Don't get me wrong. "The Twilight Zone's" fourth season is still quality television. The stories are entertaining and still have the great twists audiences expect from the show. The extended running time just leaves viewers with a sense that a bit of fluff had to be added to each episode. Rod Serling said it best when asked about the extended time slot.
"Ours is the perfect half-hour show... If we went to an hour, we'd have to fleshen our stories, soap opera style. Viewers could watch fifteen minutes without knowing whether they were in a 'Twilight Zone' or 'Desilu Playhouse,'" Serling stated about the change.
All 18 episodes of "The Twilight Zone's" fourth season are included in this 5-disc set. Every episode features a guest star that either went on to bigger and better things in Hollywood or were already established actors. There are appearances by Burt Reynolds, Dennis Hopper, Robert Duvall, Bill Bixby, and James Doohan to name a few.
Although Rod Serling handles the bulk of the scripts for the different episodes, other highly regarded writers contributed their talents. Richard Matheson ("I Am Legend," "What Dreams May Come") and Charles Beaumont ("The Masque of the Red Death," "The Intruder") both returned and filled in the gaps left by Serling.

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.
