The middle ground between light and shadow just became a whole lot sharper and detailed with this stellar five-disc set, which compiles the entire second season of Rod Serling's classic television series, The Twilight Zone, and gilds the whole package by including a treasure trove of supplemental material. TZ's second season (1960-61) is a stand-out in the series' history thanks to its sheer number of memorable stories; among the episodes that have achieved pop culture landmark status are the chilling "Eye of the Beholder" (a disfigured woman undergoes surgery to appear more "normal") and "The Silence" (Franchot Tone wagers that Liam Sullivan cannot silent for a year); "The Invaders" (Agnes Moorhead is pitted against tiny space travelers), "Long Distance Call" (Lost in Space's Billy Mumy converses with a deceased relative on his toy phone), and the more light-hearted "Night of the Meek," in which department store Santa Claus Art Carney gets a chance to fulfill the real St. Nick's duties. As always, the combination of sharp, intelligent scripting (mostly by Serling, but with notable contributions by Charles Beaumont, Richard Matheson, and George Clayton Johnson) and superb casting (guest stars include Cliff Robertson, Dennis Weaver, Burgess Meredith, William Shatner, John Carradine, and Don Rickles) produces television that remains as thought-provoking and entertaining today as it was over 40 years ago.

Though The Twilight Zone has received numerous home video releases over the years, the aptly titled Definitive Edition is arguably the finest presentation of this series to date. Each of the episodes have been digitally remastered from original camera negatives (even the episodes filmed on videotape look good) and magnetic soundtracks; Serling's previews for upcoming episodes and advertising "billboards" (sponsor spots) have also been included, as have commentaries by Rickles, Weaver, Robertson, Shelly Berman, and other performers. Clips of Serling on The Jack Benny Show and in conversation with Mike Wallace, audio interviews with cast and crew members by Twilight Zone Companion author Marc Scott Zicree, radio adaptations of classic episodes, and even the script for "Twenty-Two," complete with Serling's notes, round out the set, which belongs in the collection of anyone who's ever been enthralled by this landmark series. Now, if only the same treatment could be afforded to Serling's other anthology program, Night Gallery--Paul Gaita --This text refers to the DVD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Can I Say ..... June 28 2013
By David M
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's the Twilight Zone. You either like or you don't. My girl friend thinks its cheesy and boring but it doesn't have the same memories for her. I'm not old enough to remember the original broadcasts but I do remember sitting with my dad in the late 70's when I was 8 - 10 years old watching various episodes and I think that's why I relate to it so much. The quality is great, especially for the price which was around $25 I think. I just got it a couple days ago so I'm looking forward to watching all episodes soon. Maybe I'll bring them with me to dads house and see if he wants to watch some too. And I love the black and white especially at night when its dark, makes it all that much more nostalgic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic TV series doesn't disappoint. Aug. 8 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I watched these sometimes creepy, sometimes funny stories on late night TV as a kid. They rarely failed to leave an impression. Seeing them again on DVD is a walk down memory lane. When you look at the other TV shows which were popular in the early sixties, you realize Rod Serling was ahead of his time. Twilight Zone was the Fringe or Lost of it's time. It is great to see famous actors before they were famous making appearances in episodes, like William Shatner and Robert Redford.

The video quality of the DVD's is good, considering the source material was black and white TV from the sixties. If you are a fan of classic TV series, then this is an essential addition to your collection.
