Product Description

The Complete Second Season of Rod Serling's Classic, Groundbreaking Series Exploring the Fantastic and the Frghtening. Spectacular New Digital Restorations Featuring Unsurpassed Video and Audio Clarity! Episodes include: King Nine Will Not Return; The Man in the Bottle; Nervous Man in a Four-Dollar Room; A Thing About Machines; The Howling Man; Eye of the Beholder; Nick of Time; The Lateness of the Hour; The Trouble with Templeton; A Most Unusual Camera; The Night of the Meek; Dust; Back There; The Whole Truth; The Invaders; A Penny for Your Thoughts; Twenty-Two; The Odyssey of Flight 33; Mr. Dingle, the Strong; Static; The Prime Mover; Long Distance Call; A Hundred Yards Over the Rim; The Rip Van Winkle Caper; The Silence; Shadow Play; The Mind and the Matter; Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?; The Obsolete Man.

The middle ground between light and shadow just became a whole lot sharper and detailed with this stellar five-disc set, which compiles the entire second season of Rod Serling's classic television series, The Twilight Zone, and gilds the whole package by including a treasure trove of supplemental material. TZ's second season (1960-61) is a stand-out in the series' history thanks to its sheer number of memorable stories; among the episodes that have achieved pop culture landmark status are the chilling "Eye of the Beholder" (a disfigured woman undergoes surgery to appear more "normal") and "The Silence" (Franchot Tone wagers that Liam Sullivan cannot silent for a year); "The Invaders" (Agnes Moorhead is pitted against tiny space travelers), "Long Distance Call" (Lost in Space's Billy Mumy converses with a deceased relative on his toy phone), and the more light-hearted "Night of the Meek," in which department store Santa Claus Art Carney gets a chance to fulfill the real St. Nick's duties. As always, the combination of sharp, intelligent scripting (mostly by Serling, but with notable contributions by Charles Beaumont, Richard Matheson, and George Clayton Johnson) and superb casting (guest stars include Cliff Robertson, Dennis Weaver, Burgess Meredith, William Shatner, John Carradine, and Don Rickles) produces television that remains as thought-provoking and entertaining today as it was over 40 years ago.

Though The Twilight Zone has received numerous home video releases over the years, the aptly titled Definitive Edition is arguably the finest presentation of this series to date. Each of the episodes have been digitally remastered from original camera negatives (even the episodes filmed on videotape look good) and magnetic soundtracks; Serling's previews for upcoming episodes and advertising "billboards" (sponsor spots) have also been included, as have commentaries by Rickles, Weaver, Robertson, Shelly Berman, and other performers. Clips of Serling on The Jack Benny Show and in conversation with Mike Wallace, audio interviews with cast and crew members by Twilight Zone Companion author Marc Scott Zicree, radio adaptations of classic episodes, and even the script for "Twenty-Two," complete with Serling's notes, round out the set, which belongs in the collection of anyone who's ever been enthralled by this landmark series. Now, if only the same treatment could be afforded to Serling's other anthology program, Night Gallery--Paul Gaita

I enjoy watching on my Kindle with no commercial interuptions.
The picture quality is excellent and the sound is cristal clear (notice how some episodes looked like they were filmed with a handycam).
I live watching the reruns when I was a kid, now when I watch the show it brings back great memories.

The Complete Second Season of Rod Serling's Twilight Zone is now on DVD. This second season contains all 29 episodes on 5 disks. It is full frame and is about 900 minutes.

I don't have a favorite season; there are great episodes from each. I am really enjoying entire seasons being released at once.

1) King Nine Will Not Return - A World War II captain wakes up in the desert, next to his crashed plane.

2) Man in the Bottle - A shop owner finds an old bottle which contains a genie which grants him 4 wishes.

3) Nervous Man in a Four Dollar Room - A smalltime hood is ordered to commit a murder and when he looks into a mirror he sees himself with courage.

4) A Thing About Machines - A writer believes the machines in his home are against him.

5) The Howling Man - A man finds refuge in a monastery during a storm and finds an unusual prisoner.

6) The Eye of the Beholder - A woman goes through treatments to make herself normal so she can fit into society.

