Tv Season Info
I don't expect the network will be able to generate a large viewership for this mediocre attempt at . . . well, you know.
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.
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?
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.
Conventional wisdom says anthologies don't work anymore. Here's to UPN for poking conventional wisdom in the eye.
The soft-spoken Whitaker practically phones in his role in the opener, which includes two passable stories that end decently but not spectacularly.
UPN's Zone is inconsistent, but that's probably unavoidable for an anthology that tells two stories a week.
Even when *not* compared to the 1959 original, "The Twilight Zone" is a failure on all fronts.
Even though the series isn't terrible, viewers would be better served by watching the original Twilight Zone.
