    I had been thinking of buying the original series on DVD but it's a bit expensive. I remember watching reruns in the 1990s and loving it. Maybe if I get a good deal on it I'll pick it up. I am also interested in seeing this redo. Wasn't there also a late '90s or early '00s version?

    I've watched most episodes of the 80s series but it was never scary or spooky enough for me. I'm sure these new episodes will be much, much better.

    Yes, there was a 1980s and a 2000s version. I've never seen the latter, but I do recall seeing several 80s episodes when I was a child and I enjoyed them at the time, but I don't think any of them had been able to surpass the brilliance of the best episodes of the original Rod Serling black-and-white series. This trendy "dark tone" that many current series/movies adopt might suit the 2019 reboot, though.

    Well, I've asserted many times there's a ~60 year cycle. So this may be the time to do it. Like "The Haunting of Hill House" was written in 1959, and now there's the series.

    No period captures undiluted spooky like the early-'60s. The veil between this world and the next was just thinner then for a few years -- like a zone, a twilight zone.

    get the original series on blu-ray it's well worth it. i have them all on dvd in fact. i haven't seen the 80's one in years though. the (2002) one was decent but i can't wait until this one

    sometime 2005 (i guess)
    I wonder if it will come to Netflix outside the US, like they did with Star Trek.

    honestly for me i prefer buying it rather than watch it on netflix. of the many reasons Netflix if they have it at all or if they do in the future only has it for a set amount of time anyways.
    owning it you can watch it as much as you want. for example i'm currently watching season 13 of Supernatural that i bought last week on blu-ray. if i want to go back to season 4 for example i can go to my shelf and put one of the discs in. plus on that show from what i'm reading they don't have rights to certain songs for netflix so some of the music is changed yet if i put in one of the dvd's or blu-rays it's on it just as it was aired.
