The Twilight Zone: The Complete Series 2022 DVD Review

Enter another dimension with Jordan Peele and Simon Kinberg’s modern reimagining of the classic TV series. Hosted by Academy Award and Emmy Award winner Jordan Peele and featuring an all-star cast, this complete anthology series box set will take you on a mind-bending voyage filled with endless possibilities. Experience all 20 episodes of contemporary storytelling and journey behind the scenes with exclusive special features, including featurettes, deleted scenes, gag reels, and more!

For being only 20 episodes, the 2-season series comes on a total of 7 discs, which seems CRAZY to me. That leaves plenty of space for all the episodes plus a good number of extras. The picture quality is pretty good for DVD, but of course that isn’t nearly as good as Blu-ray, which you can also get both seasons of the show on. On the other hand, the audio is great, immersing you in the series.

The extras include 3 episode commentaries, episodic promos, & deleted/extended scenes on select episodes. If you don’t know what easter eggs are, they are secrets, tricks, and jokes hidden within the show (or movie, music, video game, etc. Usually hard to spot, they might reveal a new detail or clues about the story, or simply pay homage to an inspiration that the creators loved. Those who like easter eggs will enjoy the nearly three minutes of them that are hidden throughout the season and hint back to the original series.

Star Trek: Picard Season 2 Blu-ray Review

Star Trek: Picard Season Two is a mix of good and bad when it comes to the Blu-ray that was recently released. Included in the three-disc collection are all ten episodes plus a boatload of extras. Oddly enough, even though Disc 2 shows extras, there are none on there, so don’t be surprised!

The Blu-ray release cover artwork is a little boring — pretty blue space background with photos of (almost all) the cast all put on in a big group. But more worrisome is the discs are rather precariously perched on two spindles inside the casing, with Disc 1 on the inside cover but Discs 2 and 3 stacked together on one spindle. This to me is a little dangerous and might easily be prone to scratching.

Overall, the video quality is great, especially compared to streaming, and the audio quality is beautiful. But really, it’s all the special features and extras that are the big draw here, especially for those who have already seen the season.
