Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 1

  • Sep 03, 2022
    A beautiful series of entering the unknown: The Twilight Zone broke the boundaries of how storytelling could educate, develop, and move across the many genres that created a strong sense of being and must've felt 'alive' on television in the 50s and 60s. Its predecessor, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, also did this, though, I think The Twilight Zone made a serious and social comment, and that commitment, I feel, was needed at that time. It showed a more complicated and grounded world that had a sense of wonder, but also something that makes you feel and think about its validity and if you make a mistake, too. It also dealt with the ongoing and new issues of the time, some of which are still trending today, and the power it has through strength, vitality, and originality is what brings it to a great climax that many in our current century still appreciate and talk about. "Room, for one more, honey".

    Way beyond its time, have watched this original Twilight Zone so many times and it never gets old, yet it is. You don't get anything like this anymore. Sterling was a creative genius!
  • Apr 08, 2022
    An iconic show that is regarded as a cult classic and even has its own Disney theme park ride. Rod Sterling makes for a charming narrator and effortlessly transports the audience to... The Twilight zone!
  • Feb 22, 2022
    One of the most groundbreaking TV shows of all time. Rod Serling was a genius and with help from writers like Richard Matheson and Charles Beaumont, these episodes have inspired generations.
  • Mar 06, 2021
    Brilliant. Way ahead of its time.
  • Jan 21, 2021
    Very unique and cool show
  • Dec 08, 2020
    Whoa. Watch this show.
  • Jul 31, 2020
    Una serie que hay que ver antes de morir. Aborda temas que uno mismo se ha formulado, y que tiene la curiosidad de como será.
  • Jul 26, 2020
    The show normally has about a skit's worth of material and stretches it to a shows length.
  • Jun 24, 2020
    I purely love this series and Rod Serling is a great host.
