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.Read more ›
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.

The last two episodes are very far out and not easy to understand. We like this better than the Twilight Zone.Published 4 days ago by LUVSERIES69

|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 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

|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

|Horrifying TV movie circa 1972||
I don't know and can't find the movie you are describing and I have a big collection but sounds
great. If you liked that movie you have to see Don't Be Afraid of the Dark! just a suggestion.
