Through this anthology series, Rod Serling was able to make his own social commentaries by setting his stories in the Twlight Zone. The fact that the show was filmed in black and white actually adds to show, because many of the stories wouldn't have the same feel if done in color. There is something to be said for the stark contrast of black and white, especially when employed in the Twilight Zone.

The series did not rely on effects or tricks, but rather character-driven stories that always had a twist. For this reason, the stories are also timeless and are as enjoyable now as they were when they first aired. This show covered so much ground so well that newer television series and even theatrical films will retreat them and hope no one notices. Of course, it could be also be argued that many Twlight Zone episodes are updates or retellings of older stories.
