News & Interviews for The Twilight Zone: Season 1
The original "Twilight Zone"... addressed complex social issues indirectly at a time when network TV was mostly escapist. But television is different now... So simply updating the spirit of the original "Twilight Zone" just isn't good enough.
This isn't really a reboot; it doesn't even qualify as fan fiction. With the exception of one superior episode, "Replay," it's hard to conceive that an artist as prodigiously talented and thoughtful as Peele is creatively involved at all.
As engaging as the series is, it also serves as an unsettling reflection of our troubled times-one that can no longer be ignored.
Not one of the four previewed episodes fully hits the mark established by the classic Serling series. They're too long, too slow to develop, and -- for the most part -- much too predictable.
So far, the new Twilight Zone is a little uneven, but so was the old one. It doesn't lack experimental energy or visual imagination; it just seems to be still developing its story voice.
