    This review is from: The Twilight Zone: Season 5 [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)

    Fans of the cult classic CBS 1959-1964 television series “The Twilight Zone” will be happy to learn that by August, 2011 the entire series will see renewed life, yet again, on Blu-ray as the fifth and final season arrives in stores. The episodes have been restored to pristine condition and the set featutes an array of features that will more than please fans.

    Producers wisely pushed back the running time of “The Twilight Zone” to 30 minutes this season after airing the series the previous year in 60 minutes installments that made the stories lag somewhat. This year also features some of the best “Twilight Zone” episodes ever produced, among them “Uncle Simon” and “Living Doll” (my two personal favorites), “The Masks”, “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet”, and “Stopover in a Quiet Town”.

    First up is a list of all 36 “Twilight Zone” season 5 episodes along with their airdates, then I have included a list of the amazing bonus features, some never before-seen, not even on the DVD release. This is a five disc set.
