The greatest TV show of all time

The film critic Leonard Maltin called The Twilight Zone “possibly the best TV series of all time,” and Peter Wolfe described it as “the best art-directed show in TV history and the most influential.”

Rod Serling was a financially and artistically successful Emmy award-winning writer for American television during the 1950s. He tackled many topical themes, including race and politics, but suffered the censorship of the various commercial sponsors who were nervous to be attached to anything controversial. Following one particularly difficult experience with a teleplay called The Arena, he said that “he would have had a more “adult” play if he had transposed the setting one hundred years into the future and peopled the Senate with robots.” The final straw came with the sponsor‘s intrusion on his play A Town Has Turned to Dust, which involved scenes of lynching, adultery and suicide. Serling stated that by the time it “went before the cameras, my script had turned to dust. They chopped it up like a roomful of butchers at work on a steer.”

The Twilight Zone was intended to be allegorical. In each episode of The Twilight Zone Serling’s characters questioned the very nature of their realities, both internal and external, fulfilling the surrealist desire to find a truer reality, a synthesis of the interior and exterior worlds. Not only the characters but the audience themselves were able to question their own reality as they confronted fears and prejudices, whether they be disguised as aliens or nuclear holocaust.

The Twilight Zone is one of the finest television programmes ever broadcast, and it is great that each season is now being made available in blu ray format. Perhaps now a new generation will discover the wonders that this show contains.


There is a higher definition, beyond that which is known to man...

Finally, The Twilight Zone, arguably the most influential anthology show comes to bluray in the uk. Gloriously presented in stunning hi-definition this set features not only 36 episodes of Season One but a whole host of extras including the never-before-seen pilot episode, multiple audio commentaries, interviews, radio plays, and much more, meaning that even if you've seen the episodes before there's still a whole wealth of material to be discovered. Freemantle Media have done an excellent job in presenting incredible quality transfers and you really will be blown away at how good a tv show over 50 years old looks today. Stand-out episodes on this set for me include "The Hitch-Hiker", "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" and "Time Enough at Last". With subsequent seasons also due for bluray release (including the often under-appreciated 1980's revival series) it's a fantastic time to be a Twilight Zone fan.
