Where to Watch TZ
Twilight Zone fans, you’re in luck. The world’s greatest anthology series is easy to find these days. (At least if you’re in the U.S. Sorry, non-U.S. fans!) But where, exactly, should you get your fifth-dimension fix? Good question.
YouTube, you say? Good luck with that. CBS polices it pretty closely. Complete episodes get taken down quickly.
Me-TV or Syfy? That’s a better option, yes, but you have to watch it (or DVR it) on someone else’s schedule. And let’s not forget the fact that reruns often have whole scenes chopped out and are filled with commercials.
It’s better to stream TZ if possible. That way, you can see it uncut and in HD quality.
- Hulu has all five seasons streaming. It’s $5.99 a month for an ads-included plan, $11.99 without.
- Amazon Prime does, too, but only if you have a Paramount-Plus subscription. It’s $4.99 a month for an ads-included plan, $9.99 without (which you can get without accessing it through Prime, btw).
But the best option, for my money, is on disc — either DVD or Blu-ray. Sure, it lacks the convenience of streaming (something that I, a daily train rider, really value), but you get every episode in pristine condition, and some cool extras as well: commentaries and other fun odds and ends, etc.
Wherever you get your passport stamped, though, I hope you enjoy your journey to a land of shadow and substance …
