Volume 18 in "The Twilight Zone" DVD series offers an interesting combination of two space stories with one about the Civil War. "I Shot an Arrow Into the Air," written by Rod Serling and based on an idea by Madelon Champion, relates how the U.S. spaceship Arrow One disappears off the radar screen and crashes. Three of its astronauts survive the crash and find themselves on what they take to be an asteroid with only five gallons of water between them. Corey (Dewey Martin), decides the only way to survive is to kill the other two. Another spaceship is featured in the hour-long "Death Ship," written by Richard Matheson and based on his short story. The E-89 investigates something shining on the surface of a planet and discover what looks to be their own wrecked ship and dead bodies. Lieutenants Mason (Ross Martin) and Carter (Fredrick Beir) become convinced they are dead, but Captain Paul Ross (Jack Klugman), will have none of that. "Still Valley" by Serling based on Manly Wade Wellman's short story "The Valley Was Made Still," stars Gary Merrill as Paradine, a Confederate scout who stumbles upon a town filled with Union soldiers all standing frozen. An old man (Vaughn Taylor) has used a book of black magic to work this miracle. The old man is dying and begs Paradine to take the book and use it to win the war. This is another disc where none of the episodes qualify as a classic Zone story. Its chief virtue is seeing Jack Klugman once again on the show, but for once playing a strong and very determined character.

I have always found the hour long Twilight Zone episodes from the fourth season rather interesting. They certainly are a mixed bag. Such is the case here with "Death Ship" written by Richard Matheson. Three astronauts land on a remote planet and find the remains of their ship and their lifeless bodies inside. Their captain, played by Jack Klugman, is certain there is some scientifically credible reason for this and they are not dead as the other two astronauts are so convinced of. Jack Klugman gives a very stoic performance here, much out of character from most of his roles. For me, it is Klugman's performance that makes this episode more than intriguing.

"I Shot an Arrow Into the Air," written by Rod Serling deals with three astronauts who crash land on an asteroid. Or did they? They went off the radar tracking screens and were unable to contact mission control. Desolate are their surroundings and only five gallons of water to ration out if and when they are found. That is their predicament. One of the astronauts portrayed by the very talented and recognizable character actor Dewey Martin has other ideas. Sophisticated viewers are probably way ahead of this episode's plot, but it is still interesting to watch this study in deception, paranoia and survival.

My favorite is the Civil War episode "Still Valley" by Rod Serling. A Confederate scout played by the crag faced Gary Merrill reconnoiters a town held by Union troops who are all frozen in their tracks as if time had stopped. Sinister forces are at work here with a spell from a book of black magic from an old man who suggests that Merrill use this force to destroy the entire Union army. That is the moral dilemma set before Merrill. The images of the frozen Union soldiers are a bit unsettling and are rather haunting. Thought provoking stuff from The Twilight Zone.

Each reviewer for this specific volumn of TZ episodes seems to have his or her own favorite. I'll add my thoughts if nobody minds, because one of the included episodes has always been, in my opinion, very underrated when it should be up there with Shatner and his Nightmare or Burgess Meredith and Time Enough at last to read, if only all the Lenscrafters hadn't been destroyed by that damned nuclear wipeout. Firstly, my least favorite: "Still Valley". I didn't get it twenty years ago, and I still don't get it. Gary Merrill finds himself in a town frozen stock still, is offered a book that will help his side win the Civil War, decides he doesn't want it if it means he'll be making a deal with the Devil...the end. I really, really try to see good to this specific episode, and I just don't, so I'll leave it alone. "I Shot An Arrow" is good, and I've watched it many times. Dewey Martin, without repeating too much or giving up too much of the plot not mentioned by other reviewers, ends up the surviving astronaut who gets the kick in the teeth of all kicks by Fate. Good acting, well-written, and I like the TZ-type twist. Now, "Death Ship": I absolutely love this episode, one of the hour ones when TZ went to that length for one season. Jack Klugman, Ross Martin and Frederick Beir are astronauts, and when their ship lands on another planet, they're more than surprised to see an exact replica of it already there, right down to doubles of themselves in the phantom ship's hold. Again, the plot is mentioned in other reviews, but the basic question to the first time viewer - or even those going back with an "I guess you could look at it this way, too" attitude - is, Are these three men dead, and did their ship crash? This means that they're ghosts, for lack of a better description...maybe.Read more ›
