A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
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

Showrunner Philip DeGuere, Jr. shared the same agent as fantasy writer, George R.R. Martin. The agent provided a copy of Martin's fourth novel, "The Armageddon Rag", a rock and roll dark fantasy, to DeGuere because he was a Grateful Dead fan. DeGuere liked the novel so much that he planned to write and direct an adaptation, but the novel failed in sales. DeGuere and Martin stayed friends, and DeGuere recruited Martin for his first Hollywood position as a staff writer in this Twilight Zone outing. See more »
Original network episodes ran one hour, with two or three stories per instalment. These episodes were reedited into half hour episodes for syndication along with newly produced half-hour episodes, with each half hour consisting of a single story from the original one-hour version. See more »
Stories so unique they can only be found in....................
Rod Serling's series is resurrected and given new sparkle as these episodes were released in the mid-80's. They still capture the twist and intensity that the original Twilight Zone offered. Using a strong cast and many new names, at the time, the stories were able to keep viewers on the edge of their toes.
Season 1 has currently been released on DVD. Nostalgic enthusiasts who remember the show well may strongly be interested in adding this to their collection. Great stories like 'Button, Button', 'If She Dies', 'Kentucky Rye', and 'Nightcrawlers' have won fans over for the series.
I feel that in it's day, the people who set up the program schedules didn't really give it a chance. Though this is personal opinion, I believe that they had done that with several shows with strong potential. Great collection to add for any Zone Fanatic.
