    The only good thing on Syfy’s TWZ marathons.

    It’s too bad Syfy doesn’t have the latest masters of the series. The newest ones are much cleaner than the early-’90s transfers Syfy airs.

    I used to like these on Syfy until I realized that Syfy sometimes ‘cuts’ the eps. I didn’t realize that until I started rewatching the show on MeTV. Syfy must trim for ads I guess but it’s kind of annoying.

    The Twilight Zone was one of the first TV programs to be the subject of marathon programming many decades ago. Not the first, but, one of the first.
    The Twilight Zone was recently voted one of the best written programs in the history of TV, after The Sopranoes (1) and Seinfield (2).
    An execellent program that discussed issues that other shows tended to stay away from such as civil rights and the growing war in South Vietnam.
    It’s a shame that the show was Cancelled by CBS, because of poor ratings, and maybe because it dealt with problems some people in the country did not want to talk about at the time.
    Outstanding show. Most episodes of the original program are classics.

    I agree with Cimmer: Edited for time, so the network can air more commericals, is very frustrating to watch.

  • TV Viewer

    The best written TV shows according to a recent poll.
    1. The Sopranos
    2. Seinfeld
    3. The Twilight Zone
    4. All in the Family
    5. M*A*S*H

    @cimmer – All syndicated shows are edited for time, because there are more commercials nowadays. If you’ve seen reruns of M*A*S*H or I Dream of Jeannie or, well, pretty much anything from back in the day, it’s been edited.

    That’s why God invented DVDs. (Yes, I’m pretty sure it was God.)
