The Definitive Editions are supposed to be the seasons in their proper order and with extras like next episode intros etc. or so I understand it. Sounds like the best choice. I have the collections but I bought that before the Definitive sets were released.

okay, maybe y'all can help me out.can anyone tell me what the differences are, if any, between buying the"collection" boxes,the"definitive edition "boxes, or the individual volumes? i haven't seen anything ob imdb that shows any major differences,although it was about a year ago that i checked.

The complete definitive edition with the entire series, 5 seasons, is the way to go. I couldn't believe it was being sold on amazon.com recently (only for about half a day) at $94, dropped from like $180 something! I bought it off a seller on ebay cheap for $117 but I don't think any price will ever top that amazon deal.

It's 28 dvds, and lots of the episodes have isolated music scores and commentaries. There's also a lot of great bonus features as well as a dvd with a documentary about Serling so 27 dvds with the series episodes in the original order with a bonus documentary dvd. 

The older collection boxes as I remember were more dvds and without all of the features of the set. Don't quote me on that though I'm not positive but really the best way to go would be to get the entire boxset cheap if you can.

I can tell you the differences between the individual definitive collection seasons- they're more money but packaged better (the definitive edition complete boxset is a bit filmsy cardboard) The discs are exactly the same.

oh and not to ignore the original message, but I haven't seen all of the episodes. I was never a huge fan but always liked it but found tv not the way to watch it so much (sci-fi channel cuts the episodes for example) but of what I've seen (haven't dug too much into the boxset- it's HUGE) mostly the well known ones I've always known:

This is pretty nifty, I think: Serling's PLANET OF THE APES edited into a 30 minute Twilight Zone episode.

No mention of AN OCCURENCEAT OWL BRIDGE CREEK? Maybe it's not considered canonical, since it wasn't produced for the series.  But it was very influential on a lot of feature films tht came after it.

I loved the Twilight Zone.

I think it's called "Made of Steel" or something.  A young Dennes Hopper plays a neo-nazi who is influnced by the ghost of Adolf Hitler.

And like I said there were some that gave you a good feeling instead of dread or shock.  One of those has Donald Pleasance playing a teacher about to retire.  He thinks his life was meaningless because he never did anything. Ghost(premonitions) of students who due great things and that owe there success to him come to tell hi the positive impact he had on their life.  He retires happily.

I don't remember the title, but I really found the episode where the guys who stole a bunch of gold fled into the future with it to be my favorite.  I love the ending where in the future it turns out gold is now manufactured and they had completely wasted their time and their lives for nothing.

That's The Rip Van Winkle caper, good episode, very ironic ending.

There are a few that people bring up probably just because they are well known episodes.  And there were plenty of under-rated and over rated episodes.  I personally was never a big fan of "It's a Good Life". 
Well, I "personally" think you don't know much about Science Fiction.   Wink

"Mirror Image" I caught the end of on SciFi's marathon... VERA MILES chases her elusive doppelganger around a bus terminal, eventually kindly betrayed by MARTIN MILNER, he puts his own suitcase in the wrong spot and finds himself chasing his own opportunistic doppelganger... one of the creepiest and beautiful Science Fiction!!

The above-mentioned neo-Nazi episode with Hitler coming back is entitled He's Alive actually. The Donald Pleasance episode is entitled The Changing of the Guard

Some more goodies:

One For the Angels: A kindly good natured sidewalk salesman makes his greatest pitch ever to one Mr. Death.

The Purple Testament: A Lieutenant Fitzgerald (William Reynolds), a young man serving in a United States Army infantry platoon unit located on the Philippine Islands during 1945, gains an unexpected and most decidedly unwanted foresight, the ability to read death upon the faces of men about to die in the war. Features a good performance from Dick York.

Steel: A tough and stubborn robot boxing manager decides to takes his broken down robot's place hoping to win five hundred dollars he desperately needs to survive.

Night Call: A bitter lonely old woman begins getting mysterious and terrifying phone calls in the middle of the night.
