There's some interesting info. about the 1980s Twilight Zone over on Wikipedia. The episodes were shot on 35mm film, but rather than edit on film, the episodes were put on videotape, and edited there. For that reason, the episodes couldn't be remastered from a new 35mm print created from the original negatives, as is commonly done for DVD issues. A writer/producer for the series says they do look good on the DVDs, and that the DVD issues were a fortunate thing, since videotapes deteriorate over time (my note: I thought film deteriorated over time, as well).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think these episodes have ever been shown in syndication (other than the episodes that were shown in original syndication).
