Critical Response

Rod Serling quoted in The Twilight Zone Companion:

Our shows this season were too padded. The bulk of our stories lacked the excitement and punch of the shorter dramas we intended when we started five years ago and kept to for a while. If you ask me, I think we had only one really effective show this season, “On Thursday We Leave for Home”... Yes, I wrote it myself, but I overwrote it. I think the story was good despite what I did to it.
