Whether it’s acting, writing or producing, Jordan Peele is the king of creeping his viewers out.
This now includes with the reboot of The Twilight Zone.

Yowza! What a cast! So, how are people feeling about the show since being released on Monday?
Well, my expectations were far exceeded. The dark jazz drumming under the comedic improv scenes of “The Comedian” was some next level stuff. Chills, man. I think that Mr. Serling would have been proud. Thanks for making it happen, @JordanPeele & @thetwilightzone Great work.

Call me old fashioned but THE TWILIGHT ZONE works best in monochrome / 25 minute episodes. The weakest season of the original CBS series is the fourth one where episodes were distended out to an hour. When I heard this new one was a 1 hour series my enthusiasm balloon went PFFFFT

Really impressed with the first two episodes of the new TWILIGHT ZONE. Rod Serling’s prophetic ironies are given razor-sharp modern teeth. Feels like finding a new sweater that fits like one you’ve been wearing for years.

Watching the first episode of the new #TwilightZone.
Immediate thoughts: Pacing *is* an issue. The swearing is jarring if you’re a fan of the original series. And I kind of wish they shot it in black and white.

So, pretty mixed reviews so far, but if you want to see the show for yourself, the first two episodes will air on Citytv starting on April 4th with the rest on Thursdays to follow.
