Anyone watching it? I thought the first episode was awful, but I really enjoyed episodes two and three.
I saw that Comedian one

The original Serling series is my favorite of all-time.

I actually enjoyed the first episode (3/4 stars). Thought the second was solid with a weak ending (2.5/4) and thought the third was dreadfully written (1/4). Iím really hoping it rebounds.

That said, itís not entirely clear to me that a series rooted in overt political parables (like the original) can survive in our modern discourse.
Huge Twilight Zone fan here

First episode was mediocre at best. Could call the ending within the first 10 minutes of the show. Havenít seen any other episodes yet but really hope the first episode is one of the worst of the series.
Looks like it is on CBS All Access

Is that a premium channel above the local CBS station? The only Twilight Zone episodes listed on my cable is the old series.

Sorry nothing can beat the original Twilight Zone

Rod Serling was from my hometown- Binghamton. I had friends whose dads went to high school with him. Black and white film series that can't be beat!

Of the various reboots, I can't believe they never made a series fully in black and white. Somebody should have done that.
Top 3 all time favorite show

...I was surprised how harsh the review was.

The MUSIC was critial in the orignal series...

...the creepy soundtracks are what tied the episodes together, that is what is lacking in every reboot since.

Wonderful as it was, the original series had it's clunker episodes, but held it's continuity with similar direction/production approaches. Because of this, it's hard to tell the last season from the first.

My favorite all time as well.
