That alone is a staggering amount of supplemental features for any viewer, but the season-three Blu-ray also offers all of the extras from the season-three Definitive Edition, including commentaries from Billy Mumy, Leonard Nimoy, Cliff Robertson, and Jonathan Winters, who reads Johnson's alternative ending from "A Game of Pool." Audio interviews with producer Buck Houghton, directors Lamont Johnson and Buzz Kulik, Rod Serling's guest appearances on The Garry Moore Show (to promote "Cavender"), and a clip of his post-Zone hosting job on The Liar's Club are among the many highlights of this exceptional set. --Paul Gaita

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.
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:
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.Read more ›
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.
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".Read more ›

|Not diggin' the Blu-ray set price for season 3.||
The price will drop from market place sellers. You are right Rushead 75 bucks is high. Seen it today for 65. Probably will go down even further. the hardest part is waitin'. Still waiting to get season 2, still seems high. Probably will break down and get season 2 this weekend.
