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 image of Rod Serling can be seen during the opening title sequence in the TV version only. Rod's image was replaced with a spiral vortex on the DVD release. See more »
You're traveling through another dimension, a dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind. A journey into a wondrous land whose boundaries are that of imagination. You are entering the Twilight Zone.

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 »
the original twilight zone is one of the greatest shows ever aired. this new version is crap by comparison. i read the synopsis of the episode on one night, and it sounded like one of my favorites from the original series. i watched it and soon realized that it was a shoddy remake. it was predictable, trite, and boring. one of the things i love about the original is that you have to watch it from the begining because the show is so involved. if you miss even the first minute, you get lost, i missed the first 5 minutes of this, and i still knew what was going to happen within the next 5. the original is creative and suspensful, and fun to watch. often it doesn't even show a whole story, but just a glimpse at some outrageous situation. this show tries to show a message and tie the story up in a nice little bow. it's not the worst thing i've ever seen, but it pales in comparison to the original.
