"This season is widely regarded as best..."

"[T]he remarkably high production values do impress, while the standard of the acting is particularly notable."
Explore the depths of the unknown in season one of the TWILIGHT ZONE! Funny at times, heartbreaking at others, THE TWILIGHT ZONE was one of the most unique, creative television shows ever created. Rod Serling developed the series around the premise of following people as they experience things so bizarre they can only be part of a fifth dimension! Rod Serling appears at the start and finish of each episode, acting as the viewer's guide through the TWILIGHT ZONE. Consistently compelling, moral, and thought provoking, the series still inspires remakes and contemporary spin-offs today.
