Rod Serling's seminal anthology series focused on ordinary folks who suddenly found themselves in extraordinary, usually supernatural, situations. The stories would typically end with an ironic twist that would see the guilty punished.

Night Visions is an anthology series similar to The Twilight Zone - some tales are supernatural, others are just commentaries on twisted human nature. Each hour episode is made up of two half-hour episodes aired back-to-back.
An updated version of the famous 1960's TV series created by Rod Serling. Each week presents one to three tales about some unusual situation that turns out to be even more unusual than initially suspected. Whether the tone of the story is horror, suspense or humor, there is always a surprise twist at the end. Written by

There is something about the 1985 "Twilight Zone" that makes it fascinating. It's that unique charm of the 80's, the intelligent writing, its ability to surprise, the eerie and mysterious atmosphere -who could forget the intro? The show also brings back memories from those times, which makes it a personal experience. But "Twilight Zone" is above all a document of the 80's, so if you want to emerge yourself in that era, for study or pleasure, this is it.
Even if a few stories don't excel in originality, the narrator's spoken lines are always so well put, it's exhilarating. My favorite episodes include "I of Newton", "Kentucky Rye", "A Small Talent for War", "But Can she type", just to name a few. There are many others, priceless pieces of story telling that make outstanding television, especially today. "Twilight Zone" is always thought provoking, poignant, insightful and simply magic qualities that I couldn't find in the earlier black & white version or the more recent revival. The 80's version beats the original by far, in my opinion.
This is a review on the First Season of Twilight Zone. The second season is simply unwatchable. There's no trace of the Zone's mystery, the scripts, the actors and the direction are lousy. Stick to season 1.
