The Twilight Zone: Season 1 Reviews

February 10, 2021
Remakes are always dicey, but what the heck -- there's not enough scary stuff on TV.
April 3, 2020
So much for unlocking doors with a key called imagination.

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

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.
April 3, 2020
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?

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.

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.
September 5, 2019
Rod Serling's fabulous series goes through the remake mill and comes up with so-so results that fail to capture the psychologically disturbing nature of so many of the original episodes.
September 5, 2019
UPN's Zone is inconsistent, but that's probably unavoidable for an anthology that tells two stories a week.
September 4, 2019
Even when *not* compared to the 1959 original, "The Twilight Zone" is a failure on all fronts.
September 4, 2019
Even though the series isn't terrible, viewers would be better served by watching the original Twilight Zone.

The new stories are hit and miss, but it's interesting to see two remakes of old classic Twilight Zones - "Eye of the Beholder" (using Serling's original script) and an updated terrorist-minded "Monsters Are Due on Maple Street."

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

Don't miss "Evergreen," with the ultimate solution to the teenager problem.
