My All-Time Favorite TV Series

This review is of the Definative Twilight Zone Collection:

This collection is the best television collection out there. All the stories were written by the top writers. Most had actors who later went on to big careers either in movies (Robert Redford as Mr. Death) and TV (Elizabeth Montgomery as a last remaining rebel in an interplanetary war.). I especially love the episode Time at Last where a bookworm finally finds what he has been waiting for only to lose it because he got greedy.

What makes this collection great are the extras that we didn't see on tv in the reruns such as Rod Serlings introduction to the following week's episode and interviews with actors looking back.

I was amazed to know that Billy Mummy revised his performance of the little boy who wanted everybody to be happy in a sequel where he is grown up and he has a daughter with the same powers. We only get a segment of it he but I wish I could see the whole episode.

Inger Stevens as Nan Adams

"The Hitch-Hiker" tells the tale of an individual who dies in a car accident, the fact of which for some inexplicable reason goes unnoticed by the deceased. If ever there were a modern folktale; this is one of Twilight Zone's finest tales if but for the revelatory performance of Inger Stevens. The story is not some April Fool where one laughs at the end or where even irony has the last word. …

This was a great tv series from the 60's created and hosted by a unique guy named Rod Serling. This show was innovative and very well written ( a lot of them were written by Rod Serling) and the stories always had a twist at the end. Kind of hard to watch them today because the pacing and unfolding of the stories is from another time (meaning very slow) and once you've seen them and know what's coming it kind of spoils the fun. All in Black & White, very little in the way of visual effects, …

A classic episode from the series's first season, The Hitch-Hikertakes a cue from the American urban legend, in which a motorist continually sees the same hitchiker over and over again for up to thousands of miles, finding out toward the trip's end that the hitchhiker really is death calling them to the afterlife.
