For Those Who Like Their Twilight Zone Straight Up,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Twilight Zone: Season 3 (Episodes Only Collection) (DVD)
in a rocks glass. No muss. No fuss. No extras. Just pure unadulterated spookiness and unsubtle social commentary without the ice, mixers, special guest appearances, or commercial breaks. Well, maybe a word or two from our sponsor before the chain-smoking Rod Serling tosses out a teaser about next week's episode. Good Lord, he might even mention the name of the writer! That's the way it was in '50s/'60s TV. And Twilight Zone was among the best of the lot. Still is.
Go ahead. Treat yourself to a marathon of little boys wishing their enemies into the corn field, nuclear worldwide war paranoia, troubled men longing for bygone days of idyllic youth, and troubled women longing for -- or desperate to avoid -- perverted beauty. You may never want to get on a plane again. Even the devil himself-- well, I won't spoil it for you.
The episodes appear in their original broadcast order. For my money, the best years were the first season and the fourth (the only hour-long episodes), but feel free to disagree. Yeah, there are a few clunkers in there, but go ahead and buy all five seasons. You know you want to.
