The Twilight Zone: Season Two (2020) (Blu-ray/DVD Review)
Starring: Jordan Peele, Zazie Beetz, John Cho
Rated: UR/Region A/1:78/1080p/Number of Discs 2 (Blu-ray) 3 (DVD)

Executive Producers Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s modern reimagining of the classic TV series continues the legacy of socially conscious storytelling. Featuring enthralling narration from Peele and an all-star cast including Tony Hale, Ethan Embry, Billy Porter, Jurnee Smollett, Joel McHale, Christopher Meloni, Jenna Elfman, Damon Wayans Jr., Topher Grace, and Gretchen Mol, Season Two uses introspection and self-exploration to usher viewers into a dimension filled with endless possibilities.

The second season of Jordan Peele’s version of The Twilight Zone is a show that saw a big improvement in its episodes in season 2, but despite that improvement, it has a bit of an odd release with a normal DVD release and then a burned on-demand BDr Blu-ray release. Sadly, gone in this year’s release is the option in the extras to watch these shows in the classic black and white that we are used to seeing classic episodes of The Twilight Zone in. This is a little thing, but the option was there in the season 1 release, and wish it was here for this one. Especially since as mentioned before this season tops the first one in just about every way you can think of. This was a solid season that told some very eerie stories and seemed to have a little something for everyone. But if this is the direction was are going with the modern version of The Twilight Zone, then I welcome more seasons.

This time around we have ten episodes of various directors. Much like the original series, each episode in this incarnation of The Twilight Zone deals with different topics such as supernatural occurrences, racism, social issues, fake news, alien invasions, and immigration with an unusual and unexpected twist in each one. We have cameras that can turn back time, an episode dealing with a strange gun, and even a man changing things in his a small town by using a smaller model of it. I think the creative side is really showing here with this season. It isn’t perfect by any means but it’s solid, no matter if you get the DVD or the Blu-ray.
