The Twilight Zone: Season 3 [Blu-ray]
Customers who viewed this item also viewed
All 37 episodes of the third season of Rod Serling’s classic, groundbreaking series, now presented in pristine high-definition for the first time ever, along with hours of new and exclusive bonus features not available anywhere else!
For Twilight Zone fans, the signpost up ahead shows that the Blu-ray presentation of the legendary fantasy-drama's third season is as well stocked with quality extras as its previous two releases. As before, the five-disc set blends new features recorded specifically for the Blu-ray release with commentary tracks and vintage audio and video clips from the Definitive Edition DVD releases. The commentary tracks are the most substantive new extras, including observations from Twilight Zone historian Marc Scott Zicree; series scribes George Clayton Johnson (who weighs in on four of his episodes, including a "A Game of Pool" and "Kick the Can"), Earl Hamner Jr. ("The Hunt"), and John Tomerlin ("The Jungle"); as well as such notable admirers as Neil Gaiman, Jeff Vlaming (Battlestar Galactica), William F. Nolan (Logan's Run), and comic book legends Marv Wolfman (Blade) and Len Wein (Swamp Thing). An additional 19 radio dramas, featuring audio remakes of classic episodes and performances by Jason Alexander, Blair Underwood, Don Johnson, and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead), are also included, as well as isolated scores by Van Cleave and legendary studio musician Tommy Morgan ("The Last Rites of Jeff Myrtlebank") and the original laugh track for "Cavender Is Coming," a proposed series pilot starring Carol Burnett and Jesse White. Actor Edson Stroll offers his observations on "The Trade-Ins," which marked his second appearance on The Twilight Zone (the other being "Eye of the Beholder"), while the third part of Zicree's 1978 interview with director of photography George T. Clemens--the man largely responsible for the series' distinctive look--rounds out the new material.
That alone is a staggering amount of supplemental features for any viewer, but the season-three Blu-ray also offers all of the extras from the season-three Definitive Edition, including commentaries from Billy Mumy, Leonard Nimoy, Cliff Robertson, and Jonathan Winters, who reads Johnson's alternative ending from "A Game of Pool." Audio interviews with producer Buck Houghton, directors Lamont Johnson and Buzz Kulik, Rod Serling's guest appearances on The Garry Moore Show (to promote "Cavender"), and a clip of his post-Zone hosting job on The Liar's Club are among the many highlights of this exceptional set. --Paul Gaita

I this season three of "The Twilight Zone" one teleplay worth pointing out is "The Midnight Sun" (1961). This stars a great but seldom seen actress Lois Nettleton as Norma.
The Earth was knocked out of orbit and is spiraling closer to the sun. As the globe warms up systems are beginning to fail and many people have already left for the few cooler climates. Left in the city are the people that decide there is no place to run and will finish their days at home. In one city apartment building Norma (Lois Nettleton) and her neighbor, Mrs. Bronson (Betty Garde), wait for the inevitable with what water is left. Wait it gets more complex as the radio announces unscrupulous people roaming the city. Yes they encounter intruder (Tom Reese). Needles to say he is not so polite.
Naturally the teleplay is all about the interaction of the characters. We must place you in the situation and speculate how it will all end.
