    Default The Twilight Zone

    Shockingly, we don't have a Twilight Zone thread. I should rewatch my blu-rays of the original series. Looking forward to what's next:

    I didn't know there was anything coming next. I hope for good programming dedicated to quality stories which engage the mind.

    I believe Peele has a real interest in making this a quality thing; I am excited to see how it is.

    I just saw a promo for the new Twilight Zone last night.
    Im hopeful this will be close to the quality of the original.

    I'm getting to the point now where I'm feeling the market is over-saturated with reboots. Can't we just leave things alone?

    Also, enough with the 8,000 streaming services. There's just no feasible way (time OR money) to see and subscribe to everything.

    I am a HUGE Twilight Zone fan. That being said, I am not looking forward to this at all. I agree with Ricky - why must we have more reboots? This is the FOURTH reboot of this damn series.

    I think TTZ is more than just a program of its own; it is a platform for the unusual and creative, and in that sense, it should never go away, and when it does go away, I want it to come back (in the right hands).

    It's so true. I have anxiety over some of the streaming services. I finally broke down and started paying for Hulu after doing the 30 day free trial dance for 2 years.

    I was more than likely one of the last holdouts still receiving DVDs from Netflix, so I downgraded to streaming only and the money I saved there is going towards Hulu.

    That said, my list of shows I want to watch on Amazon is growing. Not enough time or money like you said.

    Also, I've been meaning to pickup the complete Twilight Zone collection for years. I keep thinking I'm going to find it cheap at a Goodwill or flea market, but not luck.

    I love The Twilight Zone, and that's exactly the reason I don't want it to come back.

    And Mike, no more DVDs?! I still get them.

    The Twilight Zone on blu-ray is a must-have, so beautifully restored and so many extras.

    Even though it premiered in 1959, the pilot to the pilot (The Time Element) aired 60 years ago this November. I wonder if folks would like to do a group rewatch of the series and have a discussion here? If you don't have the blu-rays (and you really should! Amazon has it on sale for 50% off for just about sixty bucks), Hulu, Netflix, and Amazon Prime all have it streaming.

    Wait, fourth reboot? I have the original boxset and the eighties one (with Ellison's and Straczynski's stories). What am I missing?

I just loved how it tied into the original, although I wanted to strangle the kids in both of them!

    It was time. It was hard to do, but I found myself just not watching them. I had What We Do in the Shadows sitting on my table since December. Plus, I'm buying so many DVDs used, that I went through my queue and realized I had already bought a good majority of them. Also, I never used Netflix to rent new movies. I always used Redbox for that.

    The hardest part was that this is still my Netflix subscription that Heather sent me years ago.

    Ricky, I guess it's just you and me as the lone two subscribers. I love the ability to get whatever movie I want. There's always older films that I want to watch which aren't streaming anywhere, so that's the only way for me to watch them.

    As for the Twilight Zone, I'm not too thrilled with another remake. The original is probably my favorite series ever. It's so good. And I hate how everything keeps getting remade these days. I more wish that they would release a new similar theme show, just not "The Twilight Zone". Of course I'll tune in though and see how it is. Hopefully it will exceed my expectations and be really good.

    I'm with you, Heather. There's lots of stuff I can't find except through the DVDs. And streaming just can't beat the excitement of receiving a new one in the mail. It's like music. iPods let you hear any song you want at any time, but it's still exciting to hear a song you like on the radio.

    And unless you can do a free trial for that CBS All Access thing, I don't think I'll be watching. (Is it too much to hope that the new series will be in black and white?)

    CBS All Access is also where The Stand will be (as well as all the new Star Trek stuff).

    If they get The Stand I'll have to at least try a free trial then. I don't really understand it. Why not show the shows on CBS, for a much wider audience? Do they show their current and past shows on this streaming service, or is it only new content? I'm just so sick of all the different streaming services. Wish they could all just be lumped up into one.

    Back to The Twilight Zone, what are everyone's favorite episodes? One of my personal favorites that I never hear much talk about is The Midnight Sun.

    Mae I'll have to look up The Time Element. I'm not sure I've heard of it before. I got the set for Christmas last year and I've been wanting to do a full rewatch of the series in order. There's probably even a handful that I haven't seen yet.

    If you have the Blu-ray set, The Time Element should be an extra for Season One. It's pretty much an episode of the show, great fun. I don't know if you have the DVD or Blu-ray set, but the Blu-ray edition also restores the episodes to their original airing versions with Rod Serling's previews of the next episode (a lot of these were missing from the DVD versions or only had the audio).
