Alternate Versions

The DVD release of the complete series (or "Season 1" as the packaging calls it) features a few changes to the opening title sequence. (1) The image of Rod Serling on the gallery wall was replaced with a spiral vortex. (2) The theme song has been changed from a piece that barely sounds like the original 1959 series theme to a piece that sounds exactly like the original theme. Consequently, the credit "Twilight Zone Theme Music Adapted by Don Harper" in the end credits has been removed on the DVD. See more »

Good casting, needs less predictable endings
15 January 2003 | by DerekLee1See all my reviews

I am a huge fan of the original, but certainly don't hold that against the new show. As with any remake in the entertainment industry (movies, music, television) I try not to compare the remake with the original and let them each stand on their own. I do the same here.

The casting of the show is fine. It's pretty cool to see popular actors and actresses (albeit most of them B-list) making guest appearances. The problem with the show is its predictability. Even the Hitler episode that everyone is raving about I saw coming from about halfway through the story. Maybe I've seen too many plot twists in other shows and movies that nothing is unexpected for me anymore. But if I can predict the ending 5 minutes into the episode, that's just bad writing. I think they've also lost the concept of what the "twilight zone" is. It's another dimension, of sight, of sound, blah blah blah. Yet the producers just seem to think if the story has even the slightest semblance of a twist, it'll work on this show. Come on, the guitar (wonder if its name was "Christine"?) episode has to be one of the worst pieces of garbage EVER on a TZ "product". Although the chick that got choked by the guitar strap WAS pretty hot...

I hope the show sticks around, because if it's done right, it could be a great Wednesday night sit-down. Maybe the writers should start watching 24 to see what a plot twist really IS, though. Better yet, just watch some original TZ eps. Even remake some of those. Now THERE'S an original concept...
