The Twilight Zone: Season 1 Reviews

April 3, 2019
Why is this merely good, not great? The main problem is that there just isn't any sense of suspense or jeopardy.
Full Review | Original Score: 7/10
April 3, 2019
Though the series has been around since 1958, it still feels like it has endless potential to rattle us.
April 2, 2019
...often short on surprise and subtlety.
April 2, 2019
It's just a matter of waiting for the show to catch up. But I've waited in worse places.
April 2, 2019
Overall, though, this Trip Advisor doesn't hesitate to recommend another journey to... THE TWILIGHT ZONE.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 2, 2019
The fact is, the original Zone didn't always stick the landing either. But Jordan Peele and his team have, so far, found that Serling groove that has so often eluded reboots of the show in the past.
Full Review | Original Score: 8.4/10
April 2, 2019
This show's best charms are not the ones displayed in plain sight, which means it's not going to be for everyone.
April 2, 2019
This new, inclusive, equally sharp Zone is thrilling and addictive.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
April 2, 2019
This Twilight Zone fulfills all the basic requirements of competence, but seems to have a limited ability to improve upon, or engage with, the deep-seated anxieties of the original.
April 2, 2019
In all, this new version of The Twilight Zone has a lot going for it.
April 2, 2019
Staying true to the ethos of The Twilight Zone, the episodes are free-standing and timeless. They are, nevertheless, unforgivably long.
April 2, 2019
The 10-episode "Zone" can't help but fall short in comparison to the 1960s anthology.
April 2, 2019
It's a strong start, with a diverse cast, gothic look and atmosphere. Peele's "Twilight Zone" merits more trips into its weird corridors.
April 1, 2019
Does not have nearly enough Jordan Peele in it.
April 1, 2019
It's hard not to let the sobering shadow of "The Comedian" chill the reaction to the much, much better "Nightmare."
Full Review | Original Score: B-
April 1, 2019
As for Nightmare at 30,000 Feet, it's a case of a competent TV thriller, but not a particularly memorable or unique one, with little to say about the human condition that isn't immediately obvious.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.8/10
April 1, 2019
The Twilight Zone desperately needs Peele to take the reins, but at this point it's probably too late.
April 1, 2019
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.
April 1, 2019
This new series shows signs of developing that distinctive voice, and certainly Peele is capable of it.
April 1, 2019
It's a reminder that of all the things "The Twilight Zone" used to be and still is, it was hardly ever about the art of subtlety.
