Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 1

  • 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.
  • Apr 08, 2020
    Amazing TV Series that all started with this fantastic Season 1. This season has so many classic episodes; Walking Distance, The Lonely, Time Enough at Last, The Hitch-Hiker and The Monsters are Due on Maple Street. This ishow was definitely ahead of its time and most of the episodes still hold up today. Rod Serling did an episode on a guy falling in love with a Robot back in 1959.
  • Mar 02, 2020
    It's a classic show!
  • Feb 27, 2020
    The horrifying anthology series. The best, anthology series. Rod Serling's performance gives a mysterious feeling. With scary twists and amazing writing, The Twilight Zone is one of the best shows ever created.
  • Aug 08, 2018
    Simply incredible considering it was made in 1959... almost 60 years ago. The episodes no longer carry the shock value that they once did, but they still leave you thinking about them long after they have ended.
