"Last year, The Twilight Zone pulled one of its famous twists on the viewing audience," says Alexis Nedd. "The first three episodes were praiseworthy, with its premiere garnering an Emmy nomination for its lead actor Kumail Nanjiani, but the rest of the season failed to live up to the standard set by those episodes. Looking back, the eventual issues with Season 1 were present in those three episodes as well — the episodes were too long, its twists were delayed, and the reliance on mysterious technology was overdone — but the bait and switch still stung. CBS All Access' The Twilight Zone again allowed reviewers a glance at three episodes for its second season. Thankfully, none of the Season 2 episodes had any of the Season 1 issues. In fact, they predict a much better season for The Twilight Zone, and exhibit the thoughtfulness, surprise, and quality that the oft-rebooted anthology show deserved all along. It's refreshing that the three provided episodes of Season 2 are virtually technology-free." ALSO: It would be nice if The Twilight Zone had consistent runtimes in Season 2 after Season 1's episodes ranging from half an hour to an hour.
