My Thoughts:

Another fun road movie. Liked this one quite a bit. Not sure if I can say it is my favorite or not yet. They do make a great team. Though in this one Bob hope really went overboard on breaking the fourth wall. He did it several times here. Well worth the time put in to watch it.

In an effort to boost Tony's opinion of him, Don pretends to join the army. The ruse backfires, however, and he finds himself actually enlisted.

My Thoughts:

A fun film. Lots of funny situations in this one. Caught in the Draft has 2 of the 3 stars of the "Road to" films. Only Bing Crosby missing. Bob Hope's character here is a lot of fun to watch. The things you will get yourself into for a girl you like!

Twilight Zone, a review by addicted2dvd


Season 2: Disc 4

55. Mr. Dingle, The Strong (3/3/61)
A timid salesman (Burgess Meridith) is given super strength by a Martian experimenter. He eventually returns to normal - briefly. For the experiments have just begun!

My Thoughts:
This is one I have seen a few times before and always enjoyed it. Another fun episode. Not only does it have Burgess Meridith... who I have always liked in his episodes of the Twilight Zone... but also Don Rickles who I also always enjoyed. Attached to the end of this episode is a TV Spot for The Andy Griffith Show. Extras added to this episode is an Isolated Score and an audio commentary with Don Rickles. I couldn't wait to hear the audio commentary so I did watch it after the episode. Unfortunately there wasn't much to the commentary track... first of all the commentary was only for 1 scene of the episode instead of the whole episode... plus there was too much silence on his part considering it was just a commentary for the one scene.

56. Static (3/10/61)
Life seems to have passed by a grouchy old man (Dean Jagger). However, everything changes when an antique radio starts to broadcast programs from his youth that only he can hear.

My Thoughts:
This is another one I never seen before. Was an OK episode... but nothing that would make a favorite for me. This is another episode that there was some slight problems with the video. Seems like many I never seen on TV has these slight problems. Which could be why you never catch them on TV. Attached to the end of the episode was a TV Spot for the series My sister Ilene. Extras included with this episode is a Marc Zicree interview with Buzz Kulik and Original Production Slate.

57. The Prime Mover (3/24/61)
Ace Larsen has discovered that his business partner (Buddy Ebsen) can move things with his mind! They set out for Las Vegas and win - for a while anyway.

My Thoughts:
This was a pretty good episode... I enjoyed it. Is one of the handful I have seen before. Attached to this episode was a TV Spot for the series My Sister Ilene. The only extra on this episode is an Isolated Score.

58. Long Distance Call (3/31/61)
Before Grandma died, she gave Billy (Bill Mumy) a toy telephone, When he uses it to talk to her, his parents dismiss it as imagination - until Billy decides to join his Grandma!

My Thoughts:
This one is a very good episode that I have seen before. So far this one would rank up with my favorites. Attached to this episode is a TV Spot for The Andy Griffith Show. The extras included for this episode are an Audio Commentary with Bill Mumy and William Idelson and the Original Production Slate.

59. A Hundred Yards Over The Rim (4/7/61)
In 1847, a Western settler (Cliff Robertson) sets out to find medicine for his dying son - and stumbles into modern-day New Mexico. He returns with much more than just medicine.

My Thoughts:
Another good episode I seen before. I first saw this episode on one of the volume dvds I had. Attached to this episode is a TV spot for Gunsmoke. Extras that come with this episode includes an audio commentary with Cliff Robertson... a Marc Zicree interview with Buzz Kulik... an Isolated Score and The Twililght Zone Radio Drama staring James Caviezel.

60. The Rip Van Winkle Caper (4/21/61)
Thieves put themselves into suspended animation for 100 years after hiding a million dollars worth of gold bars. But even in the future, wealth is still far out of reach for two greedy crooks (Oscar Beregi, Simon Oakland).

My Thoughts:
This is another episode that I never seen before. was a really good episode. I really enjoyed it. Attached to this episode was a TV spot for Gunsmoke. The only extra for this episode is an Isolated Score.

My Thoughts On Season 2: Disc 4:
