    Was hoping that the series would be good, but after two seasons, I'm not surprised that it was cancelled.

    Like the first season it has some great episodes and few of them unwatchable, but at the end of the day, if you need a refreshing, odd and different tv show to compensate so much repetitive garbage there is on tv nowadays, give it a good try.

    While the quality of episode to episode isn't always on the same frequency again this final season when it shines its full of creative imagination and stylish direction

    I liked this season way better than the first one. I enjoyed it tremendously, and getting through the season went very fast.

    What a shame. The first season was excellent. It did justice to the classic Twilight Zone series while taking the formula in bold new directions. Unfortunately, the second season is full of stilted dialogue, characters acting in bizarre ways to match the planned plotting, and frequent giving speeches explaining the entire plots of episodes (poor Joel McHale deserves better). One or two solid episodes were solid, but the rest belong in an introductory screenwriting class.

    A huge, huge disappointment compared to the original.

    Definitely a step up from last years rather disappointing inaugural season. While you're there are still some pretty forgettable episodes, most of them actually work pretty well as a Twilight Zone story. The show might never really reach the heights of the original series but the stories that work do work pretty well. They are even some pretty clever twists on classic sci-fi concepts. Which is pretty much all you can I ask for these days. While it is not an effects-heavy show, you do see the budget cuts that CBS probably prescribed for the season. Nevertheless if the show continues on this trajectory I do have hopes for a pretty good third season. However the creators should really think about limiting the runtime of the episodes. Even the good episodes of this season tend to feel very drawn out, even if they are just about 40 minutes in length.
