The Twilight Zone

Critics Consensus

Despite some worthy tales and robust guest spots, this update of The Twilight Zone seems to have misplaced the key to imagination.

Critic Reviews for The Twilight Zone Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (8)

I don't expect the network will be able to generate a large viewership for this mediocre attempt at . . . well, you know.

May 2, 2018 | Full Review…

UPN's inert reprise of the Rod Serling-created/hosted classic that famously addressed a "fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man." That sense of exploration is absent from this new version.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

It is, like most attempts at anthology series in recent years, just OK.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

So much for unlocking doors with a key called imagination.

Apr 3, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

In the pilot, both contained not-so-great actors reading not-so-suspenseful scripts. Why won't Hollywood let the sun finally set on The Twilight Zone?

Mar 11, 2020 | Full Review…

Does it have the wit of the original melodramas, which were introduced by Rod Serling? Does it have the ability to make you laugh, shudder and nod knowingly, sometimes all at once?... the answer is a decisive yes and no.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Conventional wisdom says anthologies don't work anymore. Here's to UPN for poking conventional wisdom in the eye.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

The soft-spoken Whitaker practically phones in his role in the opener, which includes two passable stories that end decently but not spectacularly.

Apr 3, 2020 | Full Review…

UPN's Zone is inconsistent, but that's probably unavoidable for an anthology that tells two stories a week.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Even when *not* compared to the 1959 original, "The Twilight Zone" is a failure on all fronts.

Sep 4, 2019 | Full Review…

Even though the series isn't terrible, viewers would be better served by watching the original Twilight Zone.

Sep 4, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

The explanation for the perseverance with The Twilight Zone is that Viacom owns the rights to the concept, so it has nothing to lose except further diminishing the name of one of TV's most cherished series.
