We’ve covered quite a bit of Twilight Zone here on THELIBERALDEAD, mostly thanks to the nice folks at IMAGE that sent over the entire series for consideration. Now, it seems that they will be releasing the entire Eighties Twilight Zone series onto DVD, and I can’t wait. Nothing tops the O.G. Twilight Zone, but man, do I love the Eighties run of the show as well. I’m fairly certain they aren’t planning on sending a copy over for review this time around, so I’s say this will be the last word you hear about the set on this site, but I felt as if it were an important enough home video release that I needed to alert you of its existence. The set will street on August 26th, and the pre-order is already live on Amazon. Check out the press release below, and pick a copy up for yourself. One can never have too much Twilight Zone in their home video library.
