All Season 4 Episodes were 1 HOUR LONG, thus there is 18 total hours of aired episodes. Which is literally the same amount of hours as 36 half hour episodes. That is why price is the same as the other seasons - THE SEASON 4 SET WILL CONTAIN AT MINIMUM THE SAME AMOUNT OF BLU-RAY DISCS AS SEASON 3, IT MAY EVEN HAVE 1 MORE DISC DUE TO IT BEING MORE HOURS THAN SEASON 3!
KUDOS to the folks at Image for NOT using evil DNR which would have destroyed Mr. Serling's original intent. To those that do not know, grain is an literally part of the physical composition of silver nitrate. Director's chose film stock based on how much grain they wanted their artistic vision to have. Grain=Detail not the opposite. To remove grain no matter how carefully always removes fine detail. So much detail is in this Blu-ray set you can even see the ripples and sheen of Rod Serling's herringbone suits in some of the intro's. That and the tiny lines on actors faces is detail to the MAX. Except for it being black and white, it is like they standing right in front of us. You don't get that when DNR is used, what you do get with DNR is a waxy unnatural look.
The folks at Image should also be proud for giving us unaltered, uncompressed sound as an option. For those of us who despise unnatural processed modern digital sound and this is a blessing of blessings. Coupled with the pristine video which totally unmarred thankfully due to no DNR this Blu-ray set is nearly as good as a pristine 35MM print. This set showcases Mr Serling's genius rather than try to conceal it in a shoddy revisionist modern manner. This and all the Zone sets are true reference quality.
To the people at Image please produce all your Blu-Ray using the same level of quality and professional effort as your Zone sets!!!!!
Many company's could learn valuable lessons on proper Blu-Ray mastering from the people at Image who worked on these zone sets.
season of Twilight Zone was the beginning of the decline of
the series. I won't argue with that point of view, but I do
take issue with those who would regard the fourth season as
poor quality or even trashy writing.
Although it was a network gimmick, it is a good thing that
Twilight Zone expanded to one hour. It represented the best
kind of artistic challenge to Serling and his excellent team
of writers. There are episodes here that simply could not be
done in the half-hour format. They require too much character
development and subtle nuances of detail. I'm talking about
"In His Image," "Jess-Belle," "Miniature," and "The Incredible
World of Horace Ford," among others. These episodes belong
with the best Twilight Zone ever produced.
While Season Four certainly indicates a television series past
its prime, it is definitely not chopped liver! Longtime fans
of the series will be able to appreciate the artistic output of
Serling et. al. in the hour format. They will also appreciate
the fact that they can view the hour-long episodes--rarely seen
in syndication--at their leisure.
Some intriguing artifacts are the colorized scenes from the syndicated version of "Miniature". While this is an interesting aspect of the storyline and gives a nice "over the rainbow" effect to the story, it also demonstrates why the dreaded colorization process of original Black & White films should NEVER be applied. But that's just my opinion, I could be wrong.
