There is a higher definition, beyond that which is known to man... - The Twilight Zone: Series 1 review by PaulD

Spoiler Alert
13/06/2011

Finally, The Twilight Zone, arguably the most influential anthology show comes to bluray in the uk. Gloriously presented in stunning hi-definition this set features not only 36 episodes of Season One but a whole host of extras including the never-before-seen pilot episode, multiple audio commentaries, interviews, radio plays, and much more, meaning that even if you've seen the episodes before there's still a whole wealth of material to be discovered. Freemantle Media have done an excellent job in presenting incredible quality transfers and you really will be blown away at how good a tv show over 50 years old looks today. Stand-out episodes on this set for me include "The Hitch-Hiker", "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street" and "Time Enough at Last". With subsequent seasons also due for bluray release (including the often under-appreciated 1980's revival series) it's a fantastic time to be a Twilight Zone fan.
