The Twilight Zone Companion is the complete, five-season (1959?64) show-by-show guide to one of television's greatest series. Zicree's well-written account is fascinating for even the casual fan. Coverage of each episode includes plot synopsis, Rod Serling's opening narration, behind-the-scenes stories from the original artists who created the series, and a complete list of cast and credits. As screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin (Ghost, Jacob's Ladder) said, ?In all my years of television viewing, no series resonated as deeply as The Twilight Zone. Even today, fragments of the forgotten episodes rise into my memory with surprising poignancy. The Twilight Zone was masterful storytelling, and this companion book, this compendium of old tales, is a remarkable gift to those who loved the series and to those who have yet to discover its magic.?

Well organized and put together. The author's personal position as a Hollywood insider certainly added a degree of legitimacy to the work, in general. However, the work is seriously marred by the fact we read mostly about Marc Zicree's personal opinions and anecdotes and very little about the actual twilight zone episodes. Indeed, some episodes have no more than a paragraph devoted to them, all of which is merely the author's opinion of the episode. Very unsatisfying. This deficiency is not helped by the fact that Mr. Zicree seems to passionately hate at least 50% of all twilight zones made, and whether or not his criticisms are valid, it is NOT what a die hard Twilight Zone fan wishes to pay money to read about. They wish to relive the pleasure of the episode by learning more indepth details, which they may not have known about, had they not read your book. Rather than expend ten pages on your withering dissection of a particularly reviled twilight zone episode, Mr. Zicree, perhaps we could have trivia about the actors, details about how the production of said episode went (including all relevant bloopers or mix-ups) or something else, similar, which would appeal to actual Twilight Zone fans. For a true fan, the excessively long passages devoted to negative criticism are so distracting they make the reading almost unbearable. Surely, you are aware that fans would prefer trivia or other snippets of information, which really are not all that hard to research, particularly for an insider, like yourself. True fans, such as I describe here, were your target market, Mr. Zicree, so either you need to hire a better marketing consultant, or you dropped the ball, as far as appropriate book concept goes. It's my understanding Mr. Zicree had a veritable monopoly on the Twilight Zone manual market for many years and that's likely why it was so popular, in the 80s and 90s. Luckily, nowadays, there are many competing works that cover the subject in a way much more appealing to those of us who actually like the Twilight Zone.

An indispensable book for me when I fell in love with the tv series growing up. ( )

I enjoyed this book as I haven't seen any episodes in a long time. But other reviewers are right, once you start reading the book you start to want to watch the entire series. ( )

Lots of background on each episode, including anecdotes from people who worked on the episodes. Whenever I see a Twilight Zone re-run, I get this book out for more "inside" information. My favorite episode is "Walking Distance" with Gig Young, and, apparently, a favorite of lots of people. It was written by Rod Serling himself and the strong, lovely theme is nostalgia and longing for the past which you can never recapture. The entry in this book describes where they produced it on the MGM lot, how they got Bernard Herrmann to write the music, etc. A great book. ( )

Who doesn't love The Twilight Zone? This book is a collection of background information regarding the show, as well as information on each episode. Great reading! ( )
