Anyone else have this? I spent enough time dropping very usubtle hints to my better half, and found this under the tree!

As I slowly but surely make my way through this set, it strikes me that in it's own way, TZ presented some of the best "ghost-like" stories ever put on TV. Just like the best ghost stories are at their best in the short story form, the greatest, scariest TZ episodes are 1/2 hours. It's almost painful to watch the writers, etc., trying to stretch some stories to an hour.

The black and white helps also - "The After Hours" and "Long Distance Call" (among others) scared the crap out of me as a little kid; not grossed out, but genuinely creeped out. I still can't watch too many at a time, esp. at night!

Ooooo, you're lucky! I don't own it, but I've been obsessively checking it out of the library for a while now. I love TZ!

I own this although I haven't watched the entire series yet. One of my favorites, which I saw as a kid and never forgot is "Little Girl Lost," about the child who gets lost in another dimension.
