The Twilight Zone – Season 3 (1961-1962) – By Jason S. Lockard

The music so simplistic yet so haunting. It could only be The Twilight Zone! I received Image Entertainment’s release of The Third Season of The Twilight Zone and I have to say I was ecstatic! I love this old classic and every year when sci-fi channel would run a marathon I’d be right there.

The third season was filled with 37 half hour episodes featuring stars such as Carol Burnett, Robert Redford, Charles Bronson, Dean Stockwell, James best, Elizabeth Montgomery, Leonard Nimoy and many more. Some of the best episodes of this season include; ‘A Game of Pool’: Fats Brown returns from the grave for one last game. ‘Death’s Head revisited’ A former German SS captain returns to Dachau concentration camp and begins reminiscing on the power he enjoyed there, until he finds himself of trial by those who died at his hands. ‘The Midnight Sun’ When the Earth falls out of orbit, two women try to cope with increasingly oppressive heat in a nearly abandoned city. ‘Dead man’s Shoes’ A homeless man takes the shoes of a dead gangster and steps into his life. ‘To Serve Man’ An alien race comes to earth, promising peace and sharing technology. A linguist and his team set out to translate the alien’s language, using a book whose title they deduce is "To Serve Man". ‘The Dummy’ Ventriloquist Jerry Etherson is convinced that his dummy, Willie, is alive and evil. These are just some of the standouts to me, but there is not a bad one in this entire season of sci-fi entertainment.

While this 5 disc DVD set has no bonus features, you get 37 full unedited episodes in pristine quality and the DVD menus are just beautiful. Who could ask for anything more?

So if you enjoy the weird and strange; The Twilight Zone is just classic and you can’t find the third season any more reasonable than $29.98 from Image Entertainment. So head over to www.WatchImage.com or your local DVD provider and get your copy and take a trip on the second season of this ground breaking series.
