I agree that most of the hour episodes are a bit tedious.

Some notable exceptions:

"Death Ship", "Jess-Belle", "Miniature" (the only episode to ever use colorization, but only for the scenes inside the dollhouse), "On Thursday, We Leave For Home" & probably a couple of others (it's been a while since I've watched).

Only the fourth season featured hour episodes; the show thankfully went back to the half-hour format the final season.
It's also notable that there were only 18 of the hour episodes (about 1/2 the normal number), which makes sense since it would've been like doing the normal number, squeezed into half the stories. I recommend Marc Scott Zicree's "The Twilight Zone Companion" for all the behind-the-scenes stuff.

I'm more interested in the backstory of why and when did they convert to an hour format? I'm a huge Twilight Zone fan, but unfortunately, these episodes are more like sitting in on an acting class, and some of the actors could use some more training. All brooding and shouting, useless emotion for nothing. The stories have no mystery, eeriness or atmosphere. I "skimmed" the first 2 discs and I believe I'm not going to watch the others, very disappointing for a show I hold in high regard. Stick to the other TZ dvd's that you can check out from NYPL.