7) Nick of Time - A newlywed becomes obsessed by a fortune-telling machine when they are stranded with car trouble.

8) The Lateness of the Hour - A scientist creates robot servants and his daughter feels a little unusual.

9) The Trouble with Templeton - Templeton is an aging actor who longs for the old days when his wife was alive.

10) A Most Unusual Camera - A couple have stolen a camera that takes pictures of events just a few minutes into the future.

11) Night of the Meek - A drunkard Santa Claus discovers a bottomless sack of toys.

12) Dust - A peddler tries to sell a condemned man's father a bag of "magic dust".

If you hopped on board for season 1's definition edition, you probably don't need much convincing to pick this one up either. It's a great deal cheaper than season 1 (though there are less episodes in this season) but packs a lot of punch considering the high benchmark set for the show's debut season. There are a great number of gems with very few clunkers sprinkled in.

Among the episodes collected here are two of the series' most poignant social commentaries in "The Obsolete Man" (with Burgess Meredith) and "Eye of the Beholder" (probably the most infamous episode in all of TZ lore). To make things more varied, the second season also brought us some lighter fare like "Mr. Dingle the Strong" and "A Penny for Your Thoughts". We also get the TZ debut of Shatner in "Nick of Time" and its companion piece "The Silence", both notable episodes for containing no real supernatural elements yet keeping very much in the spirit of the Twilight Zone. And some of the best-loved episodes of all, the flawless "One Hundred Yards Over the Rim" (featuring audio commentary with star Cliff Robertson, Oscar winner for "Charly" and 'Uncle Ben' in "Spiderman"); "Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up?" (a brilliant ensemble piece driven by atmosphere); and "Shadow Play" (one of the most overlooked episodes in the series).

Season two also brought about budget restraints, which lowered the total number of episodes and caused several to be shot on videotape. Few other shows could have gotten away with this approach, and the videotaped episodes include a heartwarming Christmas-themed "Night of the Meek" that sees Art Carney becoming Santa Claus and "Twenty-Two", which suffers through probably the worst special effect in the history of television. If you haven't seen it; I dare not spoil it for you.

This set lives up to its billing. The Definitive Edition, seasons one and two (with the rest come shortly), finally delivers the quality this series deserves. The video reproduction is stunning and the extras fill out a perfect package. I've seen some reviews suggesting that this edition will quickly be replaced by yet another improved edition. Don't believe it. With this set, the old reels and their caretakers have put up about all they can deliver--outstanding video, reproduction in original broadcast order, a detailed book-length episode guide and commentary with the season 1 package, and, finally, Rod Serling introducing "next week's" show. Until DVD's are replaced as a delivery vehicle, this edition will be as good as it gets.

The Twilight Zone was picking up speed by Season 2. By this time, CBS began to see that it was a great show, which all of us knew since the beginning.

The only problem that plagued Season 2 were the six episodes that were videotaped instead of filmed due to budget reasons. These episodes were "The Lateness of the Hour," "Static," "The Whole Truth," "Night of the Meek," "Twenty-Two," and "Long Distance Call" (you can actually view the difference when compared to the remaining episodes).

With this Definitive Edition, it is obvious that the videotaped episodes haven't held up well visually and audibly. Many of the scenes from these episodes either jump or fluctuate. The audio is also hard to hear when characters are away from the camera, thus, away from the microphone.

However, don't let these episodes sway the fact that The Twilight Zone was a great show and even with these few episodes, Season 2 is a great addition.

Question if You Own Season 2 on Blu-Ray
I ordered this before release date and I received it on release date (November 2010) with a slipcover. Looks like you got the shaft on the slip cover. Complain and tell Amazon you didn't get the slip cover to see if they will send you one.

Episodes Shot on Video
Most of the second season was shot on 35mm film. For this transfer, just like the first season, they went back to the original 35mm negatives and created all new transfers. However, there is one caveat. Six of the episodes in this season were shot on videotape ("Static," "The... Read More

Hi Def setbacks
I don't see these as setbacks. Personally, seeing what you describe adds to the experience and I can easily use my imagination to remain within the drama. On the other hand, some of the acting has a lot to be desired, which has nothing do to with high definition -- something I didn't notice... Read More
