Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “I’d go with the 1959 Twilight Zonein the format of your choice. I own the Blu-Ray season sets and can easily vouch for their quality, but if you don’t mind DVD quality (which will be the same for the handful of episodes shot on video) then the complete DVD collection is more economical.” Alex says, “I recommend picking up the collector’s edition of The Thing.
