Season 3 and the episodes from this classic series have once again been given the whole super-duper treatment. Good work guys!!
By now the Zone’s quality had slipped a little. Still,eps like “Nothing in the Dark”, “The Dummy”, “To Serve Man” and “Five Characters in Search of an Exit” remain unforgettable and still influence tv/ movies today.
Features in this package include:
-commentaries from William Windom, Leonard Nimoy, Cliff Robertson, Lois Nettleton, and Billy Mumy.
- teasers for next week’s shows
- isolated soundtracks
- audio recollections from a bunch of contributors
- Serling’s Night Gallery previews for next week’s eps
It’s all good and dare I say it…gets better with Season 4 and the hour long episodes.
I’m totally enjoying the remastered “Definitive Season” releases with all the included bonus features. #3 here looks like another winner with a crisp digital transfer! Kudos to Image Entertaiment and CBS DVD for an excellent job!
Meanwhile, I’ve got a stack of 3-4 episode DVD’s and 2 episode VHS copies looking mighty lonely. For everyone in this situation, I think a good home might be a local library or even better a senior living centre. That would be a good demographic to donate to.
