Now Available: "The Twilight Zone: Season 1" on Blu-ray
It goes without saying that "The Twilight Zone" is one of the most famous and influential television shows in horror history. Episodes were typically a mix of sci-fi, horror and fantasy elements and concluded with a twist ending. Created by the late Rod Serling, the series ran a total of 5 seasons with 156 total episodes.
I don't really think I need to go on and on about how great this show is, so I'll just give you an overview of the comprehensive special features that the blu-ray has to offer. Not only will you be viewing all 36 episodes of the first season in high definition (some popular episodes from season 1 include "Time Enough at Last" and "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street"), but the special features list includes all of the features from "The Definitive Collection" DVD set and more. The best part? It's already on store shelves, so there's no need to wait!
