Janet Tyler is in hospital having undergone treatment to make her look normal. It's her 11th trip to the hospital for treatment and she is desperate to look like everyone else. Some of her earliest childhood memories are of people looking away, horrified by her appearance. Her bandages will soon come off and she can only hope that this, her last treatment, will have done the trick. If not, her doctor has told she will be segregated with a colony of similar looking people. All that to say that truth is truly in the eye of the beholder.Written by

At the end, when the doctor is unwrapping the bandages, the view from her is a different direction than the doctor is undoing them. Clockwise from her view, and counterclockwise from his. See more »
Why do we have to look like this?
I don't know, Miss Tyler, I really don't know. But you know something? it doesn't matter. There's an old saying, a very, very old saying: "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". When we leave here, when we go to the village, try to think of that, Miss Tyler. Say it over and over to yourself. "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

Syndication prints list the episode title as "A Private World Of Darkness". See more »
I just watched this episode again for the billionth time and as the credits started to roll I noticed (strangely for the first time ever)that the title was listed as "Private World of Darkness" rather than "Eye of the Beholder". Did this episode have two titles or is one wrong? I'm sure it was the right show because the credits rolled across a still of Donna Douglas in the bandages. Anyway, it doesn't alter the fact that this is one of my 5 top greatest episodes of TTWZ! The camera work in the beginning is fantastic and I thought is was great the way they kept you from seeing the hospital workers faces until those fantastic shots of the doctor and staff. I'm also a bit curious to know if the voice was dubbed in for Donna Douglas's character Janet Tyler. It doesn't sound like her at all to me.
