Movie Reviews

Four superb episodes! Terrific stuff!
Roger J. Buffington | Huntington Beach, CA United States | 05/02/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Twilight Zone is one of those productions that is quite literally timeless. Although there were numerous not-so-good episodes in the series, Volume 8 contains four pretty good episodes, including my favorite, the superb "Third from the Sun."

"Third from the Sun" is a mindblower, even if it is somewhat dated by its notion that there are other planets within the solar system that can support intelligent life. This is excellent science fiction (no spoilers here) and this episode is guaranteed to make a memorable impression if you have never seen it. This one, in fact, happens to be my favorite Zone episode ever, although opinions may differ.

The other three episodes are quite good, some serious and some not. "The Shelter" is a real classic. "To Serve Man" is funny with a touch of scariness. "The Fugitive" is quite watchable and a little on the cute side.

The DVD is a fine value, and I have repeatedly enjoyed watching these episodes."

"Rod Serling was amazing! I can't think of a Twilight Zone that wasn't worth watching."
A little hot sauce goes a long way.

"This is a beautiful compilation. This is back when rod stirling was in charge, i.e. the best time. This is the top of the top when it comes to science fiction, and proud to own it.

Now for the bad stuff,

The intro menu stinks. That eye that blinks and points to choices is a nice touch, but is unresponsive at times. Though the theme is good, it gets fairly annoying after a while, also that sound the eye makes when it choses something DUNNNNNAAANNNNN sound, is really really irritating.

Plus it being in black and white, and not really noticeably polished, i'd have hoped for more episodes shoved onto a dvd.

but still this is worth the money to get.
