I have never seen the old "Twilight Zone" but heard a lot about it so my expectations of a "modern" adaptation were quite high... and apparently way off. None of the episodes had a particularly interesting gimmick or explored that in any meaningful way. Instead the episodes end up being quite boring, sometimes goofy and just not very good... this also partly because in 2019 you have to include an _important_ message in each episode, regardless of cost.

Just got done with the pilot episode (The Comedian) of the new Twilight Zone and .... wow .... all I can say is that it'd better step up it's game . The first episode was was not lacking in acting talent , the story on the other hand was absolutely boring and unoriginal . It was a rip-off of several well known ideas . The first thing that came to my mind was "Death Note" mixed with a backwards "It's A Wonderful Life". The story was predictable and had zero surprises . Strangely enough , in 1957 , a pre-Twilight Zone Rod Serling adapted a novel for an episode of a TV show called Playhouse 90 . That episode was also called "The Comedian" , it shared NOTHING other than name in common with the new Twilight Zone episode . It's a crime to attach Serling's name to this episode , it was very difficult to sit through the whole thing .

Stopped watching at episode 6. What a bunch of sjw bull crap. A real shame and insult to the original.

The new 'The Twilight Zone' is unmitigated preachy, political _garbage_. Interesting premises and often great acting is completely ruined by absolutely over-the-top political messaging. In most episodes, an interesting and developing plot serves simply as a delivery mechanism for these politics. It's not sci-fi. It's not Twlight Zone. It's a disappointment.

What a colossal disappointment. Booooo

avatar

Uggg, how awful is this garbage.

had hopes up for the revival. big disappointment. only watched the pilot episode and realised they're trying to pull off a "Breaking Bad" atmosphere but forgot to add in the story. plot was bland and predictable, you could have told the whole story in 10 minutes but decided to stretch out to a whole hour.

Disappointment. I'm dropping it after 6 episodes. I love TTZ, have seen almost every episode from the original series. Was hoping this was going to be great. Sat through 6 hours of nonsense & can't bring myself to watch episode 7 & 8. This new series is just outright terrible.

I'll drop it now after 8 episodes. should have done that sooner. what a waste of time.

I just smoked some Twilight zone
