5.0 out of 5 stars Underappreciated seasons..., April 4, 2005
This review is from: The Twilight Zone - Seasons 2 & 3 (1986 - 1988) (DVD)
The Twilight Zone aired on CBS from 1985 to 1986 as a normal Friday primetime series. Though ratings were decent enough to warrant a fullscale renewal, in the fall of 1986 it was obvious things had changed: advertising plummeted, the show moved to Saturdays at 10 (a death knell), and episodes aired infrequently. Still, the second season has some great episodes: "The Storyteller" is haunting and worthy of the original series, "Aqua Vita" was deadly appropriate for the image-conscious mid-80s and still packs a punch, "Nightsong" is an eerie, captivating character study dominated by the always wonderful, understated Lisa Eilbacher. Season 3 was actually a syndicated response to the need to make more episodes in order to sell the show into syndication. Here the quality falls, to be sure, but again, some episodes stand out..."Cat and Mouse" has one of the finest endings of any Twilight Zone. All in all, this is a worthy collection to consider buying. Image Entertainment is to be praised for putting these episodes out: we might have expected never to see them on DVD. The first season was met with a lot of whining about "picture quality" (as if these episodes were digitally perfect in 1985), but these three seasons are worth owning as a worthy part of the Twilight Zone library. Would that we could say the same about the disgraceful 2002 series.
