By 1963-64, when the final season of Twilight Zone was being filmed/aired, the show had already gone through a cancellation, a name change, a change in length and was going on it's 3rd president in office. So many wonderous ideas had made it onto the screen that the well understandably began to run dry. In the realm of science fiction, quite often a writer will begin to rely on cliches more so often after years in the genre.

Such is the case with season 5 of Twilight Zone. Shows of this season lacked the precise structuring and engaging story lines of earlier seasons. Episodes such as 'Uncle Simon', 'Ring-A-Ding Girl' and 'Ninety Years Without Slumbering' simply lacked a feeling of involvement, and others such as 'The Bewitching Pool' were just poorly made, going so far as to intercut an overdubbed adult voice for that of a child character. Yet with all these complaints, I would be the first to say that with a show like Twilight Zone, I find myself returning to the clunkers with blissful abandonment, as there is a certain charm to even the worst that this series has to offer. And there are certainly plenty of clunkers available here for those viewers so inclined to induldge.

But in a strictly objective sense, season 5 was arguably the worst of the series, with season 4 the only other contendor (although the different length format makes the two almost impossible to compare). However, the winners of this season unquestionably stand with the best of any other, amongst them being 'The Masks', 'Living Doll', 'Garrity and the Graves', 'Steel', 'In Praise of Pip', 'Last Night of a Jockey' and probably the most well known of the season, 'Nightmare at 20,000 Feet'.

It's a real shame that The Twilight Zone didn't go beyond a 5th season. I have been a die-hard fan of the show when it was popular as a rerun in the 1980s. Personally, season 5 was my favorite of the Twilight Zone.

To me there were many underrated classics in this season: "You Drive," "Night Call," "An Occurance At Owl Creek Bridge" (actually this episode is a French film. The story was written by Ambrose Bierce), "What's in The Box," "Stopover In A Quiet Town" and the rare non-syndicated episode "The Encounter." It also includes the more well-known classics: "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet," "Mr. Garrity And The Graves," "The Masks" and "Living Doll."

There are also some great bonus features including a 90-minute in-depth documentary about the life of Rod Serling titled "Submitted For Your Approval."

Also included are audio commentary with some of the stars like Martin Landau (The Jeopardy Room), Mickey Rooney (The Last Night Of A Jockey), Bill Mumy (Praise Of Pip) and Alan Sues (The Masks). Interviews with Rod Serling; remastered picture and sound for superior quality and much, much more.

This box set is worth every penny. I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

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. 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, almost like viewing the original film elements. Look how realistic Shatner's [over exagerrated :)] facial expressions are in Nightmare at 20000 Feet. On my 50" plasma I can see every tiny line on his face as if he were actually standing in front of me. You don't get that when DNR is used, what you do get with DNR is a waxy unnatural/unhuman look. See example here: [...]

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 thankfully was left totally unmarred in transfer due to no DNR or ee [edge enhancement], this Blu-ray set is as close to as a pristine 35MM print as any of us will ever get. This set showcases Mr Serling's genius rather than try to conceal it in a shoddy revisionist modern manner and is truly reference quality.

Only negative for me is the non inclusion of the PBS American Masters "Submitted For Your Approval" documentary that was present on the Season 5 DVD set. While this set is still 5 stars, the absence of the documentary leaves it just short of perfection.

Fans of the cult classic CBS 1959-1964 television series "The Twilight Zone" will be happy to learn that by August, 2011 the entire series will see renewed life, yet again, on Blu-ray as the fifth and final season arrives in stores. The episodes have been restored to pristine condition and the set featutes an array of features that will more than please fans.

Producers wisely pushed back the running time of "The Twilight Zone" to 30 minutes this season after airing the series the previous year in 60 minutes installments that made the stories lag somewhat. This year also features some of the best "Twilight Zone" episodes ever produced, among them "Uncle Simon" and "Living Doll" (my two personal favorites), "The Masks", "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet", and "Stopover in a Quiet Town".

First up is a list of all 36 "Twilight Zone" season 5 episodes along with their airdates, then I have included a list of the amazing bonus features, some never before-seen, not even on the DVD release. This is a five disc set.
