pinnacle of 60's psychedelic anthology shows
26 October 2010 | by ccharlie183See all my reviews

if your a fan of the old twilight zone series you'll love NBC's experiment in television. Each episode is something new and unexpected even though its 40 years old. It's message is reflective of the era which has many key elements that are absent in todays media like the emphasis on thinking about what is happening instead of just the over styled empty series of recent years. I for one am hoping for a return of that psychedelic touch in todays culture but the use of hallucinogens isn't as trivialized as the thing to do as is was in the past, its become more about the party stimulants like ecstasy and cocaine which don't conjure up the same imaginative burst of culture that mushrooms, LSD, DMT, or even marijuana has. so besides my opinions on the era differences this is a great show more than worthy of a remake. but many of the episodes are of very poor picture quality likely because the original reels must've been lost or not archived.
