Dedicated visitors to the fifth dimension will find an impressive array of extras in the season 1 set, drawing from both the Definitive Edition DVDs as well as a wealth of new material unearthed or created especially for this presentation. For many, the inclusion of "The Time Element," a 1958 episode of The Westinghouse Desilu Playhouse penned by Rod Serling, will be among the key selling points; never legally available in any format prior to this set, the hour-long story, which stars William Bendix as a man who suffers from a recurring nightmare of being at Pearl Harbor before the attack, has been widely regarded as the unofficial pilot for TZ, and it fits perfectly with the tone and quality of the established episodes. For others, the 19 new commentary tracks created for the Blu-ray set will be the draw; anchored by Twilight Zone Companion author Marc Scott Zicree, and featuring talents ranging from director Ted Post to historian Gary Gerani, the new tracks are informative and flesh out the six provided on the Definitive DVDs. There's also an early version of "What You Need" from the '50s anthology series Tales of Tomorrow; a 1978 interview with cinematographer George T. Clemens, who was responsible for the series' signature look; and 13 isolated music scores featuring the work of Bernard Herrmann and Jerry Goldsmith, among others. All of these features, plus 12 additional Twilight Zone radio adaptations, join the exceptional material from the DVDs, including an unaired version of the pilot episode, "Where Is Everybody?," with Serling's sales pitch to networks; commentary by actor Martin Landau, among others; interviews with producer Douglas Heyes and actor Burgess Meredith; recordings of Serling's lectures; original sponsor billboards; and footage of the show's Emmy wins. --Paul Gaita

The shows are great, the remastered picture and sound is good, and there's many special features. Season 1 even came with a book about the entire seasons, including reviews of every episode --- I enjoyed that.
The best seasons are 1, 2 and 3. Seasons 4 & 5 each have some great episodes, but fewer than the first 3 seasons. Season 4 had one-hour episodes (while the other seasons had half hour episodes) and it's the weakest season by far.
If you loved this show but aren't sure about spending the money, get the first 3 seasons only. If you want it all, get the definitive collection with all 5 seasons together and save a lot of money.
Amazon needs to fix their review system-- some of these reviews do not refer to this Blu-ray release at all. This release is completely different, and it is an apples-and-oranges scenario.
Finally, the complaints about price are just asinine. Save that for the message boards, don't wreck honest opinions of the product itself with such nonsense. You're a smart consumer, fine. No one is forcing you to purchase at a higher price than you'd like.
