  • For the Twilight Zone aficionados, these are, to use a classic comic book-collecting phrase, MUST-HAVE-DOUBLE-BAG-ITEMS! Coming from someone who first taped every episode i liked off of broadcast TV, then bought the Columbia House VHS set, then the first DVD set from Image, and finally all 5 of the Blu-rays, I can say that there IS a marked upgrade in visual–and especially audio–quality of the Blu-rays, evident on some episodes more than others. If you have the previous set of DVDs, please don’t take this as meaning your sets are–get ready–OBSOLETE; they’re not, they’re great, and they’re still beautiful. Yes, the new Blu-rays have a couple more extras, and yes, as i just said, there is some image & sound upgrade–but again, the new Blu-rays are for aficionados, really. Aficionados who, in these tough economic times, have the disposable cash.
