I think they kind of failed to recognize what made the original so great.

Or, well, the writing of Serling and Beaumont.

The New Twilight Zone wasn't too shabby. Harlan Ellison's adaptation of Stephen King's Lovecraft pastiche is great, as well as the Greg Bear story about truckers who drive souls to hell that's a giant slam on the Moral Majority.

The stories for this revival were very good, and done by some of the greats of Sci-Fi (even JMS).

The revival the WB made more recently was total crap.

The Forest Whitaker abomination. The problem with it was it condescended to its audience. It was so uncomplicated as to be offensive.

This though, had lots of great moments. My favorite was the woman who found some magical remote control that allowed her to freeze the world when she said "shut up". Also the totally awesome vampire old man episode where people turn into monsters around him unsuspectingly.

I HATE Forest Whitaker and I'm pretty sure this is where my hate started.

With "Twilight Zone" theme by the Grateful Dead.

I had nightmares about this intro when I was 5.

One thing that all twilight zone remakes and movies and spin offs and all get wrong is this: in the original, Rod would always give an intro narration after a cold open. oftentimes, he was just chilling on the set, having a smoke, leaning against a fireplace or tree, and the camera would just swing over to him and he would address the audience directly. This gave me the opinion that Rod Sterling was some sort of super being pulling the string of every story, some sort of G-man character more important than anything, yet just used as a background device.

God, the original was awesome

The original was a work of total genius. Rod himself wrote most of the scripts and he had a clear sense of irony that most writers will never be able to wrap their minds around because they are too busy slavering over what's trendy. I liked the omniscient narration too, he integrated himself into story backgrounds and that has never really been duplicated by anyone else that I know of.

Exactly. No man broke the fourth wall, over and over again, like ol' Rod.
