Again, though, Image has not confirmed the existence of the aforementioned episodes on the Blu-ray.
Both The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series and The Twilight Zone: Fan Favorites street on June 5th.
I'm having quite a dilemma here. I ordered the 5 separate seasons from Amazon this weekend for $167. I figured next to that deal of the day from January, this was as good as it's going to get for now. Then after ordering they announced this set. My bundle just arrived not 10 minutes ago, it's here right next to me now, unopened. I don't know whether to open it and start enjoying or send it back and wait for a decent price on this set after it is released. The only extra I can think of is the "Submitted For Your Approval" documentary, which I already own as part of the DVD collection and do not mind not having it in HD. So should I just stick with this bundle of separate releases? The DVD collection had shoddy packaging and this could be avoided if the Blu-ray set has similar packaging. Decisions, decisions...
These aren't going to be any different than the individual releases. It will be the same discs merely repackaged. It even points that out in the article. I'm betting at most there will be a bonus "book" or something of that sort. Wait to see the price, and buy whichever one is cheaper.
I don't exactly see Twilight Zone as being a big seller. Though no doubt a consistent seller over the long run. Because of this, there's no doubt in my mind that as a business model, selling a complete all-in-one set is much easier than selling 5 smaller sets.
If you bought the complete season sets at a bargain price (Like a lot of us did during Amazons sale) I wouldn't worry about this release unless you're obsessed with the new cardboard box it comes in.
Gojiboy i would say keeping what you got. Either your a fan or not. There will always be a "lower price" some time down the line as it is you paid about $33 to 35 bucks at the $167 price you gotem at. I took advantage on the new Years sale as it was well worth it at $150( at $30 per season), and im a huge fan of the show to begin with. You could not ask for a more perfect set of disc with all the bonus stuff they add. I can't think of anything new they would offer zone fans that they dont already have in the season sets.
No big deal...supplements are the same. I got the bundle from Amazon in January for an astonishing price, have been enjoying them for a couple months, and am not sweating it at all -- even if the price somehow manages to beat that Deal of the Day.
This is exactly the type of Twilight Zone complete series box set I've been waiting for. I'll preorder it and look forward to upgrading my current DVD version of the complete series. Great news indeed.
Here's hoping they don't screw those of us who bought the seasons individually (if none of us did there wouldn't BE a box set) by putting in suppliments not in the original sets...and I'm still waiting on a decent price for seasons 4 and 5 (i.e. under $40.00 each)
Rod Serling was a genius who changed my life. Get your hands on Twilight Zone anyway you can. Every season on BD is incredible. If I didn't already own all 5 seasons on BD, AND the DVD box set, this would be a day one no-brainer.
The Twilight Zone is essential viewing and the greatest TV show of all time, in my humble opinion.
