A modern revival of the classic science fiction horror anthology show The Outer Limits (1963). Episodes often have twist-endings and involve aliens. Sometimes, a story from one episode continues in a later episode.
Produced at the same time as the more well-known The Twilight Zone (1959), this series was an extension of the tradition of radio horror and supernatural dramas such as Light's Out, The ... See full summary »
Similar in format to Serling's much more famous "Twilight Zone" series. Each week we get a new tale, represented by a painting in an old museum. Whereas the tales in "Twilight Zone" were more science fiction, these tales have a darker, more horrific edge.Written by
Episodes from the hour long The Sixth Sense (1972), starring Gary Collins, were edited down into half-hours, and added to this show's syndication package. Studios find it easier to sell programs in syndication when they have more episodes in the package, as local stations know audiences are more likely to grow tired of a program if the same episodes are repeated over and over again within a short period of time. Adding the edited The Sixth Sense (1972) programs made syndicating the program easier. See more »

Major changes were made to most episodes for syndication. The 60-minute episodes were edited down to 30 minute packages, with major edits to some of the 30-40 minute segments of the original shows. In cases of segments that were only 15-20 minutes in length, these were padded out by adding stock footage, newly shot scenes, and footage from Hollywood movies such as Silent Running and Fahrenheit 451. Most musical cues were also replaced for syndication. In order to augment "Night Gallery"'s syndicated run, episodes of The Sixth Sense were edited down to 30 minutes, had new introductions by Rod Serling tacked on, and were added to the syndicated run of "Night Gallery."

The Night Gallery was Rod Serling introducing tales of terror and irony much like he did for the Twilight Zone. While the TZ dealt more with Sci-Fi, Night Gallery dealt with the macabe. Damn, was it good and scary. The stories that stood out in my mind were the Tune In Dan's Cafe, Green Fingers and They're Aren't Anymore McBanes. Talk about scary. I remember watching the McBanes episode and it scared the daylights out of me and my mother who was watching it with me. The TUne in Dan's Cafe is very haunting. To me this is one of the best anthology shows ever, ranking up there with the Outer Limits(the original) Tales From the Darkside, One Step Beyond, and the great Twilight Zone. I love the fact that the Sci-Fi channel runs Twilight Zone episodes back to back in front of the older Outer Limits episodes. Now if only it would add the Night Gallery all would be perfect in the afternoon. The Night Gallery is classic horror anthologies at their best. Great acting, great stories, scary as hell. Pass the popcorn and get ready for some real chills. way to go Rod Serling another classic show.
