    Additional Features

    Complementing this enhanced journey to the middle ground between light and shadow is an exceptional collection of new supplemental features that, when combined with the already fine material assembled for the DVD Definitive Editions, should make this season 2 offering a must-have for Twilight Zone and Rod Serling devotees. Chief among the items making their debut on the Blu-ray is "Nightmare at Ground Zero," a 1953 episode of Suspense penned by Serling about a scientist who plots to murder his wife at a nuclear test site; it's an extremely effective thriller that would have fit well into the TZ canon. Part 2 of historian Marc Scott Zicree's 1978 audio interview with cinematographer George T. Clemens--the architect of the series' distinctive look--is also included, and it's accompanied by a chat from the same year with makeup artist William Tuttle, the man responsible for some of the show's most nightmarish images. Zicree is front and center for most of the 25 new commentary tracks, on which he's joined by the likes of Matthew Weiner (Mad Men), Joseph Dougherty (thirtysomething), comic book legends Len Wein and Marv Wolfman, original TZ scripter George Clayton Johnson and historians Scott Skelton and Jim Benson, Gary Gerani, and Jon Burlingame.

    Fifteen of the exceptional Twilight Zone radio adaptations are also included, which feature Jason Alexander, Jane Seymour, Michael York, and Fred Willard. And all of the extras offered on the DVD set, including commentary by original episode stars Don Rickles, Bill Mumy, Dennis Weaver, and Cliff Robertson, as well as isolated music scores, interviews, and promos, are submitted for your approval. The season 2 Blu-ray is truly the definitive final word on the stellar second season of this iconic show. --Paul Gaita

    5.0 out of 5 stars Twilight Zone - Season 2 - Another Great One March 25, 2005
    By Ned
    Format:DVD
    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".

    5.0 out of 5 stars Re-enter the Zone! March 22, 2005
    Format:DVD
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Finally the one to buy April 13, 2005
    Format:DVD
    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.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Videotaped Episodes February 28, 2006
    By F. Nava
    Format:DVD
    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.

    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

    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.
