What is it?

The 2019 American anthology web television series The Twilight Zone (Season 1).

What is it about?

This is how CBS All Access describes this web television show:

Viewers enter another dimension with Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s modern re-imagining of the classic.

CBS All Access’ The Twilight Zone anthology series will bring the original show’s legacy of socially conscious storytelling to modern-day audiences, exploring the human condition and holding a lens up to the culture of our times.

The Twilight Zone will debut with two episodes on Monday, April 1.

Following the series premiere, new episodes of the anthology series will be available on demand weekly on Thursdays beginning April 11, exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers.

The Twilight Zone is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Jordan Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Simon Kinberg’s Genre Films.

Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg serve as executive producers along with Win Rosenfeld, Audrey Chon, Glen Morgan, Carol Serling, Rick Berg and Greg Yaitanes.

The series is distributed internationally by CBS Studios International.

My Thoughts

Here are my thoughts about each episode with my final thoughts at the end:

The Comedian

This was among my least favorite episodes, most of the comedy segments were not funny (which was in some ways intentional, but they made them too unfunny), but I am impressed that they were able to make this episode as long as it was.

Tracy Morgan actually did a good job, and he did not act annoying like he usually does.

Nightmare At 30,000 Feet

This was among my favorite episodes, and it was more of what I was expecting for this show and it also felt a bit Black Mirror-like.

Replay

This this was one of the episodes that I probably rate in about the middle or among the bottom of my favorite episodes, I liked the message, and it was more relevant than some of the messages in some of the other episodes.

A Traveler

This was my among my favorite episodes, I like some the tension and mystery, and Steven Yeun did a surprisingly good job.

The Wunderkind

This episode was not bad, but it ended too abruptly and some of the things that happened were too unrealistic for you to believe that it would be possible.

Six Degrees Of Freedom

This episode was a bit disappointing, it was a slow burn with less interesting characters where not that much happened, it was not bad but it was not good; but it did feel and look more like a movie which was nice.

Not All Men

This was one of my least favorite episodes, it looked pretty good and it had potential, but the way that they went about their message was terrible and the message itself was flawed.

Point Of Origin

This was one of my favorite episodes, it surprised me with its mystery and twists and turns and science fiction and message, the message in this episode was better and more relatable than the previous episode.

The Blue Scorpion

This episode had an unclear message to me, it did surprise me by not going in the direction that I thought that they would, but I would rank this episode at the bottom of the middle or the top of my least favorite episodes.

Blurryman

This was my least favorite episode, it was very disappointing, and it was a terrible way to end this season; this was pretty bad like the final episode of Game Of Thrones (Season 8).

This was my first time ever watching a season of The Twilight Zone, I had higher hopes for this show, but I was disappointed because it was very hit and miss and there was not a stable message or feel or style to it so many episodes did not feel like episodes of The Twilight Zone to me.

To me they were often trying to push certain messages too hard in ways that did not work instead of focusing more on making something good and something that fits with The Twilight Zone.

I like Black Mirror and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams better than this, and so I hope that the next season is better.

The end,
