    I never saw any of these. How do they rate compared to the 1985 series?

    Several notches below even the 80's version. There were a couple of decent ones, and even a sequel to an original episode, but overall, it was a real bore.

    I'd assume so. New Line delivers. Too bad they have a smallish TV library...

    I am more excited about getting the 80's version. Talk about a show that has been chopped up in syndication.

    I will be getting this set myself. I am not sure how it rates compared to the 1980's version... I don't remember ever seeing the 1980's version. but I did see some of these and I really enjoyed them. [​IMG]

    I agree with Steve P. The more recent UPN series didn't really cut it. I like Forrest Whitaker allot as an actor but he was not a good choice for host. The 80s series was very good. The writing staff included Harlan Ellison and J. Michael Straczynski both of Babylon 5 fame. Many of the scripts were nominated and some won for Writer's Guild and other awards. That was a quality product in my estimation.

    Does anyone know if the 80s Twilight Zone will see release in the near future? Another 80s series, "Max Headroom" is one I'd like to see as well.
