The Twilight Zone's One Hour Episodes: Is Longer Better?

In 1963 the Twilight Zone’s fourth season changed to a one-hour show for its 18 episodes. The new format offered twice the story and a chance to explore ideas in more depth. But was it a change for the better? The experiment lasted only one season before reverting back to a 30-minute time slot. We will watch a selection of the one hour episodes and discuss the stars, and story lines, and why the writers and producers extended the show’s length.
