My two main problems with this collection is that there are only 19 episodes included, and that a few of my favorites are not included. Other than that, I think it is a fantastic set, and particularly giftable, what with coming in a nice tin. Plus I have to say that it does take time to get through all of the episodes, as one rather does have to parcel them out. Either you don't want to overload on weird and creepy, or you want to savor the excellence. And these are excellent episodes, all of them either thought-provoking or sleep-disturbing. Even the ones with the most corny special effects at least wonder how terrifying they would be with really convincing effects.
One of the most striking qualities of these Twilight Zone Favorites is the way in which they have retained their relevancy. They are obviously set in the time they were filmed, of course, and have accumulated a charming air of nostalgia, but the fears they deal with are still very relevant, for the most part. For example, modern society has come up with quite a few more options for causing the feared apocalypse than cold-war era worries about nuclear annihilation. However, this hardly detracts from the collection's appeal. The special features, however, are not so special, being simple text with a particularly annoying and repetitive sound track. They were informative, but went through pages automatically, rather than at my choice, and at a pace almost too fast to read more than half before it would switch.
Aside from this annoying feature, I would recommend this collection to anyone who is not such a huge fan of the Twilight Zone that they are searching for something more along the lines of the complete series or full seasons. It makes a fairly good introduction to the show, especially as a gift from a fan to a potential fan. Just remember, in the end, we all spend time in the Twilight Zone, if only in our darker dreams.
