  • you never really know people

    was glad the two people were able to make each other happy for short time in spite of not knowing everything about each seriously cried at the end.
  • Why did Dr. Munoz's wife commit suicide? And why does he always insist on "cool air" in the apartment he never leaves?

    This rather free and extremely poetic adaptation of the famous H.P. Lovecraft story is one of the subtlest and best of the "Night Gallery" episodes. For most of its length, it concentrates on the growing warmth and affection between Agatha, a lonely young woman whose father has recently died, and Dr. Munoz, the former colleague who shared the father's interest in challenging the finality of death. But throughout the tender scenes of burgeoning love, there is always a thread of mystery. Why does Munoz never leave his rooms, and why does he get so very agitated whenever his elaborate device for maintaining "cool air" chances to malfunction? The frame of the story has a now-elderly Agatha visiting Munoz's grave - which offers two dates for his death.
  • This is, by far, my favorite episode of Night Gallery.

    Cool Air is a love story with a rather spooky twist based on the short story by the legendary H.P. Lovecraft. This is my all time favorite episode of Night Gallery. It, in it's entirety, is a very subtle episode that I love to watch over and over again. The ending is rather frightening and sad at the same time and I just love the whole story.

    Cool Air is the best episode of Night Gallery that there was and my all time favorite of all of H.P. Lovecraft's short stories. This is truly a classic tale I simply adore.
  • A woman remembers many years back about a doctor she met that worked with making people live after they are supposed to die. This is a story from the great, H.P Lovecraft.

    This is by far, my favorite Night Gallery episode. Its filled with so much warmth and understanding and the people are so real, you are swept away in the whole episode. The writing and stars in this episode are just wonderful! In the episode tragedy happens and it is really horrifying, at the very end. Basically the episode teachs us that we should not mess with the laws of science and trying to change it with chemicals and other ways that are not natural. Playing with the laws of science have thier consequences, and they may be more than what we can handle.
