The Twilight Zone: Season 5 (1963 - 1964)



Critic Consensus: The highlights of the final The Twilight Zone season are the fine appearances from some veteran actors, although portions of these episodes are diminished by unfortunate clichés.

Critic Reviews for The Twilight Zone Season 5

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

Technophobic and misogynistic... you're better than this, Twilight Zone.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

At once poignant, eerie, and instantly memorable, the ahead-of-its-time (pun intended) program could teach viewers a lesson just as easily as it freaked them the heck out.

Sep 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Even in the less successful episodes there's often something to enjoy, perhaps a mediocre script enlivened by the performance of a veteran actor or a young up-and-comer.

May 9, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Some of the absolute best episodes of The Twilight Zone explore the stigmas and fears around mental illness-namely the paranoid feeling that no one around them will believe them.

May 9, 2018 | Full Review…

Both the performances from Nelson and Malone and Earl Hamner Jr.'s script work to make them two of the most believable and well fleshed out characters in the series' history.

May 9, 2018 | Full Review…

It sneaks in subversion by pretending to be exactly what it's subverting... Perhaps my favorite TV drama ever made.

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

William Shatner blessed us with his overacting in this airborne episode.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

This paranoid episode does for toys what Jaws did for the deep end of the pool.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

All over the map... Rod Serling had overworked himself into a state of total burnout from which he would never fully recover.

May 8, 2018 | Full Review…

If it were possible to convert nightmares into electricity, we'd have all the power we could ever need thanks to The Twilight Zone.
