  • 1985 TWILIGHT ZONE series coming to DVD!

    If you're looking to spend that Christmas money from grandma look no further than the Season 1 set for the 1985 version of The Twilight Zone hitting DVD on Dec 28, 2004.

    JMS was story editor for the series, though my brain is a little foggy on how long his exact tenure was. He also wrote about ten or so scripts.

    The first season also included a pre-Moonlighting Bruce Willis in the Harlan Ellison story "Shatterday" and of course Ellison's great "Paladin of the Lost Hour."

    Wooo-Hoooo!

    I remember the one where there was a monster on the wing of a plane. Didn't the show originally air on HBO? IMDb will tell you how long JMS was involved with the show.
    Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

      Unless there was an episode with the monster on the wing, it was a part of Twilight Zone - The Movie, which JMS was not a part of.

        As they say in da hood...my bad, dog!

        Now it's coming back to me. Wasn't the movie a collection of several short stories?

          Actually the movie version of "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" was a remake of an original series episode starring- William Shatner!

            Yeah, I saw the original. At least some of it.

              Shatner and Lithgow

              A really funny cross-over of the Terror at 20,000 feet was on Third Rock when Shatner guest starred as the Big Giant Head.

              Lithgow and clan go to the airport to meet Shatner and they ask about Shatner's flight in. Shatner said it was fine, except there was this thing out on the wing. Lithgow's response: "You saw it, too?!?!"

              Made me chuckle.

              Sorry, off topic.

              I'm VERY happy the remake is coming out. There were some terrifying stories there that gave me the serious jibblies. I was in junior high and I have vivd memories about a giant spider in on ep and another ep where this kid's parents turned into monsters around "mid-night." Maybe now I can see the end of that one (couldn't bear to finish watching that ep when I was 12).

                Not directly related... but still interesting TZ stuff (I have yet to watch it, but read good comments):

                  The newest incarnation of TZ done by Ira Behr of DS9 was pretty bad, at least comparativley. The other day I was watching it and I didn't even know it (until a commercial), and I was thinking "this is bad" but there was this hot woman with a sexy European accent in one story, so I left it on. She reminded me of the Baroness from GI Joe, who I have been infatuated with since 2nd grade. Unfortunately, the next story featured "David" from 90210, and it was unbearable.

                    Do you want to see something really scarey?

                    Great gag off Thirdrock jcbatz,

                    Third rock was one of those shows I would have loved to have seen but it was always on at a time when I was doing something so I missed it.

                    Some of the 80' Twilight Zones were very good as indeed were some of the New Outer Limits.

                    I'm not sure if I'd buy the dvd's though. I love JMS and would move mountains for the guy but would you buy every JMS penned episode of Murder She Wrote?

                    Why? Why did it have to be Murder She Wrote?
                    (sorry I so hate that show)
                    I have the wings for Bingo.

                      I liked the Baroness too.

                        I finally found my 'Tales from the New Twilight Zone' book to check on this. It looks like this release won't be the ones JMS was story editor for. From JMS's preface:

                        "From the very first episode of The Twilight Zone, broadcast on 2 October 1959, through the second incarnation that ran on CBS from 1985 through 1987, and the final batch of episodes produced under our jurisdiction that first aired between 25 October 1988 and 16 April 1989, The Twilight Zone has always been about stories, about ordinary people confronting extraordinary situations."

                        Hopefully the next batch will be the JMS touched ones.

                        Jan
                        "As empathy spreads, civilization spreads. As empathy contracts, civilization contracts...as we're seeing now.

                            Anthology shows

                            After reading this and thinking about the great anthology shows of the past. Twilight Zone etc.

                            I thought a Tales of B5 show would be something I'd love to see.

                            The small guys on the edge of the story like the one about the tech boys in season 5.(A View From the Gallery?)
                            Losely connected to the many archs of the story but not dependant on them.

                            (I hope this doesn't count as a story idea, I make no claim for this notion, B5 is JMS's not mine)
