Looking over the descriptions for these video downloads, most of them are NOT from the TV show "Night Gallery," but rather from a show called "The Sixth Sense" (which was a '70s TV show about a psychic - not to be confused with the M Night movie).
"Night Gallery" was a great, but short-lived anthology show, similar to Rod Serling's previous work "The Twilight Zone." After the series was done, the studio tried to make enough episodes so that they could sell the series into syndication. They took the hour-long episodes of "Night Gallery" and re-edited them to fit into 30-minute slots. But that wasn't quite enough - so they took this completely different TV show called "The Sixth Sense" and cut all of its hour-long episodes into 30-minute stories (hiring Rod Serling to film new introductions so that they'd appear to be actual "Night Gallery" episodes).
It seems these butchered episodes of "The Sixth Sense" will forever be thought of as "those horrible Night Gallery episodes that starred Gary Collins." And that's really not the case.
The "Sixth Sense" episodes are the ones featuring Gary Collins (or the character "Michael Rhodes"). So it looks like downloads #1-6 are "Night Gallery" episodes, while #7-19 are from "The Sixth Sense" (which isn't a bad series, just not on par with the "Night Gallery").
