    Carrol, I was thinking about doing it that way, as well, but I realized they're cheaper at DeepDiscountDVD. For vols. 1-43, and the 2 Treasures discs, it's just $485.xx with FREE shipping as always. Adding $16.36 shipped for the Serling doc from DVDEmpire (DDD doesn't stock it), it comes to a grand total of $501.91 shipped. It doesn't have the book, but it does have the doc, which that TZ site doesn't include. Now what's the best way to order them? I'll probably do like 4 a month so about this time next year, I should have them all. Should I do it??

    David: the first 13 volumes (along with the two "Treasures" volumes) were indeed put out by Panasonic... but when Image continued the collection, the Panasonic logos were removed from further pressings of those earlier volumes. As for my collection, the "Treasures" volumes and 3-13 are Panasonic, but 1 and 2 are Image. It looks a bit strange on the shelf, but I'm not quite anal enough to replace them over a minor difference like that... yet, anyway. [​IMG]
    Panasonic definitely used the same masters as the laserdiscs/VHS releases from CBS/Fox. I had the VHS editions (2 episodes per tape), and the exact same episodes showed up on the Panasonic dvds!

    And by the way, David: the little town in "Nick Of Time" was Ridgeview, Ohio. [​IMG]

    Another thank you for reviving this thread; It reminded me that I still needed to pick up the Buster Keaton episode to add to my Keaton library.

    Cees and GaryEA, you're welcome. And to show your appreciation, you can donate money or TZ DVDs to my "I Want to Buy all 45 TZ DVDs Collection Fund" if you wish. [​IMG]

    Can any Canadians advise or suggest where to best purchase this set as I would also like to pick it up? DDD doesn't appear to ship free to Canada and Future Shop is (as always) out to lunch on their prices for the TZ discs.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Herb.

    Reading this thread - and the link to Johns Twilight Zone Page - is bringing back some great memories.

    My favorite episode, I think, is the one where there is a wager between two men that one of them cannot go an entire year without speaking. I remember that he is placed in a glass cage and there is, of course, a shocking twist at the end.

    Anyone recall the name of this episode?

    Jon

    Jon: The episode in question is "The Silence." Great episode, very Hitchcockian. One of the few TZs to be completely grounded in reality (no sci-fi or supernatural elements), and a marvelous performance by Franchot Tone.
    Hmmmm.... think I'll go watch it right now. [​IMG]

    I imagine most everyone is aware of this, but perhaps some of you who own the post-volume #26 dics don't know you have Easter Eggs on your discs comprised of isolated music scores (a few by Bernard Herrmann, Jerry Goldsmith, etc.)?

    I bumped this thread up nearly a month ago, saying I was going to start buying all the TZ discs. I later decided not to because I've been buying too many discs lately. Tonight, I went to www.image-entertainment.com to do my daily search of newly-announced titles, and saw that they posted their December releases. Guess what I saw listed among them?

    Outstanding! That'll tip it over for me. That should work out (assuming generous preorder/online discount) to around $325-$375 for the whole series!

    Where do I sign up?

    [Edit: Ahh, here's where I sign up. DVD Planet has these up for a preorder price of $69.99 each, which would work out to $334 for 43 discs. Think I'll wait for a bit to see if anyone puts them up cheaper.]

    Is the original version of the pilot episode available on any volume other than the Treasures set?

    Scott: Yes it is! It can be found on the final volume (43). Wait, do you mean the original (broadcast) version, or the earlier version that never aired (different opening, narrator, etc.)? The broadcast version is on the Treasures volume, and the rare pilot version is on 43.

    Well these sets are not going to be good news for me. I have already purchased about a third of the series, but not in sequential order. That means that I would not be able to buy any of these groups of 10 without getting some repeats. Does anyone know if the original volumes will remain available?
