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…

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

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

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

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…

This is about as skin-crawling as episodes get.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

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.

Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 2

½

"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.
