Bit relevant to my reply in bold:

It'll only be worth rejoicing if they kept it in its original 4:3 ratio. Whenever I hear of someone remastering something in high def, I get worried that they'll try to pull a Kung Fu Season 1 MARred release on us.

Has a sale been announced for this year, or are you simply assuming there will be one based on last year? Hope there is one, though.

I'm assuming it will happen again, the shear amount of sales from people should be enough to have it again.

My DDD 20% Off Sale wishlist has gotten pretty large so they better

I am the last person you can call cheap but $120 is a lot of money for just one single season.



How many seasons did the original Twilight zone air?

When you get DVDs priced at $60 or more is when I question if it is worth it.

Then again it comes after Xmas.....

funny, but the 20% off sale is the first thing i think of whenever this new remastered version gets mentioned.
i held back on the single issues, and i passed up the previous collections at DDD withother sales, because i was waiting for it to be collected chronologically-
i was disappointed in some of the transfers on the older discs anyway so this is great news.

but, brother, is there a lot of big buck packages coming out in the last half of this year- a 1/2 dozen tv sets that would normally be a 'must buy' but the frequency and cost is going to make me have to slam on the brakes and drive a little more slowly for a while.

Well, the old sets were about $90, right? And then they put money into remastering the eps (I think).

$120 is worth it as long as it will be the last time I have to buy this freaking show which I just happen to love very much.

This will be the 4th time I've purchased the Twilight Zone series.
I bought it once on VHS then I bought the individual volumes and then the 9 disc 5 volume sets.

The old versions were originally released as single DVDs with 3-4 episodes (4 half-hour eps, or 2 half-hour eps and one 1-hour ep) per DVD at a MSRP of $25 each.

The prices was later reduced to $15 per single DVD.

And then these DVDs were repackaged into five 9-DVD sets priced at $100.00 each.

Dammit!

First I collected about half of the single disc releases, then the first box sets were announced.

So, I managed to ebay the individual discs and purchased all five of the box sets a few months ago.

I haven't had any time to even watch them yet, and now the season sets are coming out.

Same thing is happening with "Star Trek" TOS - after finally giving up waiting on season sets, I started collecting the individual discs, and then, of course, the season sets were recently announced.

I can't win! That's it, I'm never buying another DVD again. Well, maybe not.

From now on, if you guys want a better release of a film, box set, tv show, etc., just let me know and I'll purchase what's currently available - that way you can be assured that a better release will be announced within a matter of days.

The 5 box set (which I got for $250 total) is really pretty nice, as long as you aren't anal about chronological order or extras.

I got it, and am satisfied with it. The show looks better even on these disks than they did when I watched them originally.

That is good and I hope it is correct!

I bought the previous collection 1 set for $44 at Wal-Mart(could be a misprice,but i'm not complaining,hehe). I was thinking of just picking up the previous sets,but noticed it lacked subtitles and captions.

I have met this hot deaf woman,and been getting more serious you could say. She loves the TZ,as well as horror/cult films in general. Unfortunately the majority of the horror/cult films she likes are released without captions or subtitles(basically all Blue Underground releases etc). So she can't enjoy them and I'd hate to purchase all the previous TZ sets and she is unable to view them properly.

I am not made of money,so I don't know when I would get the Season sets. I guess buying one at a time,every so often would be the smartest route.

I have 2 of the 5 previous boxsets, so I've been holding off until I see how this new set compares to the old set. Chronological order is nice but not a deal-maker.

I've had the upcoming TZ season sets for a few weeks now. Two things:

1) Amazon is wrong. The original-series set does not have subtitles or captions. I haven't checked the '80s series, but Image rarely puts captions on any of its releases, so I doubt it does either.

2) People have complained about the price, but I'm not sure if they realize everything this set has. Most of the episodes have some kind of related supplement--audio commentary by a star, audio interviews, isolated scores, radio adaptations and more--all produced by Paul Brownstein, the man behind the incredible Dick Van Dyke Show DVDs. The episodes also look better than I've ever seen them, and I've been watching them on a 90-inch screen vs. a 36-inch TV set for the old discs. Finally, the set includes the best liner notes ever included with a DVD: The complete "The Twilight Zone Companion," by Marc Scott Zicree, among the most definitive compendiums for any TV show ever created. The book has been resized to fit in with the set, but is otherwise unabridged. That's an incredible extra. Zicree provided the source material for some of the extras, such as the audio interviews.
