38 dark half hour episodes, of mystery and suspense. Season five, one of the finest out of its seven season run, proves once again that the best direction and performance in classic TV entertainment is right here--at its very best. The writing, too, never seemed to change in its seven year run. Always the best story telling in TV history, much like The Twilight Zone. Suspense and mystery was always the name of the game for Alfred Hitchcock Presents.
