This show was edited from sixty minute episodes to thirty minutes and added to Night Gallery (1969) for syndication. Because this show essentially ran for one season, it had too few episodes to sell to local stations in syndication, as those stations want a series with a certain number of episodes to keep their audience from tiring from constant repeats. By combining the two shows into one, it was much easier to sell the combined package of both shows. See more »
All twenty-five episodes of this series were edited to 30 minute length and were added to the syndicated run of Night Gallery, with new introductions by Rod Serling added to tie it into the other series. This was done in order to augment "Night Gallery"'s syndication package. See more »
I was just a preteen in the early 70's, but I too fondly remember this show. I was into all things horror and scifi, and compared to Night Gallery, The Night Stalker, and a handful of others, none was as genuinely eerie as The Sixth Sense. ESP wasn't really about reading minds or predicting shapes on the backs of cards, but mostly about ghosts reaching out from the grave for one reason or another. That's about where the similarities with the Bruce Willis movie end. Well, that, and the creepiness factor. I imagine I'd be embarrassed by the early 70's production values if I saw it now, but it's still on my DVD release wish list. And to second another opinion read here, don't even bother with the episodes that were trimmed down to about 22 minutes for inclusion in the dying season of the Night Gallery--they were horrendous, incomprehensible, and totally lost the disturbing edge that was often built over the hour-long version.
