TWILIGHT ZONE REBOOT

From collider.com –  Consider, if you will, the perfect time for the return of The Twilight Zone, a time when the machines run the show, the brands talk back, and nothing, not even the news, is what it seems. A time like right now. But much like another zoned-out head-tripper once said, “time is a flat circle,” so maybe it shouldn’t be a surprise that the last few years also saw the rise of the ideal person to replace the original sci-fi philosopher, Rod Serling. I’m talking about Jordan Peele, the sketch comedian turned modern day horror maestro who—fresh off the record-breaking success of his sophomore feature, Us—is shepherding us back through the spinning door into a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. (Also known as CBS All Access.) Together with co-executive producers Simon Kinberg and Marco Ramirez, Peele has brought to life the third iteration of The Twilight Zone, and much like the two versions that came before it, the results are a decidedly mixed bag. But when this new Twilight Zone is good, it is deliriously good, and more importantly, it manages to speak simultaneously to the horror, the absurdity, and the hope of our times all at once. Should you give it a shot? Do-do-do it.
