This is the second time that THE ENCOUNTER has been issued on DVD. I do believe that this is a better transfer than the first. Written by Martin M. Goldsmith and starring Neville Brand and George Takei this a well-produced episode. This two-man play is a tour-de-force of acting and drama that is possible and rarely seen from this medium. Some men bury their guilt by making their own prejudices while others carry it as an inherited burden. How do men cope with guilt be it real or imagined and can ordinary circumstances set those emotions off in an unexpected explosion of violence? Neville Brand and George Takei find out. THE LITTLE PEOPLE is one of those very memorable episodes starring Joe Maross and Claude Akins as astronauts who land on a distant planet inhabited by tiny people. Written by Rod Serling it is one of his episodes where fate steps in and turns the tables. Again circumstances take hold of man and the demons he hides within. The most interesting episode that I found in this volume was NO TIME LIKE THE PAST from the 4th Season. Also written by Rod Serling this episode suggests a combination of his earlier works WALKING DISTANCE and BACK THERE. Dana Andrews is excellent as a scientist who travels back in time in an effort to prevent major historical events of catastrophic proportions from ever taking place. The earlier part of the episode is more technologically based but it slowly develops into a more endearing story focusing on scientist Dana Andrews as he decides to remain in the past. Once more circumstances beyond our control take hold of events. These are three very good episodes.

Volume 33 in the "Twilight Zone" DVD series is one of the better volumes around. Three stories all together on the disc and not a weak one in the batch. This is definitely one you will want to consider getting.

It starts off with "The Little People". Two astronauts have to land on what looks like a barren planet while repairs are made to the spaceship. While the captain, Claude Akins is busy making the repairs his partner is busy wondering around exploring the canyon they landed in. It is while he is wandering around that astronaut Peter Craig, played by Joe Maross, discovers the planet is inhabited by people. Little, tiny people smaller then an ant. He develops a way to communicate with the little people and before you know it he is considered a god by these people. Pretty heady stuff to be considered a god but it goes to his head and starts acting more like a dictator. When Akins finally gets the ship fixed and tells his comrade it is time to leave Craig pulls a weapon on Akins and tells him to leave without him. When the spaceship takes off Craig thinks he is now in control of his own little world but...

Many reading this may remember the '90s sci-fi series "Quantum Leap". But before there was this series there was the "Twilight Zone" episode "No Time Like the Past". Starring Dana Andrews, Paul Driscoll is a scientist who is cynical of the world and the ways it seems to go about trying to destroy itself. Using a time machine he tries to go back to different points in the past to try to warn people that terrible events are about to happen. First he goes to Hiroshima and tries to warn the officials there a large bomb is about to be dropped in the city and to evacuate as many people they can before it happens.

The Twilight Zone Series are my favorites Videos Series. I do no t like the live episodes that be included in some of the twilight zones series. Would recommend, I like watching them on the weekends and definitely when it is cold and raining outside. Got them from Amazon when they were $4.99 per DVD. Thank You.

Nothing matches old Twilight Zone episodes for teaching irony! Great models for short scripts too. All skits are easily found online and can be read before viewing too. Some episodes are a bit dated but can be revised (by students) to suit today's audiences.
