While it's great to have all of these episodes, this set is lacking in documentation. In other words, there is no insert to tell you which episode is on which disc. Night Gallery episodes were like 2-3 vignettes per episode, and I don't necessarily remember which one was on an episode with which and which season, so I wound up making myself a spreadsheet of each title, episode number, season, and disc. It took some time but it was worth it.
This set is also made up of content from 3 separate sets. The discs are all in one package, but you can tell they changed format from season 1 to season 2. I got the feeling that they weren't sure they would be making season sets beyond season 1, so they tacked on some of the more famous and fan favorite episodes (like the Vincent Price episode) from the later seasons, just in case. So with this set, you'll wind up with those episodes twice.
The bonus content is cool, with original run times and unseen footage in some uncut episodes. But if you remember seeing Night Gallery episodes in syndication with Gary Collins, those actually aren't Night Gallery episodes. They were episodes of The Sixth Sense that were repackaged as Night Gallery episodes for syndication. Yeah, I don't get it either. But if you're wondering where those are, they aren't here since they aren't Night Gallery episodes.
The acting is superb in all the episodes even if the episode's story wasn't very good. Several will stay with me..."Sins of the Father" with "John Boy Walton" is literally visceral and haunting. "Eyes" with the ever fascinating Joan Crawford. "The Cemetery" with Roddy McDowell. And Vincent Price makes an appearance here and there!
As I started out with, the bonus features especially the commentary was not to my liking. I found Guillermo Del Toro bored me with his and the other guys kept talking about production intricacies and "shop talk" that didn't interest me. I was hoping for more info on the episode on what it was really about (yes, some eps are quite ambiguous), more about why they chose certain actors and actor's memories about shooting the episodes. There is some but not as much as I would expect for a complete series set. That being said, I am delighted to have this in my collection and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys spooky anthology series.
Good quality video and audio. The extras are fun too.
