The Twilight Zone

Show Summary

This show is based on Rod Serling's classic TV anthology show, The Twilight Zone. Redoing some episodes and doing new ones 20 years laters after the originals, these are made in color and in one-hour episodes. Most of the episodes contained two or three stories, and were broken up in half hour episodes for syndication. CBS cancelled the show in its second season, but it was picked up by a Canadian producer and aired in syndication in a half-hour format. The show contains mostly ironic or special situations with a twist at the end, which show the human nature, coupled with science fiction, horror or fantasy. Some of the show's writers are well known: Harlan Ellison, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Richard Matheson, Sidney Sheldon and J. Michael Straczynski. The opening and closing music was done by The Grateful Dead.

  • What's better than the original twilight zone? nothing, but the twilight zone (1985) comes real close.

    9.0
    When i was just a boy learning to play by the rules of life i found this show and i was captivated by its eeriness and supernatural stories. The show delivers almost as much weirdness into your spirit as the original version. most of the stories range from simply goofy to really dark and scary tales of horror, I really love how each story takes you into the lives of people like you and me and puts them in a situation they would have never dreamed of and best of all nobodie ever stops to think that this might be a little odd and atleast run away!. Weirdness 1000% i recommend it to anyone who enjoys stories with not so complicated plots.moreless

    Its close to the original twilight zone and arguably just as good. So this is the first revival and it's great there's alot of smart people and popular actors that were on this show. Unlike the original twilight zone or tz 2002 an episode for this tz is and hour long and consists of either two or three segments. There is a total of three seasons I own the first season on dvd its great. My favorite episode from the twilight zone 1985 is ''To see the invisble man''. If you haven't seen tz 1985 yet I highly recommend you watch it.moreless
  • Eighties relauch of the classic Twilight Zone series.

    This was the first show in the New Twilight Zone series, which aired from 1985 until sometime in 1989, I think.



    I rate this series as a personal favorite. I used to try to watch this show as a ten year old. As I did, I had to hide under the covers. It was so scary to me back then.



    Even now, watching these shows again, I can see how they are still scary. Moreover, this show features some great directors who would go on to direct horror classics, namely Wes Craven. How can you beat that?



    In college I studied history. This show is almost like a time capsule of the 1980's. Frequently dealing with ancillary themes such as nuclear war, Vietnam, and station wagons, this show really gives a taste of what it was like to live back then. I grew up in the 80's. For that reason, I really enjoy this show.

  • This show features everyday people put in strange out-of-this-world experiences.

    9.0
    This is truly a great show. The older version is a true classic but this version is highly entertaining itself. Since Rod Serling was not around to do the writing anymore there was bound to be a drop off. The show still managed to be better than most of the other shows out there. Even some of the re-hashed storylines weren't bad since you got to see current actors and actresses playing the parts. It's kind of like when a classic song is covered by a current day music group. It use really bother me as I would think that the current day band is trying to ride someone else’s coat tails. However I have come to learn that in music, movies and television many of today kids would not be exposed to the older material if it were not made popular by someone in the current time.moreless
  • Another great Sci-Fi TV series that was originally created by Rod Serling.

    8.1
    I love this series and watch it on Sci-Fi channel when I can. Rod Serling is one of the great writing geniuses of our time. He took TV when it was still pretty new and came up with something totally different. He didnt have all of that high tech computers and digital manipulation that the people of today have and yet nobody can make a show as good as this. He is one of the founding fathers of Sci-Fi in my opinion along with Gene Rodenberry and Isac Asimov. I love it on holidays when they run a twilight zone marathon and I can just watch it all day. This would be a good one to buy on DVD if it is available. I still will watch the new versions of twilight zone and outer limits, but neither one is as good as the original. His Night Gallery was great too.moreless
