4.0 out of 5 stars A Review Based On Facts August 24, 2004
Format:DVD
I bought this today and just finished the Pilot Epsiode. So this review is based on the actual DVD release, and not speculation or hearsay. and yes, IT DOES INCLUDE THE PILOT!

There has been a lot of controversy surrounding this release for months. Some of which I agree with, but most of which seems to be based on unrealistic and even fanatical speculation. Is this a perfect Night Gallery DVD? No. Is it worth buying? Without a doubt.

The Picture Quality: Is quite good. The color is all there and has obviously been enhanced and corrected. No more grainy, magenta tinted episodes like we've seen on TV for years. The transfer is crisp and color well saturated. There are a few dust spots and hairs from time to time, but no long scratches. Could Universal do better? Sure. But let's be realistic. Most of us watched these episodes on grainy TV sets with rabbit ear antennae 30 years ago. They look better on the DVD than I ever remember.

Sound Quality. This seems to have been much enhanced. Not quite Dolby Surround, but the musical score is clear and crisp, and lends a creepy layer of atmosphere the series never had back when we only had a crummy TV speaker. The sound is great, at least on the pilot.

Extras? Well, there are none, and here I agree with the critics. Would it have killed Universal to put the paintings on DVD? Or maybe include one interview with Serling or even Spielberg? This is barebones for sure.

Presentation: The box is a beautifully printed glossy gatefold with some cool photos of Rod Serling on N.G. set. It's quite nice and well done. There are 3 discs.

If you've been waiting to see the full episodes of N.G. for decades, like I have, then buy this set and don't listen to the carping from other reviewers and websites.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good news and some bad news July 13, 2004
Format:DVD
I am the coauthor, with Jim Benson, of the companion guide to "Rod Serling's Night Gallery." We've been tracking this release pretty closely and are privy to as much information as we can squeeze out of Universal Studios. We're grateful the series has been tapped for a DVD release, and the set has been struck from original, uncut prints--the same ones Columbia House used for its mail-order volumes--and not the butchered half-hour syndication version that played on the SciFi Channel for years. That said, the master for the pilot is 20 years old, and those for the series are 15 years old--acceptable, but a bit long-in-the-tooth compared to the up-to-date treatment other television series have received. Imbedded in a few of the episodes are some errors, mostly in the sound and music tracks, and it would have been preferable had Universal seen fit to correct these. We also fail to see why a series which featured the involvement of both Rod Serling and Steven Spielberg did not rate a budget that allowed special features. If Warner Brothers can load extras into DVD releases of such non-classics as "Wonder Woman" and "The Dukes of Hazzard," then Universal is out of touch with current standards in the DVD business when they fail to properly document their own classic TV shows (such as "Rod Serling's Night Gallery" and "Columbo"). However, Universal is new to the TV side of their property library and may need to get their feet wet before they finally catch up to their more forward-looking competitors.
As a caveat emptor, the first season is relatively free of errors compared to the second season. The most critical error is the crackling that runs through the soundtrack of Serling's segment "The House" (found in Episode #3). Any further critique will have to wait until the release.
And who knows, if sales for Season One are impressive enough, maybe the studio will do right by Season Two and give "RSNG" a budget that more accurately reflects its classic status.

3.0 out of 5 stars Second Season Much Better September 10, 2004
Format:DVD
No question that Night Gallery is a series that divides opinion and I'd agree with those who say Twilight Zone is more consistent in quality. Night Gallery suffers from far too many bad-to-outright-embarrassing segments that really do make you question the sanity of its creators. I assume a lot of drugs were being taken because even at its worst, NG has a kind of hallucinogenic quality that indicates the writers and directors were encouraged to be as experimental as they wanted to be even if the results didn't always cohere. As much as I love TZ and acknowledge its greatness, I still prefer Night Gallery because at its very best, NG offers individual segments that are far stronger in content and more striking in presentation. My love for stories of the macabre may also explain my preference but even the most critical viewer would have to acknowledge that Night Gallery presented some of the scariest and most hauntingly original drama ever presented on television. The problem with the new Season One DVD set is that it contains very few of the best Night Gallery segments. If I were making a judgment based on this set, I'd be pretty disappointed. The Pilot is superb as are "The Doll", "They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar", "The Dead Man," and "Certain Shadows on the Wall" but the rest are forgettable. OK, the "Little Black Bag" is very strong until the final scene but the shock ending falls flat because it is rushed and explained away rather than shown or suggested (it could have been handled without showing gore) and the sudden cut to the future lab scene destroys the atmosphere. It's a botched ending - one of many that ruined otherwise good segments. But I digress. Read more ›

Some of the episodes were good, but the "bonus" episodes were awful - terribly acted, bad writing, very disappointing.

It's the creepy follow-up to The Twilight Zone with more horror stories. Shot in color. Rod Serling is at his creepy best as the shows narrator.

Night Gallery is good but very confusing as a show
The first season of Night Gallery did indeed have that "quiet" music, composed by Gil Mellé. For years I had tape recordings of the original NBC broadcasts, and that's the exact same music.

In its first season, Night Gallery was part of a "rotating" series called... Read More

Please help me find this episode!!!
This was an Outer Limits show, episode 48, "The Premonition." It was a little girl on the tricycle, and yes, they did save her. The episode is recapped at www.tvrage.com. Just do a search for Outer Limits, and click on episode index. Hope this helps!

Night Gallery Pilot Movie
This often gets confusing- because of the way Night Gallery was packaged for syndication people often think "The Cemetary" (with Roddy McDowell), "Eyes" (with Joan Crawford) and "Escape Route" (with Richard Kiley) were just episodes of the series.

But they weren't.... Read More

Am I missing something in my 1st season set?
Quite possibly random. They buy those DVD cases from other companies, and just because the case came with a pocket doesn't mean the DVD producer put anything in it.

But then I don't own this particular DVD set. Maybe someone who does could confirm.

EDIT: Since I wrote this, I did buy the DVD... Read More
