4.0 out of 5 stars TWILIGHT ZONE's "Controversial" Fourth Season Gets The 'Episodes Only' Release Fans Deserve Aug. 18 2013
By E. Lee Zimmerman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
While it's still open to debate, I prefer to argue that there probably is no other program that influenced so many early television producers and stars as THE TWILIGHT ZONE. It's constantly cited as the inspiration behind so many people - cast and crew - who got into the business. Its singular theme music even today evokes exactly the kind of magical, mystical quality it did back in its heyday. And the acting performances for a television anthology program simply set the standard for what was possible on the device so many dubbed `the boob tube' in TV's infancy.

RLJ Entertainment has once again done the admirable by stripping away all of the bluster that sometimes accompanies a set's special features, and they've released another "episodes only" installment, this time bringing ZONE's fourth season front and center for audiences to experience and re-experience again.

(NOTE: The following review will contain minor spoilers necessary solely for the discussion of plot and characters. If you're the kind of reader who prefers a review entirely spoiler-free, then I'd encourage you to skip down to the last three paragraphs for my final assessment. If, however, you're accepting of a few modest hints at `things to come,' then read on ...)

What makes the fourth season so special?

Well, critically, there's plenty to love about the show. With guest stars like Bill Bixby, Burt Reynolds, and Robert Duvall, the stories continued to explore the limits of Rod Serling's imagination; but the real bonus (and modest controversy) involved the show's expansion from the  hour format to a full sixty minutes of programming. I've read some of the scuttlebutt about why the change happened - much of which gets attributed back to the network (CBS) and their tampering with their line-up of the day - and I suppose some criticism is legitimate. In fact, some of the subject matter involved in these stories don't have what I'd call the "intellectual weight" to hold up under scrutiny for a full hour - it is, after all, fantasy, and the central conceit of the `twist ending' can be seen a mile away through all of the narrative baggage. Still, there are some outings - "The Thirty Fathom Grave," "He's Alive," and "The New Exhibit" - that benefit from greater exploration afforded by the longer format. At the end of the day, this'll probably always be a bone of contention for ZONE purists, but I can clearly see both sides of the argument.

Besides, where else can one get the diversity of storytelling but from THE TWILIGHT ZONE? Whether it be drawing back the curtain to challenge the reality of everyday life or dabbling in the realm of space exploration and time travel, Rod Serling's seminal program continues to delight audiences even to this day. Many of the installments here - due to the expanded time limit - haven't been aired as often have the shorter ones, and, for that, this may very well be the set to own for those of you who believe they've seen everything the ZONE has had to offer. Mind you, it ain't perfect, but, as I said, this is just about as good as TV gets.

Ever.

THE TWILIGHT ZONE: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON is produced by Cayuga Productions and the Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS). DVD distribution is being handled by RLJ Entertainment. As for the technical specifications, I'm continually amazed by how well these black-and-white transfers have held up with their age. For those needing it spelled out perfectly, this release from RLJ is an episodes-only collection - there are no special features or interviews - so they're a bargain investment to a viewer like me who typically only has enough time to re-explore the stories and performances over and over again. Kudos!

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The fourth season of THE TWILIGHT ZONE endures despite the change in format from  hour to full hour storytelling and despite that fact that the modest revamp forced a few of the seams to the surface. (Don't fret, as producers returned to the  hour format in Season 5.) What emerged, however, was even stronger character-driven material, a broader palate under which the actors could explore these curious flights of fancy. (Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out that one of my personal all-time ZONE favorites - a Dennis Hopper vehicle called "He's Alive" - is part and parcel of why the hour-long format worked as well as it did.)

In the interests of fairness, I'm pleased to disclose that the fine folks at RLJ Entertainment provided me with a DVD copy of THE TWILIGHT ZONE: THE COMPLETE FOURTH SEASON by request for the expressed purposes of completing this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars "The Twilight Zone: The Complete Fourth Season" Gives Fans the Only Hour Long Episodes Aug. 15 2013
By ERSInk . com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Some people never take old sayings to heart until it's too late. While in the midst of watching the fourth season of "The Twilight Zone," the proverb "If it ain't broke, don't fix it" came to mind. The perfect 30-minute format of the show was stretched to an hour to fill in the time another show left open. "Stretched" is exactly how this season of the classic television show feels.

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. Earl Hamner, Jr. ("The Waltons," "Falcon Crest") and Reginald Rose ("Twelve Angry Men") also came on board to take over writing duties when Beaumont left the show because of a sickness.

"The Twilight Zone: The Complete Fourth Season" is a great collection of the only hour-long episodes of the famous anthology series. Each segment is cleaned up and the video and audio restored. The stories might feel a bit stretched at times, but their overall delivery of shocks in the end make up for that.

Does this DVD have the episode with Robert Duvall called "Miniature"? It seems like the "complete " 4th season would have more episodes than this says it has.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is probably the only way you'll be able to watch Season 4 Feb. 28 2014

I've been watching the entire series on the SyFy channel, but they don't seem to be showing any Season 4 shows. That's probably because Season 4 episodes were an hour long versus 30 minutes for the other seasons. It's all here. Now that I'm done watching it, I'll donate the DVD set to the local library and take a tax deduction.
