Night Gallery

Show Summary

Night Gallery was creator-host Rod Serling's follow-up to The Twilight Zone. Set in a shadowy museum of the outre, Serling weekly unveiled disturbing portraiture as preface to a highly diverse anthology of tales in the fantasy-horror vein. Bolstering Serling's thoughtful original dramas were adaptations of classic genre material--short stories by such luminaries as H. P. Lovecraft, Fritz Leiber, A.E. van Vogt, Algernon Blackwood, Conrad Aiken, Richard Matheson, August Derleth, and Christianna Brand. Variety of material brought with it a variety of tone, from the deadly serious to the tongue-in-cheek, stretching the television anthology concept to its very limits. (CREW INFORMATION SUPPLEMENT: Jaroslav Gebr was the artist for the pilot film's three gallery paintings. For the series, all of the gallery canvases were painted by Tom Wright. The gallery's metal sculptures were created by Phil Vanderlei and Logan Elston. Most episodes contained multiple story segments. For the listing of episode credits, crew information is listed under the primary story segment except where a production aspect--music, cinematography--differs among the segments.)moreless

    • After The Twilight Zone here comes Night Gallery

      This is quite a good show, maybe not as good as Rod Serling's previous work. But still good and worth a watch. This show has a pretty good amount of good episodes and is quite well written too. Too bad this show only lasted for three years( although he died in 1975, so about two years after the show ended.) But still wish it lasted a little longer though. So, if you are a fan of The Twilight Zone, I would highly recommend this show. Although I do think people who are new to shows like this. I still think they would enjoy this. So newcomers and fans will love it!moreless
    • Next to the Twilight Zone, Night Gallery is the second greatest show of all time!

      The first time I ever saw this show I was maybe nine or ten and it was the episode titled "The Dark Boy" but it was only the end of it and after it went off they showed Rod Serling and I remember thinking 'hey, that's the guy from the Twilight Zone(my #1 favorite show of all time)'. But it wasn't until March of 2007 I beleve, when the horror channel Chiller was launched that I found out what Night Gallery was. My favorite thing about Night Gallery is at the begining of each tale when Rod Serling introduce it with a painting of the macabre in the spooky art gallery.moreless
    • Disappoing considering who made it

      I am a fan of Rod Sterling`s Twilight Zone, and i thought this show also would be great. To my disappointment it wasn`t. I saw the pilot plus season 1&2. I only liked 2 segments of the pilot in this show. They were, The Cemetery and The Escape Route. I liked The Cemetery best, because i think it had: Creepy atmosphere, good acting, suspenseful and great story. I liked the twist ending. I have seen the British lead before in several other tv-series. i think he did a great job, acting wise. I gave up watching this show after viewing season 2. If only season 1&2 had any great segments like the 2 mentioned. I think the rest of the episodes lacked the, Creepy atmosphere, good acting, suspenseful and great story.moreless
    • Night Gallery, Rod Serling's last huzza to the lost art of short horror fiction

      Not long ago, I found out to my utter delight, that the first season of Night Gallery was now available on DVD. I ordered it immediately, wild horses could not have stopped me from doing so. I was in high school when this series premiered and it instantly became a never miss event as far as I was concerned. My younger siblings risked dismemberment if they went anywhere near the channel knob while it was on. Rod Serling was one of short fiction's great champions, and Night Gallary was his last great tribute to the dying art of the short story. Night Gallery picked up where The Twilite Zone left off, and I fear there will in all probability never be an anthology series again that will do for short fiction what Rod Serling and the Night Gallery did and did so well. I dearly miss this show.moreless
    • This series was Da Bomb!Like one of the best!

      The Night Gallery was a very good tv show from the early 70's.the episodes i remember the best were ''the nature of the enemy'',''little black bag''and ''the diary''.i dont think it was as good as the Twilight zone but it was a dark-type horror series.the best episode i saw in season 1 was maybe...the house.i am waiting for season 2 to come in the mail.I can't wait til season 3 comes out on dvd!too bad mr serling died at an early age because he was the best at supernatural and fantasy.If someone made a remake in the form of a movie i would include,little black bag,cool air and maybe the diary in the movie.moreless
