With a return to the half hour, the stories have to move along and we don't get to dwell on or ponder things as much. But, because the writing was still very good, they managed to keep the stories interesting and maintain consistent quality content.
Yes, by now the series was beginning to run short on ideas, and sadly, it does show. However, compared to what is out there in today's market, these stories hold up very well for forty year old tales. Because the quality of writing was generally better back then, even for "bad" shows, compared to today, we can visit these episodes and find them quite enjoyable.
The nice thing about stories such as these is that though the costumes and cars and things like that are "dated", the characters and stories are not. And much of the subject matter throughout the whole series remains reasonably topical even today. And shows that deal with the human condition - which doesn't change - generally fare better over time than those that try to capitalize on the trendy stuff of the time in which they were created.
For that reason, I find the whole of the Twilight Zone series of consistent high quality and can easily recommend it to fans of the fantasy/science fiction camp.
Most episodes have excellent picture and sound quality and in fact this has improved a great deal over the previous seasons as well. Overall this is a very good blu-ray set of season five of the series.
- the quality of the transfers look very impressive in HD, there's no artifacts or other anomologies sometimes seen in the DVD version
- the audio tracks have been restored and remastered and they give a lot of new depth to some of the classic episodes
- a nice collection of episodes that still stand the test of time
- great extras are included, including interviews and other behind the scenes bits
- the set can be kinda pricey, so shop around for the best deal
Even if you have these on regular DVD, I realize that it can be daunting to buy another series AGAIN, just to have it in HD, but trust me, it's worth it.
It's great to watch these shows all these years later, and they're "commercial-free". Rod Serling was a genius. A lot of big stars acted in these episodes, both before and after they became famous.
A great sci-fi series I would recommend to anyone who's a fan of this type of programming.
