Early 1970's weekly TV scary anthology; some scary, others creepy and still others scary funny ! Rated PG. Some were good, others not-so. It was the big older evolving brother of the early 1960's Twilight Zone but at times, more horror than weirdness with a dash of comedy.. Rod Serling hosts. Welcome to the Night Gallery ! Anyone who watched TV in the late 1960's to early 1970's while growing up will reminiscence.

I respectfully disagree with the other comments here. I feel that Night Gallery, as erratic as the quality was, has been underrated, and had some good and a few excellent episodes, including a superb adaptation of Conrad Aiken's short story "Silent Snow, Secret Snow." I think fans of The Twilight Zone will find it worthwhile to check out Night Gallery. In this library there is (or used to be) an excellent book about the series, "Rod Serling's Night Gallery: An After-Hours Tour."

As the story goes - (Back in 1964) - TV's "The Twilight Zone" was cancelled mainly due to its host and creator, Rod Serling having often voiced his rapidly dwindling interest in continuing to be part of the series' production.

So, with that in mind - I do find it kinda odd, indeed, that 5 years later (1969) Serling would return to television, hosting a program that (IMO) was a blatant rip-off of "The Twilight Zone".

Yes. These 1-hour "Night Gallery" episodes (filmed in colour) did have some interesting plot-lines - But their stories were generally badly realized by too much weak script-writing.

And, besides that (from my perspective) - With Serling hosting the show - He appeared to be noticeably bored with what he was doing.

*Note* - Rod Serling died within less than 2 years following Night Gallery's cancellation in 1973. He was just 50 years old at the time.

For serious horror, see Disc 5, Episode 22: The Caterpillar.

Rod Serling is of course the genius behind The Twilight Zone. I'd seen Night Gallery before but I believe that was the movie with Joan Crawford. This is just terrible, the acting, writing, production, unwatchable. I stopped after about 2 episodes, skip it.
