Audience Reviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 1

  • Sep 29, 2022
    where is the poetry and the universal quality of writing ? where is twilight zone ?
  • Jun 30, 2022
    Wow. Am I the only one willing to be "brave" enough to say Jordan Peele is completely overrated? Or will I be labeled a racist too? When the the very first few seconds of the premiere episode is an Indian man telling an unfunny joke about the 2nd Amendment, which he and the writers clearly do not understand, you know you are in trouble. I have been a lifelong Twilight Zone fan. This is pure garbage.
  • Jun 13, 2022
    bastardized, in a word. no respect, no ambition, no creativity. awful.
  • May 09, 2022
    It felt watered down in comparison to its source material. I felt that the stories were rarely compelling, and the twists weren't as thought-provoking as the original.
  • Apr 18, 2022
    The creators of the show need to learn the old lesson that two wrongs don't make a right. Not everything needs to be a podium. Would have been nice for once to just escape current events and watch a really good reboot of a classic. Putting aside the constant blatant rural America bigotry and racist overtones, the stories were simply flat out flat. Had high hopes from someone who gave us "Get Out."
  • Feb 12, 2022
    Let's just change the name of the show to The Wokelight Zone.
  • Nov 27, 2021
    OMG can we please stop with the over the top pandering moralizing injected into so many shows and movies these days. This reboot is horrible. The twilight zony aspects of the story lines have potential if they were made the focus of the episode placed within a realistic version of the world as it exists, but they get overshadowed by the "two by four to the back of the head" delivery method of social justice warrior pandering injected into every episode. Its so over the top it renders them unwatchable.
  • Oct 22, 2021
    As a huge Twilight Zone fan I had hoped that they would be true to the original. That being said adaptation was not terrible. There was a certain "je ne sais quoi" that is missing. Rod Stirling will always be one of my favorite sci-fi figures after creating one of the best and enthralling shows of his time. The fact that most of the original episodes were filmed and written in just a matter of day is a testament to the creative genius that is Rod Stirling. This modern take on the Twilight Zone, while not bad in it's own right, is nowhere near as bold and original as its predecessor. The stories seem a bit lack luster and predictable while the twists seem almost recycled and played out. While the original may have borrowed heavily from literature and stories of the time, this version seems to do so in a less original way.

    Awful Interpretation
  • Jun 07, 2021
    Some of the episodes are fantastic, like "Replay". Others, like "Point of Origin" are fine. "The Comedian" was on the "what?" side even though Kumail Nanjiana (check him out in Men's Journal Nov/Dec 2021) does his best with slight material. (Season 2's "Ovation" clarifies the "what".) The extras on the Season One DVDs are great and serve to remind us that the original "Twilight Zone" had much social commentary, as does this reboot. 2.5 stars for the mixed quality of the episodes, but another star, for 3.5, for the special features.
