Critic Reviews for The Twilight Zone Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

A downside of our technological advances is that all of the older sci-fi based on a collective distrust of gadgets is now laughably antiquated.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The visceral rush of this particular episode was followed soon after by a philosophical one. These were scares you could learn by.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The comedy episodes are disposable, the scary ones are gold.

Oct 31, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

In its second season, the show took some risks-some worked... and some didn't... but the overall impression is one of a solid, smart collection of genre tales which are greater than the sum of their parts.

Top Critic

There wasn't a lot of experimentation like this going on on television in the early '60s, and if some of the elements... can seem a little broad to modern eyes, that thought is canceled out, I think, by just how gutsy all of this is.

May 1, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

"Twenty Two" is basically a prequel to Final Destination, but I mean that as a compliment.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The season features consistently solid, varied and often vastly underrated episodes.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

This is about as skin-crawling as episodes get.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The main allure of this episode was the complete absenceof dialogue until the very end.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

Its twist ending... is one for the ages.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

The Twilight Zone continues to be shocking and deeply creepy - the stuff nightmares are made of.

Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 2

  • May 12, 2018
    "You're moving into a land of both shadow and substance, of things and ideas. You've just crossed over into...The Twilight Zone." Having proven itself, The Twilight Zone delivers even more incredible sci-fi and fantasy stories in its second season. Featuring such classic episodes as "The Howling Man," "Nick of Time," "Eye of the Beholder," "The Odyssey of Flight 33," and "The Obsolete Man," Season 2 is especially strong, with a clear focus on the themes of the series. Additionally, there are some format changes; including Rod Serling coming out in front of the camera for his introductions, and an experiment with shooting on video as a cost cutting measure. Yet the show still maintains an impressive list of guest stars, such as William Shatner, Art Carney, Burgess Meredith, and Cliff Robertson. Taking the series deeper into the realms of the fantastical, The Twilight Zone: Season 2 is extraordinarily thought-provoking and compelling.

    One of the best series ever, and one of the best horror stories (though it's not too scary). Very good scenes with special effects. Highly recommend.
