to get to the payoffs, but once they settle into the rhythm, they will savor the literate writing and the performances by such veteran actors as Ed Wynn, Everett Sloan, and Ida Lupino, and newcomers such as Jack Klugman. The extras, including the unaired version of the pilot episode, "Where is Everybody?", audio commentaries and recollections, and a Serling college lecture, truly take this six-disc set to another dimension. --Donald Liebenson
This series is very entertaining.
It is my joy to tune in again after all these years.
And it still grabs my attention. Read more

|Dear Amazon: Please don't allow reviews before release dates!!!||
I have to agree with Matthew. The forum is a place to ask questions or post comments before or after a release and the like. Reviews should be on the actual product, production values and content, not to belly ache for a percieved slight or grudge you have for a company.

You would be surprised what people say on this site, you are correct, Amazon is also just as unreliable. Thanks for the link. I'm very interested in seeing the pilot.

|Should I get rid of my Standard Definitive Set||
Should you get rid of it? If you're a big fan then yes because all-new commentaries plus the old ones from the DVD set are included. Plus the first season box contain two unaired pilots never before released. It's worth the upgrade.
