    This review is from: The Twilight Zone: Season 4 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    Thanks to the wonderful invention of Blue Ray we fans of “The Twilight Zone” can now enjoy the series in beautiful, pristine condition. In this set all 18 episodes of season 4 (BLUE RAY RELEASE ON MAY 17, 2011) have been restored from their original studio prints. I have both the entire series on DVD and have compared them with the Blue Rays that have already been made available and the difference is noticeable: the print is even more vibrant and eye-catching and it’s as if the characters come right at you on the screen. Another great asset to buying the Blue Rays are the extra bonuses that are not included on the DVD editions.

    Season four of “The Twilight Zone” began in January, 1963 after being cancelled by CBS in the spring of the previous year. It replaced the show that it had been cancelled for called “Fair Exchange”. In order to fill the one hout time slot CBS brought “The Twilight Zone” back in one hour installments, so although fewer episodes of season four were filmed they were extended beyond their normal thirty minute running time. Creator Rod Serling hated the new one hour format as he felt the writers had to write stories way beyond their worth in order to fill an hour of primetime programming.

    The list of special bonuses for this particular Blue Ray include 13 new audio commentaries by “Twilight Zone Companion” writer Marc Scott Zicree and other followers and critics of the series. All of the DVD bonuses are also included here and include interviews with guest-stars like Anne Francis and Morgan Brittany; 7 radio dramas; isolated scores for select episodes; and much more.

    I own all released twilight zone sets on blue ray and love them, but this is a bit of a slap in the face. my point of this review is that this fourth season has literally half the amount of episodes of most seasons… so why are we still paying the price of a full 36 episode set?
