The Second Installment is Yet Another Keeper,
This review is from: The Twilight Zone: Collection 2 (DVD)The item you are viewing is the second in a series of 5 Twilight Zone DVD collections, each containing 9 volumes of 4 episodes each. ....
Not bad, eh? The only difference between the box set DVDs and the individual ones are the cases. They are better, in my opinion, because they are more compact and yet aren't those [inexpensive] cardboard things. You also get a nice box to house them in.
Onto the content. If you're a fan of only some of the episodes -- the most popular ones that people always talk about, chances are you should buy Collection 1 first (contains "To Serve Man", "Nightmare At 20,000 Feet", etc.). But there are definitely some classics contained in Collection 2. Among the 36 episodes (Volumes 10-18 of the individual DVDs) are:
--The After Hours: Anne Francis visits a department store's mysterious 9th floor. Didn't that mannequin just sell her a thimble?
--Living Doll: If you remember the TZ and don't remember "Talky Tina", there's something seriously wrong with you!
--The Obsolete Man: Has Burgess Meredith become obsolete?? This one has landed in the Fans' Top 15 Episodes.
--The Midnight Sun: The sun is inching closer and closer to Earth. That can only mean one thing... It's hot!
--A Hundred Yards Over the Rim: A man traveling with a wagon trains crosses over a rim in the Nevada desert in search of water, game and way to heal his son... but winds up in the Twilight Zone!
